    I had a good experience. I sold several near my asking price and bought one at a good price. I will be back!

    I thought it was odd too but I guess it was because there were so many empty tables and the shriners were missing out on revenue from them. It is what it is. I didn't see much buying or selling happening while I was there. Too much crap and not enough guns in my opinion.

    Was expecting a little more myself. Walked out with 2 AK mags for 25 bucks. Add the door fee of 8 and they were 16.50 each. No different then buying online. Won't keep me from going back. Didn't see Sawman trying to pawn his shirts off. Maybe next time..

    I was hoping to find some AK mags but only saw a painted Chinese 30rd. Meh. Hard to find anything AK here. No screaming deals on Milsurps either.

    Yup, which isn't even a great price if it wasn't painted. He's had some cool surplus rifles in the past for decent prices. Not sure what his name is but I've bought a few things from him before.

    You know, a wild ass thought, before going to a show like that you fellows that are bringing something to sell and you fellows looking to purchase items may say so and tell the price you are wanting, and the time you will be there.

    So often it seems these shows are more Blind mans bluff.. with complaints afterwards .
