Hey guys went out to BT this morning, not many people there at all so you can find parking easily.

First time I have seen it that unattended.

Good deal with 5 dollar admin with Matt's mailer though.

About 75% full with vendors, the other west side of the place was blocked off.

Most of the regular guys were there.

I picked up a nice tac light for my 20" pic rail for $20.00 and a few boxes of Federal matched 168grn .308
for $10 a piece.

It was easy to get around and deal since there wasnt as many folks as usual.

I couldn't get there today but will try to go tomorrow. Lower than normal attendance is probably to be somewhat expected since there's been very little time to get the word out to the public. But we need to give the promoter a big hand for pulling it together at the last minute, and also for trying to put on a good show every time. Probably a good weekend to get some deals from exhibitors, with fewer people attending.

Saw those, pretty beat up and that cheap aluminum..there were some new ones for 12 a piece now.

I like the USGI black anadized ones, they stand up longer to wear and tear and less of beating on the mag well of the receiver.

The attendance was not great, and I have not broken even yet. The difference in the crowd was they were BUYING. I have not talked to one vendor/dealer that hasn't done well so far. One guy came to the office at noon yesterday, thanked us and told us he could leave now and still have made good money.

There are several dealers out there with great deals.

An unusual show for Bigtown. For the first time, parking is not an issue, and there is room to walk inside.

To those who came out, THANKS. I really appreciate the support. I appears that several of you guys got some good deals.
