Default Gun Show in Mobile

Anyone ever been to the gun show at the ABBA Shrine? Was thinking of heading out there tomorrow instead of FWB. Cant find many deals there and wanted to try someplace new. ARe there deals to be had or am I wasting my gas?

Waste of gas. Deals (or lack thereof) will be about the same. Plus, if you are going to buy a handgun, you'll have to get a transfer across state lines...

The FWB show was an utter disappointment today. Half of the exhibit hall was closed and empty. Those who were there were the regulars (Jay's, etc.) and the prices were regular retail plus ($429 LC9s, etc.).

Default Give It a Try

Slide on over to the show in Robertsdale one time. I find it interesting in that there is new faces and new dealers. One preception is that there is more non firearms stuff than most shows. No Jay's either to waist your time.

Can't buy pistols even with a CWP but there is allot of scopes,bags and pouches,reloading,mags,loaded ammo,cleaning gear,etc,etc. I find it worth the trip. --- SAWMAN

Any more info, like a link, on this? I'm not familiar with it at all. But I agree that the FWB show was a joke...very disappointing.
