Is this a good show or what?

It typically is a good one to go to.
Usually a lot of vendors there. With this being the first one in Charlotte after the sunset I would expect it to be packed.
Hoping to be there my self in the morning.

How long of a drive is it from Greenville SC? I havent' been to a show since moving up here from GA.

It is the best show I've been to in this state. I 've noticed a lot of ads for it on the History Channel. Should be a good one.

Is anyone else going to be there on Sunday?

If you are looking for a complete gun, check out Classic Arms Inc. They are based out of Indian Trail, NC.

Not sure if they have parts or not. Try them, they usuall set up in building 1 on the left side, not on the wall, but in front of it.

Depending on what you're looking for, Del-Ton is great to deal with. They also support this site.
They're usually in the first of the two side buildings.

It wasn't too bad at all. Saw a lot of good prices on mags. One guy in the second building had about 30+ LEO restricted mags. $15 bucks a pop. I didn't think that was too bad. One guy had some used mags for $8.

The show had a lot of shoppers, but the deals were not there. Very small show compaired to what is normal, seems the dealers did not want to make any deals. The sticker prices were a liite on the high side and they were not moving from that price!

Did anybody check out the Sling Master table? I bought one.
