I'll be there... spent way too much the last few times I went so I'm going to try not to bring too much $$$ this time... (cash machine right in the building doesn't help)

I want to but I'm not sure I'm going to get to. I always miss the better shows! [:(!]

I might just head out there, I'm in Jacksonville, so it's not too far away. The local shows suck, is this one good? I need to pick up some mags, and ammo would be good too!

Going. First weekend had off in a year and been wanting to see the LAkeland show for a while. Is it at the Lakeland Civic Center?

It's a good show and is located at the civic center.

Sometimes... if they occupy the main show floor, expect a rather large show, but a lot of the ones lately are taking place at Fairgrounds, it's show floor is about 1/2 the size of the Prime. I work 99% of the weekends, so I never get to go to anymore, so I take what I can get, but I went to a fairgrounds show a couple of weeks ago, and it was a total pile of ass.

This is the LAKELAND GUN CLUB SHOW one of two a year and imo the best show in Florida.

Wish I could go but I moved from Orlando a couple months ago to West Virginia. oops I mean Fernandina Beach.

I made the mistake of stopping in at the Ocala show last weekend (2 weekends ago?) and man did it suck... I was on my back from the Ocala range and thought "what the heck"... Hell, I own more stuff than they had at the whole show! If any of you guys go to the Ocala show and think that's what a gun show is about take the trip to Lakeland this weekend.

I was at the one a couple of months ago, man does it hurt to pay $5 for that awful, pitiful, near worthless*, disgusting, embarassing, disgraceful gun show. [puke] * Ammo/reloading guy was there, he was the only decent person/table there.

I'll be there saturday. Watch for the handsome man in the Corvette T shirt talking to rikwriter. Say hello, I'll let you buy me a $3 diet coke..

I usually go to the Central Florida shows and thought about going to the Lakeland show to get a little variety, but found out its about 90 minutes from the east coast. BTW, how are the Lakeland shows compared to the Central Florida shows? If its that much better I just may make the trip.

I'll be there on sunday morning, if anyone else is going sunday, let me know and we can meet up ! And for those of you that don't know, this show is the best with 500-600 tables just full of good stuff to spend your money on. Even Gunsmoke Enterprises was at the last one. I like going on Sunday so you can get the deals everyone's making to get rid of everything.
Link Posted: 4/20/2001 10:22:01 AM EDT
Come on guys, someone has to be going on sunday !?
Link Posted: 4/20/2001 11:12:03 AM EDT
I bought a postban from Gunsmoke at the Lakeland show last time around... was too cheap to pass up. Not like I need another AR... I also licked out and stumbled upon a guy that was getting rid of everything for 50% off of his marked prices... I asked for Mini14 mags and he had a dozen NIW PMI's marked $20 each in a box under the table! I bought all 12 for $100. Can't beat that... Don't forget to check out FAT (Florida Ammo Traders). Phil always has very fair prices on everything.
