I can't take it anymore, I MUST go to a show this weekend. I am coming from the Cleveland area and need directions. Will be taking I-480. Any information or links would be greatly appreciated.

71 South to Columbus, to 270 (outerbelt). Take 270 West until you hit West Broad Street. Take that street to the East (left side of 270). First traffic light under the overpass is the Westland Mall. Follow the gun show signs to the rear of the mall where the J.C. Penneys is. That's it.

Oh, and look for me there, I'll be the guy buying up all the cool stuff.

Travel time from Cleveland I'd put at 2.5 to 3 hours, depending on traffic and the weight of your right foot.

hmmm. 2.5 - 3hrs.

I should be there in about 2 hrs. tops....yes, I do have a jet engine hidden under the 4cylinder in my Honda Civic Ex.


Thanks for the info.

Thanks again.

msokol13, do a mapquest or the like for

4411 west broad street columbus ohio 43228

That is the Sears store 30 yards away from the old J.C. Penneys store where the show will be.

That'll get you formal directions. Not that there was anything wrong with the ones given already....

Yup, probably get there around 10, got a couple buddies from another board I'll be travelling over with, then we're gonna test the range afterwards. If you're not doing anything, you're welcome to join us, or if nothing else grab some chow after the show.

thatmguy, yeah I'll be there with Paradiggum. He still hasn't been able to talk me into a Busse yet, but not for lack of trying. They're damn cool knives but for some reason every spare $250 I have ends up in guns or crates of ammo.

I looked it up, I believe that it is exit 7 on 270.

I sure hope this is a good show, anyone know how they compare to the Medina or Berea gun shows??

Last Medina gun show I went to was pathetic, I was pissed that I drove an hour let alone 3

Kind of subjective, but I think the PRO show at Westland is a good one. Nice venue, some good dealers, and once and a while a great deal. I've been to Medina, and while it was bigger I saw nothing worth paying for.

A lot of times the foot traffic at Westland has some good deals walking around, I've nabbed quite a few guns from spectators at the Columbus show.

What will make or break the Cols. show tomorrow will be if dealers opt for Goodman's in Dayton instead. Last time around only 1 or 2 dealers did, but then we had an overzealous tax agent causing trouble down here so it might chase out some dealers. Will have to see.

If you want to make the trip worth doing, you can always hit Vance's or Buckeye Outdoors while you're down here if the Westland show disappoints, both quality gun stores with good prices.

I might do that, I will be bringing my glock 22 with night sights. I want to swap it out for a 9mm AR upper.

Yes, it is #7. It is the next exit after you pass 70 which is exit #8.

thatmguy,

Nice talking to you at the Westland show today. I was there with my two sons drooling over the Rat-weiler. I'm gonna get one of those soon, I promise I'll call you first!

Regards,

Chris

I hope you didn't waste your time.

I did. At least I met one AR15.com member, thatmguy. Also got a kick out of seeing "crazy surplus guy." He cracks me up every time. For a minute I thought I was at a dog show, dogs running all over the place.

Same here, that dude definitely doesn't seem stable.

I was wondering about all the dogs too. Saw some dude with a HUGE Husky. WTF???

Yes, it was good to meet some fellow arfcommers.

Yep, a lot of dogs. Wonder if I can pull the legitamate allergy/asthma card and get them to stop allowing them in???

Yes, that surplus guy is quite a spectical. If you wanna put a dollar in the nickel slot, start him on the Catholic church and child abuse issue. Woohoo, hold on tight....

Amazing that the attendees complain no deals, and a lot of the dealers complained no one was spending any money.

Ah, 'tis a vicious circle.
