We could have a ARFCOM meet in the parking lot, and walk around en masse to enjoy the crazy shit they pull on people.

I.E. That rifle will shoot helicopters out of the sky, or M855 is AP.

I want to be there for the replies from fellow ARFCOMMERS.

What do you all say?

Id be up for it.

I'm new about the Princeton gun show...What kind of stuff do they pull and who are they? dab2 in Q-town

We usually meet eachother at the M+A Parts tables. We stand around and drool till PAM tells us to spend some money or stop drooling.
The show is Saturday and Sunday the 28th and 29th.
I'll be there Saturday for sure and maybe Sunday also. I always need reloading supplies! I also always need more guns!!!!

Usually the Princeton is considered the best show in the central part of the state, excluding the Bloomington show.

I went to the E Peoria one, and it wasn't like the one they held at Expo Gardens, that's for sure.

What time on Saturday?

School. I'm trying to have more of a social life for a change as well.

All of that has left less time for arfcom cruising, sadly.

If there's food nearby, you guys might want to consider meeting up before hand for breakfast. It'll give you guys a chance to meet and greet and shoot the shit. Then again, maybe that's a WI crew thing

It was better than the last few Expo shows after the Peoria City Council started fucking with MGCA.....with the attendance they got in Feb, there should be even more dealers this time. Yet more business crossing the river.

Princton gun show is on the 28th & 29th, ok.
About how long of a drive is it to Princton say from Joliet?-
Where in Princton is the show being held and from what time to what time?

I will be wearing either an AR15.com hat and probably one of those W. German camo jackets from SG.

Hope to meet some hometown AR15'ers.

Thanks

Take Interstate 80 to Princeton. In downtown Princeton take US Route 6 west about a half mile. Look for the parking lot FULL of pickup trucks with NRA bumper stickers.

Well, there was a lot of stuff there. I wasn't impressed, but I was looking for ammo deals.

My friend commented on how there wasn't any .50 rifles there. Anybody see one?

Lone Wolf, this statement is now void:

Because I know you walked away with something worthwhile.

I got 10 used AR mags for half a benji.

Favorite quote of the show:

Hi, how much are these knives?

"Twenty dollars and I got automatics under the table for seventy."

Did your buddy ever get the paper work started on the 870?.

Those knives under the table looked like POS's , unless the more Tactical ones were under those.

Glad to see you check in from time to time so we know you're not dead.

Saw a CAI Yugo underfolder for 490 in the middle of the main room, wish I had 5 bills to spend on one. Also saw some sporterized Nagant M44's for like $150.

Sounds like everbuddy went yessidy. I drove up today, didn't find most of wut I'd hoped. Did manage to pick up some AR accessories. They guy in the back ran out of 45 ball even earlier this time :(. Didn't have any interesting auto-knife offers, but one of the female showgoers did keep giving me "that look".

Yeah... got paper work going. the guy is real close to home for me, so that makes it nicer to get it.
Yeah those knives didn't look that great. i leaned back while waiting with my shotgun and they didn't look special.

Glad I saw you there too. I had to confirm with Kalahinkid that it was you, but glad to see you were at the show.
