The steak house in the Hilton itself is quite good, although perhaps a bit pricey. Check out the menu while you're at the show.

Bought 6k rounds of ammo at a great price. Only saw 1 NFA violation, (check out the SOG armory booth). Overall a good show with what seems to be a good turnout. If anyone wants to meet an incredible gunsmith check out Gene Shuey.

I went yesterday and nothing...no AKs at all. Im sitting there at a table with my buddy todayand an old guy walks up and sold a pistol to the guy next to us...he lays this AK down and I noticed its a .223 Norinco preban.......I had just ordered a WASR3 in .223. from AIM. Old guys AK was in great shape...he said about 20 orounds were shot thru iot. Well I ask him how much and he says $425.00...I borrowed the money from my buddy and got the gun...no way was I letting this go by. Gun is a lot nicer than my pics make it look. Hey Ron.....didnt think I would ever be able to replace my .223....cant believe I got one at such a great price.

I walked in the downstairs door by the pool with an M4 on my shoulder. A group of Kalifornicators were waiting outside... they all started laughing after I past and one goes ooooookaaaaaay. Gotta love it.

I typically walk in through the side entrance where the bus depot is located. Typically I have something exotic slung over my shoulder. The few wide eyed looks I get always makes it worth while.

It's truly amazing how many people don't seem to notice anything amiss though...even when I walk through the casino.

I've gone thru the casino many times with an AR or FAL on my shoulder. I always expect some liberal gal to start screaming hysterically, but you are right in that usually nobody seems to notice/react.
