I must be old and grouchy.  West 7th parking is such a nightmare I rarely go to Fred's anymore.  I've been in Heim once, and the chopman was nowhere to be seen.

The good news on Magnolia is that the Kents took over Chimera, and they brew decent beer.

Sadly, I anticipate a saturday filled with chores.  Sunday going to church and lunch with wife and MIL.

Wish I could hit the gun show. If something changes for saturday, I'll check back.

Looks like we're sleeping in Saturday, petting bats @ the Botanical Gardens next door Saturday afternoon, and will hit the gun show Sunday afternoon.

Sunday noon @ King Tut?  Railhead BBQ (never been, was always from the wrong side of the Trinity)?  I'd say Fred's on Currie Street but there's no parking.

I would but I'm at the station on Saturday.  Get off Sunday morning and gotta head to Sanger.  Check out my Fuddruckers thread.  I might be back between 3-5 on Sunday.  Just not sure.

Fort Worth was a good show - got the wife a CC purse for less than $200.  Had NO idea purses ran that high.

17-18 March

Denton
Waxahachie
Mesquite Big Town

Soulman's BBQ is only an exit or 2 south of Hwy 80.  We may have to eat @ Soulman's and then carpool to Big Town if the parking situation remains problematic.  In days past I would camp out the night before the show, wake up in the RV, and stroll in.

Just saw this. Have no free time lately. Weekend are booked about a month out.

I would like to meet some of y'all. Need to try harder to get to one of the DFW meets.

@75149

Could we carpool from your house to Soulman's to Big Town & back to your house?  Parking's an issue, and the fewer cars we have to try to cram in there the better.

What time and how many people?  My estate is not palatial but I could possibly find suitable parking nearby..

I do have a van that seats 6, 7 if some of you guys are skinny.

Say 11:30 your house, Soulman's at noon, show from 1 to 3:30-4?

Moar importantly, which day?

Has to be Saturday for me.  I work 12hr Saturday and Sunday night so I would be in turrible shape on Sunday.



I know of a local place y'all can park if you want to ride. My neighbor is having an open house which will make for cramped parking in an old neighborhood.

Saturday it is.  Lemme call Soulman's tomorrow, see if we can park in the back of their lot through their slow afternoon.  That would be easiest.  I'll post it here.

TLDR:  We're meeting in Mesquite - somewhere - dining @ Soulman's @ noon Saturday, then carpooling to the show.  Carpool location to be locked down tomorrow, hopefully Soulman's.

Checked w/ Soulman's, they don't have the parking space.  Looks like a spanish-speaking Jehova's Witness church next door, don't know if I can get hold of em.

ETA:  Annnd the Spanish church meets on Saturdays, so that's a no go...

Cool. I haven't met them. Me and @75149 had a small beef a few months back.

Probably means we can be good friends.

I'm not really feeling like Soulman's for lunch after Texas de Brazil yesterday but I will certainly pick you guys up and run a carpool if needed.

That way you can drink at lunch and do drunk buying at a gun show, even better than when online

Parking at Mesquite was easy.   Strangely, no NRA booth.

eta:  no Runner Runner either.  SAW guns is here, but looks like they brought fewer offerings.

Thanks for the report.  Usually the NRA booth is to the right of the entrance, up front in that little crowded corner.  The old sailor & his wife weren't there?

Next weekend:

24-25 March

Abilene
Dallas Market Hall - I should be there one day, guessing Sunday (Hopefully this will be bigger than the last one)
Paris
Jefferson (Why so close to the Paris show on the same weekend?)

I've been to more Big Town shows than a lot of folks.  And I know exactly where the NRA table usually is....

It wasn't there.

The one in Abilene will likely not be worth your time, unless you are in the mood for a $500 bubba-Mosin or a bunch of beef jerkey.

Not hearing an update, I rolled over to big town at 2pm (not knowing they closed the entrance on Samuell) and I remember why I haven't been to a show in five years

Between prices and the people (including one shifty looking black guy asking a huge dealer if he did background checks) it was interesting to say the least.

Quite a few women buying guns, and borderline eye candy working the tables to distract you from the prices

The DACA Show at Market Hall will be going on this weekend, March 24th and 25th....I will be set up in my usual spot, Row E towards the end cap of the first group...looking forward to getting some cool new stuff, as I always find something at this show. Hope to sell a bunch too, so I can buy the new stuff....

Put a bolt face coaster or something out so we can stop by.  ARFCOM has been going to that show as well.

I'll more than likely hit Market Hall Sunday morning.
