OK, just got back. Eek. There was ONE gun there that I wanted (SVT40 for $425) but someone got to it first. Everything else was either over-priced ($156 for 260rd of Lake City 30.06 ) or a rusted hulk.

Almost every table was priced with suckers in mind.

eta: If I am going to pay retail prices for ammo, I'd rather give my money to Bill at the Powderhorn (where I am going now).

Yeah man, Bill is a pretty good guy. His ammo prices are a little high but his gun prices are pretty dam good and hard to beat on some things.

Yeah. I was shocked when I went in for .30 carbine and found it to be $4.50/box more expensive than online retailers. I don't mind paying 20% more in order to support my local shop, but 50% more?

Greetings from Maine....

Barre is my home town and I worked at the Barre city auditorium for many years...used to go to every gunshow..and was able to shoot the shit with vendors before and after the doors were open. Wish I had seen this before today, I would have made a trip home...

If anyone is up in this neck of the woods , look me up and we'll go shooting....

It wasnt my company but it was probably another company.

I went to the show, not many good deals but I picked up a few mags for my ar15....
Link Posted: 2/6/2006 6:03:35 AM EDT
Fellas,

I thought it was a decent show.
Plus one for Powderhorn, though. Fair prices. Great selection.
I base all shows against the Harrisburg, PA shows w/ 1500 tables.
This website allows us to know which prices are for suckers.
The following items were not.
I saw a NIB Beta mag for $200.
There was a Beretta PX4 under $500.
The action was smooth as glass.
(Comparable to my well-worn 92)
They've done a lot of work since the Cougar.
I picked up a Ciener 22 kit w/ spare mag for $200.
I found a used Mil Contract predecessor to the Tasco SS scope for $100.
I had to get it. It had a side focus instead of the front bell.
I boxed it at 50 yards and was very pleased.
The Mrs. preapproved the items I got as the Christmas tree was meager this year.
We all need to shoot together sometime.

True enough.

Crap. My problem is that I end up going to look for firearms (C&Rs mostly). I never look for parts, etc because I just assume that I can find them online for a good price. I need to start paying better attention...

Agreed!

Big time agree with the need to shoot together sometime. I'm always looking for shooting buddies. Perhaps we can get something rolling in the spring.

Who the hell is your drill?! LoL, shit we couldn't even get walking leave my freshman year and you guys are allowed to go to a gun show? Careful who see's those AR mags, some people here don't appreciate that and will get you in trouble for having gun parts or claim you stole them from the Army department.

I just moved here from NC, and that was the 2nd worse gun show I have ever been to. I didn't see much for deals on anything. I met some guys from IPSC though, which was kinda cool because I have been looking for the comp shooting around here.

I saw their "booth" but I didn't stop because it was packed. Where do they have competitions? I'd love to find out if there are any IDPA matches around.

I got a list from him, but I don't have it on me, I'm at work now. But he did mention they were thinking about starting something up in White River Junction area if they found enough people who were interested. I told him I'd be there as long as I didn't have to work.
