I'm going both days.  Pick the day you want to see the Sinister and I'll get him there.  Making stock kits tonight.
Link Posted: 12/29/2017 9:20:06 PM EDT
If my brother in law gets over his cold we're going tomorrow.
Link Posted: 12/29/2017 9:32:36 PM EDT
It's supposed to be colder on Sunday, so I might go Sunday. I haven't gone shooting in weeks, so I might want to take advantage of the warmer weather tomorrow.
Link Posted: 12/30/2017 12:26:39 AM EDT
The Sinister and I made up 3 Mk8 kits, so I'll be there tomorrow wandering around.  Will bring him Sunday morning and we'll go to lunch.

Borrowing his left-hand .22" LR upper for my demo "gun" on a dark green EP Armory 80% lower, w/ the multi-colored Mk8 prototype on it.

I don't want to drive when it's iced up, so I'm thinking Saturday. Just need to figure out a time.

That's a valid point.

Saturday might be a better idea.

If backbencher is going in the afternoon, then I can to the Winchester Gun Range in the AM and then head to the show.

Anyone want to meet at King Tut in Ft Worth, maybe around noon or so and then head to the show?
Link Posted: 12/30/2017 1:42:24 AM EDT
We'll do that.  King Tut @ noon.

You're welcome to come out today.  I'll be there most of the afternoon.  If not we'll catch you @ the next BigTown show in Mesquite.

I don't want to drive 40 minutes to wait in line for an hour to look at beanie babies.

Thanks

If nothing else, you will get to see Lego gun parts!

Lol.  I'm selling my Lego rifle stock kits at this show.  There won't be a line.  Fort Worth shows tend to be pretty good, albeit they're a little smaller under Trump.  Picked up a rusted #4 last show for $35.
Link Posted: 12/30/2017 3:59:30 PM EDT
Holy crap.  Huge show.  Line in the parking garage.

I might try the show again tomorrow. I thought that I was pretty much over my bug, but I pulled into the parking garage and I felt the rumble in my stomach and knew I had to head home...fast!

Just holler when you get here.  Thanks for lunch.

It is.  I hope it isn't as miserable as the last show they did.  It's not even listed in gunshows-usa.  They're bragging it's the largest show in Texas - it ain't.  It may have been @ one time.

My favorite show is Big Town.  Free parking, big show, good BBQ at Soulman's.  End of the month.

I'll probably go.  @ least the parking is free.

When you weren't looking, I snagged a S&W Sport upper - the Mk 1 w/ no FA & no port door - for $30.  Will probably make another stock demo gun out of it.

If I do it will be Sunday. Maybe we can get some of the old heads together for Mexican food and margaritas afterward.

FW_wife just got back from grocery shopping and said it's slick out.  The middle girl was headed to work & saw 5 wrecks in 2 miles.  Will check road advisories before coming down.
Link Posted: 12/31/2017 2:03:35 PM EDT
Yeah, it's pretty slick. I had to run out for coffee and almost spun out. I'm not going to chance it.
Link Posted: 12/31/2017 2:22:40 PM EDT
[Last Edit: 12/31/2017 2:29:29 PM EDT by backbencher]
Yeah, not much to be gained by hawking gun stock kits @ a show when there's nobody there, then spinning out on ice on the way home.

ETA:  Looking @ https://drivetexas.org/#/13/32.7384/-97.3417?future=false&resources=traffic, most of the highways leading to the show are icy.  Looks like I might could make it on surface streets, but probably not gonna chance it.
Link Posted: 12/31/2017 5:53:30 PM EDT
Any word on the *possible* ND we heard at the show yesterday? Still not 100% sure what that was.
Link Posted: 12/31/2017 7:12:41 PM EDT
No idea.  Haven't checked the Telegram.
