I'll probably go on sunday. Looking for ammo ( 7.56x51 and .22lr ) and a 6 pos collapsible w/ buffer for my AR build.

If anyone goes on Saturday, and status/condition report would really be appreciated.

I'm probably going to take my 12y/o son on Saturday afternoon. He's wanting to go look for some accessories.

I haven't been to a show since the "Obama effect" took hold - so I'm a little scared.

As long as I can keep my son interested in the sport, it's worth it.

Havent been to an asheville show, but if you havent been to a show since November here is what you can expect

1. crowds, large ones
2. lots of inflated prices
3. all the good deals and most of the things in demand (ammo in popular sizes, pmags) with anything approaching a reasonable price will be gone by lunch on saturday.
4. dealers spreading FUD

If you are looking for 5.56, don't bother. Guy selling 500 case of federal for $350, some LC brass reloads at $450 per thousand.

Stag Arms dealer there, pretty nice selection. Good selection of Bushmasters.

Guy with some black PMAGS at $20, some magpul grips and stocks.

Crowded.

Thanks for the report.

How was the line to get in? Went to the last one, got there at 2 pm on Saturday and the line was wrapped around the Civic Center.

I got there about 9:30 or so and it was wrapped around the corner there, but it moved pretty quickly. By the time I left there was no line.

Went today looking for an Vltor receiver extension. None to be found. I don't think I would bother going to that show again. Big croud and alot of junk. Only thing there where some spikes lowers around, but I bet they where in the rape level of price.

I went Sat. afternoon, not impressed. I got a stubby vert. grip and that is all. $800-$900 Cetme's what a joke. If your looking for a green laser, there is an Asian guy in the far back right corner that had 30mw lasers with the scope type adjustments for $125.
I'm good on ammo and mags so, I just went to see if there was anything I couldnt live without.
