Made it on time.  Wearing my light grey Unicorn tshirt under my jacket.

Didn't quite see the entire show.  HiPoint carbines are down to $250-260.  Lowers down to $55 - though Cabella's has em for $50.

I got the guy to 50 on the lower and the lpk was 45.

It was good to meet you, Motown Steve and ..Cramper? Good to see Ben again also.

Thanks again for lunch.

Went today and there was a pretty big crowd. I had to burn up some Visa gift cards on a Magpul stock for a Mossberg 500 and some accessories.  The vendor that had them was having trouble with his CC machine and told me he'd be at Ft Worth in two weeks. Okay then.

One thing is for sure, I've never seen so many people walking dogs in a gun show. Not those in "Service Dog" vests, just dogs that apparently can't be left alone in their homes while their owners go to a gun show with cramped and crowded aisles.

There's one legit service dog @ the local gunshows - the owner's in a wheelchair.  I some some tall black dude walking around w/ a big "service" dog and a "service" puppy.  People will be walking around w/ "service" geese next.  @DK-Prof

I saw a 6' blonde in Stiletto pumps at the Dallas Galleria Mall pushing a Bichon around in baby stroller with the netting. She probably had enough of her ex-husband's money to buy and sell you and me both, so I guess no one cared.

I'm in Austin this weekend.

I am going to stop at the gunshow with my sister and BIL to get a set of night sights to put on my Glock 19. I don't know how long we're going to be there, or what time, but I'll text you when we get there. I am taking them shooting on Sunday.

Will text you when we're heading there.  Taking the boy for a bit, and the missus to look @ CC purses.  If she tries to weasel out I'll tell her I'm going to look @ motorcycles.  

Won't do me any good.  She's told me I can look all I want, but I don't get to ride one again.

I may have to make it to the FW Gun Show this weekend.  
Pick up a couple lowers
Link Posted: 2/8/2018 5:15:37 PM EDT
Lowest price I saw @ Big Town a couple of weeks ago was $50.

I'm in. Window shopping for a suppressor for a Ruger tactical, my first. Any suggestions for a vendor?

Silencer Shop.

They have kiosks in partner gun shops around Dallas where you can take your fingerprints yourself, and they have an app that will let you create and upload your passport photos. You don't have to set foot inside a police station.

And, once they have your stuff on file, it's good for two years, so you can buy more suppressors without having to get fingerprinted again or take another photo.

Sounds like I'm going Saturday and Sunday.  May have friends over from Garland Saturday, taking a local friend Sunday.
Link Posted: 2/9/2018 9:23:33 AM EDT
Work has been slow so I have budget cuts right now.

Doesn't mean you can't look.  I promise your other guns won't get jealous.

I might go to Fort Worth.
Link Posted: 2/10/2018 1:51:08 PM EDT
I should be there this afternoon.  Also going tomorrow afternoon with a friend.
Link Posted: 2/10/2018 7:48:24 PM EDT
I haven't been to a show in quite awhile so I went today.  Was pretty crowded.  Had to park on the 4th floor of the parking garage! Was a long way to lug back 500rds of 230gr 45 and 500rds of 115gr 9mm!
Link Posted: 2/10/2018 9:00:29 PM EDT
I feel your pain. I lugged 1000 230gr bullets a couple of blocks one time and it was painful. No handle and no easy way to hold onto the box.  

Party of the problem today i think was related to the stock show but there was a good crowd for the gun show.
Link Posted: 2/10/2018 9:11:00 PM EDT
The ARFCOM store is there.  Walked about half the show this afternoon but didn't see any cheap lowers.  Even HiPoint carbines were high.  Did see a brand new Ruger PCC and a Gen 5 26.  Should be back tomorrow afternoon unless we ice up tonight.
Link Posted: 2/11/2018 10:35:48 PM EDT
Finally found $50 lowers on the eastern side of the show.  I'll post up next week's shows shortly.  Anyone hit Gainsville, Greenville, Hillsboro, or Nacaodoches?

Well, looks like I'll be hitting the Mesquite Rodeo show this weekend after all.  Smaller show - perhaps Saturday afternoon.

@DeathHates
@BIgDAM
@subnet
@75149

Will probably be there after lunch, so don't know that I can make Soulman's BBQ.  Y'all are welcome to, however.

ETA:  Let's throw the preacher & her husband under the gun show bus - besides, I want to see his fancy new Ruger:

Ok, you go and text me where all the white wemin bargains at.  I'll follow up after lunch.

If I make Mesquite it will Sunday, but Im thinking I won't.
Link Posted: 2/16/2018 8:54:29 PM EDT
Our plan is to get there after lunch Saturday.
Link Posted: 2/16/2018 8:57:11 PM EDT
Because no one cares if people work weekends anymore.

Link Posted: 2/16/2018 9:03:45 PM EDT
I haz a 3 day weekend.  Might hit Legoland Monday - maybe Sunday.

It's why I switched to weekend nights from days.  If I REALLY want to do something, I can.  It's easier on Saturday because Friday is my one night off.

Soulman's BBQ in Mesquite for lunch, then show.  Enroute.
Link Posted: 2/17/2018 11:31:44 PM EDT
Small but good show.  HiPoint carbines - my price bellweather - were over $300, signifying a high priced show.  However, found a DetTron AR for $400, so go figure.

The steal of the day was $50 for a Ruger 22/45 receiver, heavy target bbl, & high target sights.  I could barely get my wallet out fast enough.
Link Posted: 2/17/2018 11:49:04 PM EDT
I had some Christmas gift cards to burn and picked up a Magpul stock for my shotgun, a couple of Glock mags, and a wallet. I'm guessing some of those vendors have a very good weekend.
