I've never been (yet), but it sounds like a hell of a time.

Anyone from Tucson going?

You're going to enjoy yourself `Wilson, just bring lots (and lots more) money!

Cash and credit card

Using a credit card to buy firearms or large quantities of ammo automatically flags your account, signals the Feds and you're bumped up on the List-Of-Domestic-Terrorists-To-Be-Visited-When-You're-Least-Expecting

I've been doing that so long that if a few months pass without buying something, they get suspicious.
Link Posted: 11/30/2007 8:18:09 AM EDT
I'll be coming up from Tucson on Saturday morning, but most likely to peruse the wears, and not actually buy anything.
Link Posted: 11/30/2007 8:33:10 AM EDT
off to th show...


needed to set an island @ 44th and Osborn, illegal workers in my way.

oh well, we'll make the best of it.

We have midlength uppers for $475
and lightweight uppers for $425



Get some poster board draw a map to your table. and duct tape it to the main door way of the SAR building.



Great prices on the uppers!

Just got back from the gun show.

hock.gif hock.gif

The west most exhibit building had a few major venders...
POF, LMT, JT, Mad Dawg, Dynamic Armament, DPMS, Model 1, PWS, Arizona Expert Arms & Cold War Shooters among others. Young Manufacturing was in the south most building. Arizona Expert Arms had Lauer, POF, CMMG, Mega & Eagle AR10 stripped lowers although the Eagle AR10 lowers were pretty rough and prices were inflated. Mad Dawg had Eagle M15 lowers for $109 and RR lowers for $115. Specialized Armament has Colt AR-15A3 Tactical Carbine LEO marked stripped lowers for $399 and everything Colt under the sun.

I spent the majority of the day in the west building which had the majority of the AR-15 stuff. Dynamic Armament was in the east most building. Miwall & HSM were there as well.

That's my weather report. Rain? What rain?

Have fun tomorrow! hinking.gif

edit: Changed Advanced Aramament to Dynamic Armament.

Wait Advanced Armament was there, weird that they dint make it into the "proper" building...

I was mostly in the SAR building. As far east that I made it was the J&G table's.

Unless you consistently have a table/tables with Crossroads, you are always going to get screwed like this. Just because you are a gun dealer, doesn't mean you end up in a building full of other gun people. Their system depends on "seniority" more than anything else, unless you get very lucky.

When I used to have a table at the Crossroads shows, I started out at the back of the W green/yellow building (where Miwall's other indoor setup is). As I continued, and other companies dropped off, I slowly moved "east", ending up near the middle of that building.

The SAR show is a completely different company to sign up with. If one is only going to do the SAR show each year, you might be better off IN the SAR building instead of the crappy building nobody wants to go to because all they see when they go in are fucking Christmas ornaments and jewelry.
