the only reason i would go is to look at some of the knives. i've been wanting a microtek knife.

the last time i was there i saw one, but i didn't know the going price so i didn't buy it.

maybe snag a cheap rifle or AR parts. Not much to be found there.

I'm with you Stump. Knob Creek is a good show. It seems like the show in Lex only pans out if you neeed a particular piece or part . Good deals are few and far between. NGD was a good show just for sheer numbers of tables of stuff.

What I have noticed from the Lexington Shows is that Bud's Gun Shop usually has the best prices on new stuff, heck you are better off just going to his shop. I like to tinker with used stuff and I don't see many deals at the Lexington show, but at least parking is easier.....

Went today, prices were high on a lot of stuff, but did pick up a couple of things. May go back tomorrow for the "I don't want to schlep this home" deals.

I'll probably go up tomorrow. I have a super redhawk I may try to sell or trade.

Anybody go back today? It was packed for parking because of the game, but the show was pretty empty. I did a little trading, nothing much to speak of.

yeah I went on Sunday and was pretty pissed off. Forgot about the game and got there close to 11 so I had to pay 8 bucks to park and then I get into the show and they had raised the price of admission to 7 bucks. I wasn't very happy (and I am not that cheap) but it galls me that the promoter puts the gunshow on the same day as a uk game and the same venue and then even raises his admission to boot. If anything they shoulda given a discount especially given that there were a lot of empty tables (smoothed over by the dealers next to them) but still you could tell.

this show is getting old too. I see the same dealers with the same stock for 80% of the show. Then if its not that, the airsoft have begun to take over as well as knives and misc. tables.
