Fort Myers Gun Show, any good? thinking about stopping by this coming weekend, do they allow private sales?

The last time I was there was pre covid.
At that time, private sales from individuals was allowed.  No more private sales from vendors.
If you are looking for AR stuff, that's the place to be.  IMHO there aren't good deals like it was years ago.  Shoot Straight owns the show.
$12 admission, $5 to park.

Haven't been there in 2 or 3 years. I may go just to remind myself why I don't go to gun shows anymore.

Considering deals are rare, and there are a number of competing gun shows that are cheaper, this will keep me away.  I used to go for powder but by the time I pay to get in I might as well pay Hazmat.

Reminds me....the Guy that would walk around wearing a t-shirt $17 is too much!.

Every show.

I haven't been in 2-3 years. No private sales tables is the death knell for me. The only redeeming quality for the gun show would be having the chance to fondle whatever you are interested in purchasing online.

Trust me. That is exactly what will happen. The last time I went, there was nothing (and I mean nothing) that you couldn't get cheaper other places. I am not a Shoot Straight hater, but I believe they basically ruined the Suncoast shows.

It’s a fine show. See a lot, have a beer, don’t hate just to be cutting-edge
