I will be standing in line at 0900. Anyone want to say hello? We could get together and get some of the $6 burgers and $4 drinks. One thing at least, AGCA has very little jerky and jewelry, almost all gun related.

yup, the AGCA prides itself on being restrictive on non gun stuff.
Link Posted: 7/1/2003 7:31:24 PM EDT
I thought the deer show was the 12th and 13th and the gun show was the 19th & 20th, am I wrong??
Link Posted: 7/2/2003 3:24:30 AM EDT
According to my "ohfishul" AGCA schedule, it is the 12th &13th

Oh well, guess I was wrong, sorry, out of date info.

Thanks Confederate, I was ready to go down on the 12/13 dates. I have a letter from the AGCA that states their show is 12&13 July.

Dang, I'll be at the beach & won't make it to this one. Y'all pick over all the USGI magazines for me now, you hear?
Link Posted: 7/9/2003 5:36:49 PM EDT
Just got conformation from my AGCA contact, 19th and 20th.

Ill be around sat morning and Sun afternoon for sure, possibily more.

Just look for the TALL guy in the red AGCA shirt (I get to help the dealers cart their stuff in.)

Ill try to report on what I see friday night
Link Posted: 7/13/2003 5:53:15 PM EDT
looks like I will be able to make it to the show unless something comes up at the last minute. Is this show pretty good size? I know the last show I was at in Birmingham (May was the last one if I remember right) was a small show. But then it wasn't put on by AGCA. Also how is the show for finding receivers (AK, FAL, AR-15) and other gun parts? THanks for any help.
Link Posted: 7/14/2003 3:28:41 AM EDT
Anyone want to meet up for Breakfast before the show?
Link Posted: 7/14/2003 3:35:05 AM EDT
what time would you want to meet? I would just have to adjust the time I leave to get there on time. Also what restaurant?
Link Posted: 7/14/2003 4:46:15 AM EDT
I have a change in plans! This Saturday, 19 July I am leaving to go pick up my grandson for his first visit with granddad and gramma alone. He and I will be at the show on Sunday morning when the doors open. He loves guns and shooting as well as flying in helicopters, so he naturally loves being with granddad.

I dont really know what is around there, is there a cracker barrel close, anyone? anyone?

closest cracker barrel is back on 65 heading south to montgomery. Now what exit number is that...??? I am not sure if there is one closer, but the one I am thinking of is about 8-10 miles from the civic center. Hopefully someone will know which one I am thinking of and can correct me if there is a closer one.

edit: for I-65 there is one at exit 246 and one at exit 271. 246 is near pelham, exit 271 being near gardendale. (thanks to the cracker barrel website)
Link Posted: 7/17/2003 4:59:20 PM EDT
Ill see you guys at the show, I gotta be there early to help dealers set up.

When you guys get to the show, please try to find me, I want to meet some of yall.

Ill be the big tall guy in the red AGCA shirt that is too tight (its the biggest they got, but not big enough)
Link Posted: 7/17/2003 5:51:40 PM EDT
so who all wants to meet at cracker barrel for breakfast before the show, and which cracker barrel would be better (pelham or gardendale)? Figure we should decide before saturday morning, lol.
Link Posted: 7/17/2003 7:13:43 PM EDT
I am coming in from the north, so exit 271 is great for me. Post an OK, and we will be there!!

What time, and what day? Sunday is better for me, but I can go sat too...
Link Posted: 7/18/2003 6:23:17 AM EDT
Saturday works best for me. If i miss church on Sunday for a gun show my wife would kick my butt, lol. Anyways...Does Saturday around 8:30-8:45 sound good? Exit 271 cracker barrel right? Where does everyone want to meet, in the parking lot before going inside? If we can agree on the day and time I can IM my cell number to you.

I am also thinking of bringing some stuff for trading at the show, is anyone else?

Link Posted: 7/18/2003 12:22:36 PM EDT
How about the 0830 time stated Sundy morning, in the parking lot at the Cracker Barrel at exit 271. I will be in a green extended cab Chevy truck with a bed cover on it.

Link Posted: 7/18/2003 4:59:46 PM EDT
I'm going to pass on the breakfast thing seeing that I can't make it sunday. I will hopefully be able to do the Aug 9th shoot for Mike's Bday and can see you all there. I would love to do the sunday thing, but my wife likes to have church be a family deal.
Link Posted: 7/18/2003 6:45:21 PM EDT
Hey, if you guys come sunday, Ill only be there in the afternoon.

Was helping set up tonight, saw lots of ammo, LOTS of ammo. Several major ammo dealers.
There may be some Used USGI 30s for bout $16-$18 if I remember right. Lots of mags and Parts, At least one major AR parts supplier, the obligatory gunsafe dealer, and a couple of reloading guys.

Link Posted: 7/18/2003 6:51:59 PM EDT
was there anyone selling ar, ak, or fal receivers? And did ammo prices look good from what you noticed?
Link Posted: 7/19/2003 2:57:26 AM EDT
Exit 271 = Gardendale? I probably won't do the gun show, but I just might make the breakfast.

I couldnt tell prices, I just had to carry stuff in. And I didnt see any AK of FAL recievers, but I didnt see much stuff, mainly boxes of stuff. I did see some AR recievers, both stripped (I think) and complete lowers (Iknow that for a fact.)


Day 1--- I saw no FAL or AK recievers. There were lots of complete guns, but no recievers.
I did see on Beta C mag for $375, and it was a preban. I wish I had some more money!
Link Posted: 7/20/2003 3:41:13 AM EDT
OK, my grandson is up and dressed and ready to go!! We are leaving for the Cracker Barrel about 0700 and should be there by 0815 or so.

Link Posted: 7/20/2003 3:45:29 AM EDT
The show looked pretty good Saturday. RPB wasn't there which was a bummer for me, but there were lots of AR items and a fair amount of SAR1's. Ammo and MAgs looked plentiful. Hope you all find what you need.
Link Posted: 7/20/2003 2:10:44 PM EDT
Sniper, What do you need? I stock a number of items for AR15/M16, as well as a number of other weapons. I have some great C-3 Mag loaders for the AR 7.62X39, new in the box and unopened. I just got some M-4 7 position stocks in and they are great. Let me know if you need anything.

Hey guys!! Breakfast was great at the Cracker Barrel, sorry you missed us. I had two of the calender girls from Liddys calender with me and they were very disappointed to have missed y'all. Oh well maybe next time, I just love those TINY LITTLE outfits they wear!!

Tony G
Link Posted: 7/20/2003 3:13:02 PM EDT
no one showed up for breakfast? What did the calender girls look like hinking.gif? What I am looking for that I didn't see at the show was an AR-7 .22LR. I am getting one from another board member on Saturday (if all goes well) but would like to get a second one also. Also I am looking for FAL receiver and AK receiver. Once I get my FAL and AK projects finished then I will finally do an AR15. If anyone can help that would be great.

Hey Notso , I bought that Beta mag!!! Best deal I've ever gotten at a Gun Show! Was that you I was talking too while I was buying it?? They also had pre-ban NIW Center 30 rounders for $20 each, but by time I paid for the Beta mag and the 3 dollar coke I only had twelve bucks left.
Link Posted: 7/20/2003 5:33:53 PM EDT
I'm sorry i missed breakfast!

I had to take care of the little one this morning and just couldnt get going...

Wish to hell I had enough money for a Beta mag... I was one for 800 at another table, i guess that guy really wanted to sell his!

Any way hope you guys all make it to the FOP shoot on Aug 9.
