This is the official Role Call for the Wanenmacher's Tulsa Arms Show (backbencher has prior engagements, and asked me to post the official thread).

If you need to contact the OP, please use ARFCOM IM.

Wanenmacher Pro Tips
Wear comfortable footwear, there is almost 6 miles of tables.
Purchase advance tickets to avoid lines and delays.
Plan on being at the show as long as possible (example 8AM to 5PM on Saturday, and 8AM to 3 PM on Sunday if you want to cover it all. That will average just under 14 seconds per table.
There will be some excellent "state fair" type of food booths to be able to buy a decent lunch, but they are not cheap.
Book your hotel early for best rates, IM the OP if you are unsure what part of town.
Bring a backpack if you plan on purchasing much. (Also, OP will offer under table stash space at my vendor location [7C] for ARFCOM members).
If you purchase bulk ammo, OP has a loaner cart.
Bring lots of cash. Most of the great deals will be small vendors that only deal in cash and the ATM lines can get long.
OP will have free chilled bottled water and cooler space if you bring your own drinks/snacks.

Went last fall. Very dissappointing. The vendors trade amongst themselves the day before. Lots of overpriced crap. If you're collecting anything of quality or rarity, look elsewhere. Numerous empty tables. Won't be returning.

I'll be there. It'll be my first.

Sorry the show didn't work for you, but this is is pretty much the exact opposite of most people's experience. There were several arfcom members last show that made some awesome purchases.

That being said, the Spring show is always busier than the Fall show.

I guess it all depends on what you’re collecting.  I didn’t see many beanie babies at the show I attended, either.

Collectibles availability diminish as time goes but that’s normal.  I did see things at the show I attended that I knew I would never see at a show again.  Many times, they were priced accordingly.

Bring lots of cash and brush up on your negotiating skills..

Is dinner at Smoke on Cherry St? Or some other Smoke?

Edited to add: ok I see now. Smoke Woodfire Grill is the actual name. I’ve always heard it referred to as Smoke on Cherry.

Cool story bro, but I did the finish plumbing on that place a few years ago when the other company no showed and they hired me on Friday night and told me I had to be done by Monday morning……. That bill was expensive.

I am looking for a new poncho liner, a backpack, and maybe one of the large practice drop bombs. Is there a large amount of military gear like that at this show or is it actually all firearms?

You will find plenty of options (maybe limited inventory on the practice drop bombs ) but plenty of choices on the others.

It's a steakhouse.  You have to wear more than a thong & flipflops.
