There were 3 separate lines to the door and this is a small portion of one of them.

It sure is nice when you get to bypass the lines and go in the side door.

So that's what hundreds of unprepared people look like.

the funny part is the guy running the show now has a "valet parking" area and you know when the rest of the lot fills up he is easily able to force people into utilizing it do to lack of parking.

The gun show in Chantilly , VA yesterday was similar to that, except there was 2 lines wrapped around both sides of the convention center (huge building) all the way to the back. Interestingly enough even with both these massive lines there was still 8 or so Code pink women and 2 men with them dressed in BDUs (I guess trying to up their credibility) hollering for an assault weapon ban. We laughed at them. The car line trying to get to the show was backed up roughly a mile or so back out onto the highway , and nearby lots where impounding cars left and right.

It was pretty crazy considering it was 2pm on a Friday and last time i went at exactly the same time and there was no line at all. The cheapest I saw Pmags for was 40$.

Sadly I don't have any pics but I thought I'd share anyway , hopefully someone else does.

Same lines and crowds in Melbourne Florida today. It's usually crowded, but today was much worse. $900+ for a case of PMC, $3,000 for a Colt 6920, $450 for stripped Spikes lowers

I went for the spectacle, haven't really bought anything at a gun show since the Internet.

There were well over a thousand people at opening at the Dulles Expo in Chantilly.

2 lines, stretching nearly all the way around the expo center.

It was like that at Harrisburg three weeks ago but nobody seemed to be buying. Maybe thats why Obama and Reid are leaking the "no new gun control" mantra --Obama accidentally really stimulated the economy and has to shut it down before somebody starts hiring or something crazy like that....

Wichita was packed today.......

Used beat 16 inch AR carbines averaged $2800.
When I left at 1pm there was a line 100 yards long waiting to get in.

There were some excellent deals to be had though if you were not looking
for military semi-autos.........

If those dumbasses would each (nationwide) give the NRA $50 they wouldn't have anything to panic about.
Link Posted: 12/29/2012 2:29:31 PM EST
I was at wichita too. Only noticed one vendor with pmags, 40 for non window, 45 with. Every AR was around 2k plus.

not a gun show, but my local gun shop. they said they have sold 2500 guns in the last 7 days. they had to limit the amount of people inside the store to 200 people. they have people sleeping in their cars to be first in line at opening.... its nuts .

I noticed most had this glazed over look on their face.
They were there to buy ARs and the like but suddenly were faced
with the reality prices had outstripped their means. They wandered around
from table to table looking for something they could afford. Many you could tell
by speaking with them, they knew nothing about guns but wanted an AR....

BUT deals were there, had a friend get 5 Colt 20 round mags at a great price.
There were a couple great deals I passed on for tree guns.........

It wasn't this bad when sh!t was actually "banned".
Link Posted: 12/29/2012 2:46:04 PM EST
Lines like that = no good deals, IMHO But it is a sign of these times, sorry to say.

all those who voted for Obama raise your hand
