Friend of mine went, looking for an entry level 16 gauge O/U with no luck, other than that he didn't see much of anything noteworthy.

Place was packed Saturday morning. I stood outside and passed out 2A Day flyers for awhile before going in. Made a few small purchases. Gun/ammo prices were high but like you would expect. Nice venue but parking was $10.

It was crap.  Maybe a third of the tables had guns.  Rest were knives, surplus, food, luggage, etc.  Expensive to get in and expensive parking.  Saturday morning was fairly crowded.  

There's been a handful of gunshows in downtown Des Moines over the years.  This was the first in a long time.

I've only been to a couple of shows, but this one was notably unpleasant. Parking $10, entry $10, and nothing really worth buying unless you don't have the internet (pretty much all shows). Saw multiple vendors selling standard brass 223 for $2 a round. Naturally, multiple booths with UTG, NCstar, AIM, etc. products for pretty shocking prices. I'd say it was worth going for the experience, but it was packed with a bunch of non-maskers and cheap/high-priced stuff. You should be glad you didn't make it

Now I'm pissed I didn't go. Any business not forcing the mask issue deserves at least a little of my money.
