Anyone get anything good at the gun show? Prices didn't really seem like too great of deals to me. Ammo prices especially. 9mm Luger was $13 for 50 the cheapest I found... it's $9.47 at Wal Mart. All I picked up was an ammo can.



So.... what'd ya get?

The prices on Mossberg 500 were good. Several vendors had the 500 with pistol grip and heat shield for $329. One had a used Roadblocker for $289.

Cheapest .380 I was was $28 and I think it was reloads if I remember correctly. USA Performance sells factory rounds cheaper than that.

I can vaguely remember you could go to a gun show and actually find good deals on guns and accessories, it's getting to be a joke,if you buy something they should at least refund the gate fee.

I got up this morning and thought about going. Then thought about the 20 mile drive, the $7 admission and the lack of good deals the last half a dozen shows I went to, so I stayed home and did chores around the house.

Did you see any good deals ($300 or less) on LCPs ?

I was happy to find Georgia Arms 180gr 10mm JHP's for 21.50 (50 count bags). The Georgia Arms ammo is the main reason I go....I'd never buy a gun at the show unless I found a crazy good deal. Unfortunately those are few and far between.

A friend said he found some 380 there, but it was about the same as on line with shipping so he didn't get any. I got a box of 50 round box of 38 sp (lead) for $15.

I found some decent deals I think.



Got me a stripped AR lower (Spikes Tactical) for $110 out the door. (I wanted stripped to build a pistol AR). Been wanting a stripped lower and have always read Spikes was quality stuff, so I am happy about that.



Ammo can with 500rds of .223 brass cased PMC for $150 out the door. About standard prices I could find online, and I didnt have to pay shipping.



Some stripper clips for the .223 and spoons to reload...and a leather pocket holster for my Kel Tec PF9



I was happy with it. I have been looking at pretty much all of the above to get online, and of those I got the lower receiver cheaper at the show, and the pocket holster was a few bucks cheaper.



Also, forgot to add I got to finger a new SCAR-L, to bad about the $4k price tag though. Gave me an idea about them, if I were to buy one I would get the SCAR-H though.



Worth the entry fee and the 4 hours I spent drooling.

dont buy any 380 from there... the only guy that had any left sold me a box for my new diamondback db380 i got and only about 1/4 of the rounds actually went off..... i was concerned my new gun was a failure but you can see a definite firing pin strike on the primer.

Thanks for starting this post.

I andfour friends went, 1 LEO and his 2 year old daughter, (Mom's day off), 1 retired Army, 1 Alaskan native & this Olde Pharte and we enjoyed the experience. Needless to say we are all "gun people" and were not shopping, just looking, although I was looking for some 45ACP hollow points for my 1917 S&W revolver, which I found for $21.50 for 50 rounds. First time to find what I went after and not buy anything else.

Our LEO friend bought some .303 Enfield ammo for an antique English Armyrifle his Dad had left him, plus a Taurus 22 revolver for plinking. "Alaska Mike" bought a bunch of 40 caliber ammo for his son, who is "legally" blind and recently won a match in Oklahoma. ???(Ask me)

As we were leaving, our LEO friend caught us and asked us to sign a petition to get Judge Kinsey re-elected as she is a staunch supporter of Law and Order. We gladly complied, at least the three of us Escambia County registered voters. When our friend Alaska Mike was asked if he was a registered voter, he answered, "Yes, in Homer Alaska." The lady answered, "Thank you for Sarah." We all had moist eyes.

mekell (2/6/2010)I bought a bore snake for a .223 for $15. Same product at Acadamy was $19.
I bought one alast year from the guns show last time I went, bad thing is you pay $7 to get in to look at mostly over priced stuff, at lease since the Obama scare started.
