Ft. Lauderdale Armory Gun Show

Post by jim640 » Sat Mar 01, 2014 8:13 pm

So I had an extra $7.00 in my pocket today and figured I had two choices:

1. Go to the gun show at the armory

2. Wipe my rear with it and flush it down the toilet [smilie=042.gif]

I chose #1.

I made the wrong choice.

I have never been to a crappier, smellier, worse deals, horrible parking, more crowded gun show in my 53 years of existence. It makes the war memorial show look like Tulsa. And please, to the guy in the first aisle: just put your stinkin' prices on your guns, don't make me ask (which I didn't). So cross another show off my list. I will just drive down to Miami every few months. :ber

Sad... Broward is truly doomed when it comes to large-ish gun shows.

I've only been to the NGA show once before and was thinking about giving it another chance tomorrow. I wrote WMA off long ago, so I guess no Broward shows for me other than occasional mini shows...

I did find a few deals there last time (ammo, scope), but it was pretty ghetto. Think I'll skip it today. Going to the Oakland Park American Legion show instead.

SoFla is void of decent shows. Planning a trip to the OK show this year.

They need to mix things up a bit. How about a Gun & Tool show, Gun & Hot Rod show (or a Gun & Girls w/Big Jugs show), etc. Something interesting/different that will get more bodies through the door.

Thank you jim640, I was going to this show until I read your post. You save me time and gas, thanks again. I will have to wait for the Miami show, it's not great but at least the aisles are wide enough. I felt violated at the Ft. Lauderdale- War Memorial Auditorium. [smilie=012.gif]
