Thanks

Waterloo is a small show, more junk vendors than gun dealers.
Des Moinse show this weekend at the state fair grounds is better, much more C&R and gun dealers than junk vendors.

I'm guessing most of the big guys will be in DSM.

Ya, big dealers will likely be in DSM.

I was surprised to see the waterloo show scheduled on the same weekend as the des moines show, poor planing.
I'm less than 10 miles from waterloo and we are driving to des moines saturday.

They never seem to post any hours.

That was the Des Moines show promoter screwing with MAC.

We are a smaller ffl with 4 tables, tactical creations had 20ish, and gabes had 20 or so as well. Not much else there for firearms that's for sure.

Pretty much a bust of a show for me.

Not unheard of to have multiple shows on a given weekend. I've seen as many as four in one weekend. Having two on the same weekend is almost common.

It was pretty slow - but the people who were there were there to buy a gun or beef jerky.

Everyone was pleasant to talk to, and quite a few regulars stopped by to say hi.

Mike and I just do it for fun and to fund the machine gun habit, I can't imagine trying to make a living doing it. The margins are just too thin on new firearms.
