I already posted this in the thread about the bladerunners show.
http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=8&f=14&t=255813

I will attend this show since I will never go back to the Bladerunners show.

Sorry for the repeat.

Nothing to be sorry for since it was in a thread about the Bladrunners show. I would love to see a large turn out at the new show instead of the what we have been getting used to at the old show. The more buzz the better. It would be nice to see a bunch of new dealers and buyers. Instead of the ones we are used to who are asking a arm and a leg for everything they have.

does anybody know how to get there? i know it's off rt28, do you get off the harmarville exit, of the springdale exit, and then drive on freeport road? don't want to waste time driving around trying to find the place when i could be creaming my panties while fondling guns

Anyone go today?

We went out about 8:45 and although it didn't start till 9am they were letting people in anyway. Nice show I liked it. You had more room to walk than in an ice rink. All I got was some connon fuse.

What was the admission price?

$5 to get in.

Since my discretionary fund has taken a recent hit, I won't be attending this first Shriner's show.

How was the diversity of vendors? Were the Nazi bauble sellers in force? Were pre-lock S&W revolvers still going through the roof?

Well this show to me was a bust. It was the typical over the top prices on just about everything and very little selection. Only 1 real person doing bulk ammo and his price was way high if you ask me. Almost $200 for 1,000 rounds. I have been to 3 shows this year in this area and this appears to be the norm now for these shows. A few years ago there was a ton of selection and prices worth paying. I may stop attending gun shows all together. I now I would not be the first person around here to do so.

I was pretty disappointed with the selection. If I wouldn't have had my girlfriend trailing along, I would have been out of there within about 10-15 minutes. Wish I could get my admission fee back.
I did end up buying a leather pocket holster for 5 bucks though, so at least I got something about of it.

Not bad. Not the usual fat smelling guys around. I picked up 2 1911 mags for $16. Still the in the wraper, black finish. They good just need to oil them.

i liked it, eventhough there were no dealers that had ammo cans or m1 garand parts. a lot of ar's, i allmost came home with dmps's 308 ar. i didn't fell like pissing off the wife. holly galco holsters
Link Posted: 2/21/2007 6:32:09 PM EST
I was there Sunday and thought it was OK. Nice selection of AR's and AR parts.

I got a laser for my Keltec from Marty and Gloria (the Galco people) and a roll pin to replace one I smashed while putting a Badger release on a charging handle.

For the first show at this location, I thought it was a good effort and I will be at the April show.

By the way, they told me that they plan to be processing Florida carry permit applications at the next show (fingerprints, notary, etc), which will be kinda neat.

Does anyone have a contact number for the couple that was selling the Galco holsters? i was reading the above post and realized that i need to get a Fla. permit so i can ccw my pistol in Az for an Executive Protection course i am taking in April. If i can get the info now i may be able to get my permit before i go.........

just go here and hit the scroll button in the pamphlet section and pick Concealed Weapon or Firearm Permit

fill out your info, you should get a envelope in about a week. fill out the form, get finger printed and get a copy of your accepted training requirement and mail it back. Make sure you don not bend or crease the finger print card or it will be rejected. When you mail it back put a piece of cardboard in the envelope so it doesn't get bent

just make sure you take my advice and do not get the finger print card bent, iut really will be rejected if it gets bent or creases in certain areas. Use cardboard in the envelope when sending back. Also if you have a small mail box and you mail man would normally fold the envelope to fit it in make sure you tell him that when he sees a large envelope to not fold it.

also you should have your permit in 50-60 days after they receive it.

good luck
