Does it cost money to get in? Also is there enough eye candy for those of us without money to spend?

Powder was just above the order and wait three months price. I got little gun 1 pounders for 22 and 26. I understand that a local gun shop was ordering it for 25.

Large Pistol Primers were 40 for 1000....

The Alaska Gun Collectors Association usually lists these.

I passed. Tired of beef jerky vendors and seeing the same old Pre-64 model 70s going for $1800.

Yawn.

+1 When I see more "vendors" selling jerky, fishing trips, hunting trips, boat parts, etc. I just pass. Then toss in the usual gunshops in town and I really pass...if I wanted to see their inventory I'd go to their shop.

I have refused to enter that store for 7 years now stemming from a previous incident with those idiots

He has some nice people working for him, but between Ken and Jim, there's some serious dickage or douchage going on there.

It's very hard to deal with the Ken show at WWG. Couple years ago, I got a fascination with Gunbroker and bought 4 older hard top find collectible guns online over the course of a winter. Did the transfers through WWG because they were close to where I work and claimed they only wanted $25 per transfer. First deal went OK. Second deal got harder. Third deal they changed the rules completely. 4th deal they suddenly wanted more money for the transfer but after haggling agreed to "only" $25 because I was a repeat customer. Well I ain't no repeat customer any more. Went in there reluctantly with a buddy who was looking for ammo about 2 weeks ago. Nothing has changed, same BS spewing out out on everything. I think a big part of their success comes from customers outside who read about the co-pilot and other guns in all the gun rags but who have yet to meet the lead cutomer service rep in person who would likely change their mind about spending money there......
