Kettle corn causes stains only when eaten by the amateur and untrained. Leave the maize consumption to the professionals.

what i found out about gun shows. is since they don't know you like the guy where you buy(like about 1,000 last year or so) you are just a new shill. buy something any thing maybee a 5.00 ak 4 mag pouch have them put it in a plastic bag. carry that with you. i allways go straight out and buy a 3.00 ammo can to carry with me to put all my goodies in . they see you are a buyer,a player one who is and will buy. the prices auto go down.. try it youll like it///..

"Ain't people fun?" Gunshows are funny places, very polite at one side and absolute brain dead self-centered pigs on the other. Your rants are right on Grasshopper: -Don't bring a damn stroller to a gun show, the aisles are too narrow. Tell your wife to watch the kid for the 2 hours you'll be there, don't wimp out. It's not quality time for the kid and don't put up with the wifely blackmail. -Camo is a wanna-be insignia. The guys who really wore it in the military don't wear it now (Army...18 months in Vietnam). Just like they don't go to the range wearing Jungle boots, carrying Rambo knives and having an over the shoulder waist level shooting sling. -It's fun "fighting" a bunch of kids and bunches of guys visiting and chewing the fat in front of the tables. Manners say "get out of the way or shop" -Guys with a "for sale" sign stuck in the rifle barrel are a danger. Those things swing around, threatening to poke your eye out...Bad prices too! -Naziland...the gun show at Pikesville Armory in Maryland is basically a Nazi memorabilia show, what a waste and what's that got to do with guns (this also includes: Beanie Baby dealers, crystal jewelry, eyeglass polishing compounds, jerkey and hot sauce dealers). Some gunshows are more yard sale than guns. -Know it alls...they really annoy those of us that do. There is a high BS and ignorance level at gun shows (well, gunshops too!) Still, I go to gunshows if they're close enough, rarely buy guns though, the prices usually are too high...but they're still fun.
