What show is it?

My FIL and myself planned on attending -- the line to get in was about 100 yards long (no shit) and estimate of 350 people waiting -- we turned around and left.

The line was not moving fast -- and from prior experience on attending the show it does not move fast as they check what people are bring in.

A vendor I know says it was crowded inside -- but not a lot of buying from his table (more collectible -- not tactical)

I do not know about the vendors -- if you try later today or tomorrow it might be better to try to get in.

I was going to try to sell some Tangodown ARC mags I have extra -- might of had luck but just did not want to stand outside for 30-45 minutes (estimate) just to get in.

Kinda bummed that the organizer was not ready for the crowd and did not have a plan

-- one door entrance for people with guns to be checked

-- one door for people who just need to pay

And with the crowd that was outside it would of been packed inside.

I went. The line was only about 10 min when I got there around 1130.  There were more dealers there than usual however only a little over half had guns and ammo.  Others had cheap tac gear, books, doomsday food...etc.  One guy was selling twin city brass cased ammo 820 rounds for $425. Sold out about 10 min after I got there. Lots of 223 for 1.00 a round ...sickening.

I was there.   A lot of high priced AR's, of course.   People were crazy will any semi auto.  I saw a Mini 14 Stainless, asked the guy with it was he wanted for it.  $1200.00!!!!  For a Mini Fng 14.  Not only him but many others at the same level.

Got there about 11:30 today. No wait to get in although it was crowded inside. Lot of looking but not much buying as far as I could tell. Like the Airport Expo show the other week, most people walking out with what they came in with.

I went to also -- after yesterdays issue with the long line.

Alot of walking around -- did not see any buying -- heard stories of people wanting rediculous amounts for stuff, like $1200 for a Ruger Mini 14.

Alot of people taking their AR's out for a walk.
