Exchange Park in Ladson.

I'm planning on being there Saturday.

My wife asked, "Why are you going? You complained about it last time you went."

I said, "Yeah, but it's the only dance in town."


I've heard that the one at Jamil in Columbia is good. I'll have to watch for it.


ETA: Do you want to try to meet there? I'm not going to wear a rose for you to pick me out from the crowd!

Sure, but I think the rose is mandatory

I think I'm getting there around noon. I'll be helping disabled kids play baseball that morning.

I got the same speech from the wife and provided the same response.

I will be there.

I was thinking of how I could be easy to pick out of a crowd and decided on my red Hawaiian shirt with black flames.

That would make me easier to spot than if I wore woodland cammo BDUs with jerky hanging out of the pockets.

Sorry about the rose. I only do that for formal occasions.

I was planning on going in the morning. How long I stay is a big question mark, but I usually browse at a gun show a lot more than when I'm shopping for jeans.

I'm going to hit the Flowertown Diner in Summerville (on 78 just below Main St.) at about 0800 for breakfast in case anyone wants to join me for coffee.

went to the show. nice to talk to you again brohawk. didnt find anything i wanted so i ended up driving over to traders world. they had the CAI import imbel receiver fal ive been wanting for 500$. only ONE fal at the entire gunshow and it was also a CAI, but the guy wanted 900$ for it. so i brought home a new FAL from traders world. wasted 7$ to look at expensive crap again but oh well.


they did have 75 and 100 round chinese AK drums for only 100-150$ which is an ok price.

I wasn't even able to go. My car is acting up and none of my friends wanted to go

I have to agree with Legonas, if you didn't go, you didn't miss much.
