Anyone going to the show at the Lake County Fairgrounds? I have to work saturday, but might go sunday.

I'll be there. Probably Saturday since Sunday is Mother's Day. Need mags, ammo & an AK sling.

Thinking about going on Saturday, it has been ok in the past. Looking for .233 ammo.

I had originally thought I would pass on this one, but on second thought I may try to get up there on Saturday.

I think I'm going to try to sell my 2002 LEGP.

Got a few mags & ammo. How about the idiot who had the rifles stolen from his truck.

This incident sounds fishy to me. Who in their right mind would leave $20,000 + worth of rifles on the seat of a vehicle parked in motel parking lot?? I would have taken them into room with me or would have taken them to Crown Point table display where they have security guards looking after the merchadise. This guy was a dealer and should know better!!

As I read the article I thouhgt it might have been the guy who kept saying "this ain't a museum they are for sale" Then I read that the guy whose rifles were stolen didn't attend the show Sat. I also only bought mags the only new ones I found.

I didn't make it there at all. Weather was pretty lousy sunday and there were tornado warnings in my area. Power went out, so the only thing I could do that didn't require electricty was resize and trim brass by lantern light!

I noticed that the price of 30 rd AK mags is creeping up. Unused mags were $15, junkers $12. However, English AR mags were only $20. Found only 1 USGI Adventureline mag. Wolf 7.62x39 ammo was noticably missing. Gander Mountain in Merrillville/Hobart has it for 1.99/20 rds-not bad at all. SAR-1's were $450+ at the gun show-can you believe that?

I personally thought everything was overpriced at that show but it's the first one I've been to in a while.

I didn't realize it until today, but it was Brian Allen from Sunset Weapons in Danville. He's a good guy. I don't know why he left all that stuff in his truck. I feel for him. I would hope he has insurance to cover those rifles, but that's some bad press that noone needs. He may not be aware of the area. I lived in merrillville for a while and it was just common knowledge that if you had to park at 'motel alley' that you didn't leave ANYTHING you cared about in your car.

too bad.
