I'll be in Houston this weekend. Can you give me directions to the Pasadena Show?
Link Posted: 1/30/2006 4:33:01 PM EDT
take 45 south to beltway 8 toll road.
east on the beltway and get off at the first exit. (or pay the 1.25 toll)
drive along the feeder or take the Fairmont parkway exit.
Turn right on to Fairmont (east)
Drive east for a few miles and it’s on your right.

I am looking for a good new/used EOTech or Aimpoint. Do you think a good number of vendors will have what I am looking for?

You may be less expensive piece by piece, but cumulatively, I've gone nearly broke buying all this stuff from you! Which reminds me, I should post a pic of my most recent AR with the fancy RRA upper w/quad rail I got from you. I'm ordering a nice little Gen III NV to put atop it.. then I'll be ready to impress..

See you at the show.

I sure hope to see some stag loweres, Vltor stocks and Arms systems there. Id rather buy from a local dealer or person than over the web. It is nice to hold something and check it out with your hands and eyes than make a decision. Well, I guess im gonna be eating beans and rice for the next 2 weeks if I see the things that are on my want llist!!!!!!!!! See you guys there!! Ill be wearing my "Babycat" T-shirt, so say Hey!

I went today. I've never seen the Pasadena show so packed. Bachman's had a 15-20 minute wait to fill out 4473's, and they had four people doing it at once!

I picked up abrand new CZ83 of at least it looks almost new for $250. The gun only came with on crappy after market mag though. Sunday was not quite as crowded I guess.

This was my first time in the Houston area. I was able to sneak out from my son's chess tournament on Saturday. "hk940" thanks for the directions. I had no problem finding the place. Going back to Downtown Houston was another story. I had to take a couple of detours. I ended going to the Port of Houston and doing a U Turn after going over the bridge but it was worth it.

The show was crowded but I managed to find 2 Colt AR15 9mm 32 rounders for $ 85 for both and some parts/tools for my M1 Carbine. I also found factory Glock 19 mags for $12.50 and NIW AR 15 30 rounders for $10. I probably could have found more deals if I was not in a hurry.

I was dragging my wife to the show with me on Saturday and the parking lot was jammed packed by
9 am. We never made it in the door.
