So, who's going?

Likely it will be another Ho-Hum show.

I am thinking about stopping by on Sunday maybe. I have a kimber I was going to try and sell, but I may just hold on to it.

Id take a Ho hum show anyday...we havent had a gunshow in 4 months on this side of the state...Tampa- Orlando sure ...but our smaller shows to the north dried up for some reason....

Anyone looking to get into the promoter game nows the time
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

Lower than normal attendance today, by 1 pm the paved parking area had empty parking places.
There are lots of good deals to be had on firearms, ammo and reloading supplies.
I picked up a police style 12 gauge pump, new in the box for $180 out the door.
Saw 9mm for 20 to 24 cents a round.
Primers were available for under $30 per 1000.
Powder is coming down, but poor Space Coast Bullets will be sitting on powder for a long time, with the prices they had on powder today.

Heard interesting chatter from a couple dealers today, that today is the day to buy, as when the shooting starts with North Korea, prices at the next show will be back to pre election levels.
On that, we will see.

Next show is June 10 & 11.

I might give it a go tomorrow, can always use more reloading supplies if the price is good.

Same ole s';t...Better buy before the shooting starts. Prices are dropping and dealers are hurting...Don't know if prices will go up but I have some form of this song and dance numerous times before

Somebody has to explain to me how bombing N. Korea would cause a major disruption in the domestic US gun market.
