Anybody want to meet and greet?

Hopefully, the wife, baby and I will be there. Hopefully TNT will be there, since I need to buy some powder.

I heard they up the admission price to $12.00! Anything to it?

I actually will be coming back from NC on Saturday, so I might stop by.

I know the nation's gun show went to 12.00, but I have a hard time believing the showplace show is $12! Good night, for that price I could drive to see my folks and stop by a bunch of gun stores.

The C&E Website doesn't say one way or the other.

I was looking at going for the same reason, need some powder. I just went to the SGK show this weekend here in Hampton and met the owner of Quantico Arms, nice guy.
they had a good deal on some AR mags.

C&E's website says $7 entrance fee.


I'll be there on Sat.

TNT is hit or miss this time of the year. Better call them and make sure. I can never remember if it is the Dec or January show they usually miss.

I may go. Got 10,000 things to do around the house but that has never stopped me before.

I spoke with Tony from T&T today, they will be there, got an order in for some R15 and hopefully some Fed 210M primers.

Sounds good, I'm gonna try and make it.

The lunch at the Mexico is kinda my favorite part.

I won't be able to make this one.

However, if some of you are thinking about doing lunch with the ar15.com VA crew, do it!

Great bunch of folks, and a good time. I like eating at The Mexico as well.

Have fun.


Are you in this post-lunch picture?

Walmart any more if you are looking for 223.

J&C is showing a couple of 223 brands in stock.

I am sure they will be there.

Since I'm an Engineer, you know I still have that shirt I'm wearing in the picture.

Engineers never update their wardrobes.

I think I will have to take a rain check on lunch; I forgot the wife is out of town, so I have baby duty and noon is his nap time.

My better half was looking forward to seeing you, your wife and young one again. Darn!

Options...

The better half is riding along in the morning and is one heck of a baby sitter (we raised a girl too) if you want to meet us there, she will be more than happy to hang on to your young on while we do recon on the show floor (she asked about you, your wife and the baby actually.... and would rather tend a child than do the show). Then, we can all do lunch. Everyone wins!

Did you get his stash though?

Find out where his tragic boating accident happened by chance?

We'll miss you tomorrow.

So how was the show? Did I miss anything staying at home a setting out trees?

Link Posted: 12/1/2007 3:05:08 PM EDT
Heard my dad ran into a few of y'all.
Link Posted: 12/1/2007 3:09:32 PM EDT
They had Prvi go for $70-72/200 I bought up one, since it would have cost just a little bit more to have it shipped. Someone also had Igman SS109 for $85/200.

I also picked up some reloading gear, as well.

Yep, wish you could have been there.

Had lunch with Slim-Hazy, Tony-Ri, and Rumplestiltskin<sp> at the Mexico. Was very good.

I saw RobertM once in the show when I was buying some magazines, looked back at where he was after the salseperson took my money and Robert was gone. I never saw him again the whole show.

Dark Sun has Glock magazines for $15.00 each.

Canned heat was like $165.00 for 500.

Plenty of black rifles, AR's, PS90, Sig 556, you name it. Saw a DPMS stripped lower for $119.

The reloading guy was there.

All in all a good show IMHO.

Sorry I couldn't make lunch.

I saw several many AK's in the $300 range, but I don't know much about AK's, sorry.

I made it to the show for about an hour, and met up with the crew for lunch. It was good to see Minuteman419 again, put a face to Rmplstlskn, and meet Tony-Ri. We didn't really have enough guys for a photo op. I was there the same time as you RobertM, you should have come to lunch!

I picked up an HKS magazine speedloader for my new SiG P229R and bought a rubber duck AK47 from "Little Joe".

Need to Eat? Nah... I could go a long time on my reserves...

Glad I finally made it Mexico with a few VA crew... Ain't nothing better than talking AR's over good food with good people!

I walked away with a new tri-fold Medic bag, 3 more PMAGS, some strippers (the ammo type, if my wife sees this) and some other small stuff. Didn't sell my M4 barrel, but Slim-Hazy gave me the idea build it into an upper and sell it that way, which I did and sold it that day on EE.

I wish I had more money to spend there as I could have bought a BUIS, but the best deals are here on ARFCOM anyways...

Till next time...
