Sep 12-13 Austin (Old Target Bldg) 5505 S JH 35

Has anyone been to the gun show that is not at the crocket center? This one is apparently located down south.

Is it worth going to?

It sucks really bad, no joke. I went twice and will never get that time back. Sad part is I need some ak nick nacks and may go again.

I don't go to gunshows any more.

SHOT Show, hell yes.
Everything else is ghetto nonsense...

I went saturday it is a real waste of time and money. Their website says 600 tables I doubt if there were 60 pityful. I felt sorry for the venders it was so bad.

Ha, Thanks for the info. I actually told a friend who has never been to a gun show in Austin about it... Against my recommendation/your recommendations, he went anyways.

He called me 5 minutes after he left telling me how bad it was... :)

The only Austin gun shows I regularly attend are the SAXET gun shows.

There is one this weekend at the Crockett Center. I'll be there, FWIW. :P

SAXET in Austin is this weekend. note it is on N. Lamar just south of Braker at the Crockett Center. not to be confused with the south location which is another promoter.

Saturday 9-6
Sunday 9-5

I am going to try to go early Saturday morning. If you see a bearded 6'7" guy walking around holding a baby boy, come say hi.

Trip was a success. Picked up a RRA LPK for $69.99 and a magpul MIAD for $38.99. No smoking deals, but close to what I would pay online, plus no shipping. Now I need to put it all together.

Also blessed with a ten month old that behaved himself the whole time. Thank you lord.

I had a great time this weekend. I've never been to a bad SAXET show so far.
