The Sweetwater TX, Rattlesnake Roundup Gun Show was this weekend.
It was my fist show that was incorporated into a major event like the roundup
The sheer volume of people that came in was just amazing and people generally were in a good mood and bought what they wanted.
I didn't get stuck next to a vendor playing a endless loop DVD about the newest concealed holster all weekend.
The organizers are actually organized and went out of the way to help dealers.
They sent a person by each table several times and offered to make a run to the concession stand for food and drinks
People seemed to have money to spend on items they wanted.
There were a few of the usual annoyances like the people who just pawed everything on your table with no intention of buying anything, but the good far outweighed the bad.
that is all
