So is the Nat. Gun Day show a normal buy/sell event?

I might go the car show, but the last NGD show I went to was horrible.

Well I am coming in from Michigan and I am looking forward to this show.
I have heard good things from friends here in Michigan and Louisiana who have been before.

NGD was CRAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP last year. Too much non-gun junk.

Pam and I will be at the National Gun Day show this weekend. Look for us at the Bluebroker.com table.

Hope to see you there!

It seems at least one good guy will be there. I usually hit them all, so I can gripe after they are over. $10 is too much for half a show of scrap iron(antiques and rusted junk). Don't forget parking. Sat will be a hoot on the circle of death. Just be glad the park isn't open. The only thing that makes the show worthwhile is the $5 pork sandwich and $5 waffle cone of butter pecan that I can down without the old lady harping about what it will do to my blood sugar and liver.
Just wish they had more reloading supplies.

Between Centerfire and J&T I should find what I need at least.

I was there today, but couldn't find the Centerfire folks. Looks like I'll have to stop by the store and make a big order!

Just got back from the show. Parking was a nightmare as was trying to leave the show at 4:30. Everyone else had the same idea.
7.62X39 was short supply and high priced. 223 was available at reasonable prices.
Traffic through the aisles was crowded at popular tables.
Don't remember hearing Ron Dixon talking too much on the PA.
There was some reloading supplies available at what has come to be a normal price.
Usual assortment of scrap iron, flea market junk, canvas goods and uniform goodies. Some of the new stuff was way overpriced. Saw from 595 to 425 for same weapon and still was overpriced.
All in all probably worth the $10 admission and $5 parking, as I found enough ammo to save the admission cost over local prices but the walk back to truck was a killer.

Next time park at Executive West Hotel and ride their shuttle over to the fairgrounds. Just wait in the lobby by the front door until you see a Bellman, tell them you want to take the shuttle to the fairgrounds. When you need a ride back to the hotel call them (367-2251) and tell the operator which door you are at, the shuttle will be there in about five minutes. This way you get door to door service.

I used to work at Executive West as a Bellman, we did not ask guests for proof that they stayed at the hotel, we didnt care. We would take people just about anywhere they wanted to go for the right size tip.

TIP YOUR SHUTTLE DRIVER!
They make substantially less than minimum wage. I would rather give the bellman $6 round trip than pay for parking.
