I thought I'd throw it out there for you. I am thinking about doing this show as there hasn't been a good show in Spartanburg that I can remember. I've talked to this guy a couple of times and this isn't his first rodeo. I think he came out of retirement?

Yeah...I know he didn't spell Spartanburg correctly...

Thoughts?

Looks like the dates about right for a new years resolution purchase

Yeah we'll be there I hope. Grand opening of our new store is slated for Jan 9th in Greer. Spartanburg is just too close to Greer for us to not show up..

Anybody else going? I was going to take a pass and sit this one out but if he's actually got some advertising out there this one might just work?

Darrell Did you set up today? How's it look? Is it worth the drive from G' Vegas?

I don't know what to say about this show? I mean I didn't really set up (I got there late and I had to haul ass) so I basically just dropped my stuff and took off (date night w/the other half). I heard from other folks that they saw some advertising for this venue and that's what sold me on it.

The show promoter (www.gunrunnershows.com) says there are 180 tables, but I think it's more like 150 tables. It's a small show, that's for sure, but sometimes small shows have some hidden gems to be discovered? While I was there (all 30 mins of it) I didn't see one vendor that I knew and there were plenty of people I've never seen before.

As you enter the show take a left and I am the 2nd vendor on the left. TONS of Mosin Nagants, ammo, & accessories. We will have some Tokarev's, p64's, cz82's, p1's, and a minty stainless PPK.

Is anybody else going or setting up?

Well I met some ARFCOM guys today (way cool)! Standing room only - man was it packed most of the day. We sold out just before closing but we'll be bringing more milsurps tomorrow!

The promoter's wife said around 2000 folks paid to get in. Not too bad considering there were less than 100 tables. A nice small venue..

Good meeting you SCWolverine & southernrebel!!

UPDATE: She said there were about 80 tables..
