I'm going to be there, who else is coming?

I have an idea, all ARFCOMmers could wear a baseball cap rally style (inside out), so when we see each other we will know. We can work on the secret hand shake when we are there. That is, unless there is a secret hand shake I don't know about. If you already have a really good secret shake in mind but don't want it put on the internet, you can IM me so non-ARFCOMmers can't see it.

How did you find out about the secret hand shake so soon of becoming a ARFCOM member?

J/K

I will be going with a buddy on Saturday. I hope to see Sully there to pick up some SA lowers and some lower part kits if they are there. My buddy is looking to get some stuff from DPMS if they are at this show.

I have a better idea, how about we all wear BDU trousers and a gun-related t-shirt, that way we will be able to recognize each other. BTW, I'll be the tall white guy in BDU Trousers...

I should be there for a bit to say hello.

I need to find the Ears Inc. person to get a set of custom ear plugs now that the glass cuts inside my right ear have healed over.

I also want to find some basic AR tools for maintenance. New chamber brush, handguard removal tool, etc.

You know damn right! I'll bring my goat in trade for a Hesse AK!

That would be a waste of a good goat.

I will trade you a turd if all you want is a piece of crap for the goat.

You would get more use out of the turd take the trade man.

At least you might hit something with the turd.

In an effort to avoid the usuriously expensive downtown parking ramps, I'm planning on parking for free at the Mall of Hysteria and taking the light rail into Minneapolis for the gunshow. What's the best stop to get off at, and how long is the walk to the Convention Center from that stop?

Thanks in advance!

Is there any chance of finding either a RRA flattop 9mm upper or Vector Uzi at this show? And for a respectable price of course.

I wonder what kind of looks you'd get if you carried a rifle (boxed of course) home on the LRT?

Well, it just shows you how long its been since I have even bothered to enter that area.



Its what happens when you live up in the sticks too long.

Actually, I am more concerned about not getting a hernia from hauling the 50-or-so pounds of reloading components that I usually get at these gunshows onto the LRT.

And then you have to walk about 7 to 8 blocks south on Marquette (or 2nd IIRC), and you'll be at the Convention Center! Either that, or you could get a TRANSFER slip from the transit guy on the light rail (do they give transfers?), and then get off the train on Nicollet Mall/Ave, and take a bus (a Number 18 would get you there, IIRC) down Nicollet to about 13th Street, and then head about 2 blocks east.... Check out the Metro Transit website for a specific trip plan on how to effectively get to the Convention Center...

It's up to you. I used to use MTC a *LOT* before I could 'afford' a car (I say that loosly because I never really could afford a car).


Thank you for the information!

Looking at the route map on www.metrotransit.org, it looks like my best bet is to get off at the Government Plaza Station and walk 8 blocks south along 3rd Ave. to get to the ConCen.

Again, thanks for the pointers. I'm planning on attending the gunshow on Sunday.

I COMPLETELY FORGOT. They have a no weapons on board policy (yeah, like criminals abide by that one... )



Well, I didn't see a "MTC BANS GUNS ON THIS TRAIN" sign last time I rode!

Since they are public transportation, wouldn't they be subject to the state's preemption and CC firearms laws? ie, if it's legal to carry at the State Fair, MTC rigs should be the same?

i bought my colt le from that show last year. i would have to say that it felt alittle wierd walking back to the parking ramp with it. expecailly when there was some kind of a childerns expo going on in the room above the show. i got alot of bad looks from parents when they saw the blue tag that said colt ar-15.

Hitman, re-check the thread title. We are talking about the gun show in downtown minneapolis, not the Gay 90s.

Hey now!, The Spandex I will be wearing is complete in Digi-Urban-Camo, with Kevlar reinforced seams, Ballistic stiching and tactical 5.11 Concealment options located throughout. I will fit right in with the rest of the BDU clad Weekend warriors.

Follow downtown exit signs to the 11th Street exit and follow 11th Street to 2nd Avenue South. Turn left on 2nd Avenue South and go 1 block to Convention Center.
