Didn't think I was gonna make this one, but looks now like I can make it. Anyone else going?
Link Posted: 5/11/2003 1:47:49 PM EDT
Count me in.
Mex food afterwards?

Be careful. When you talk about Mexican food it tends to draw out people like s0ulzer0.

Link Posted: 5/11/2003 3:25:10 PM EDT
I dunno if I'll be able to make it, count me in as a 80% probable. It'll all depend if I get this phantom check cleared up with the Credit Union

Ken and I will both be there on Saturday around noon and will stay for the most part of the day.
Link Posted: 5/12/2003 12:10:46 PM EDT
I'm going after work. Around 2:00 pm

mpearcex, wow. We get to see you guys two weekends in a row?
Link Posted: 5/12/2003 7:58:47 PM EDT
hey what times are all ya'll going to be there? and when and where are ya'll going to eat. We will eat with you guys this time. Keep us on the up and up.

I wish I could make this one...I love this show. I'll be attending my niece's wedding in Orlando, though. I may catch the show on Sunday if I'm coming through town early enough.
Link Posted: 5/13/2003 3:19:07 AM EDT
mpearcex, good question. What time we getting together? I need to be home around 4:00 at the latest. Well, who is doing what and when?
Link Posted: 5/13/2003 3:19:38 AM EDT
Bradd_D, anything you need picked up?
Link Posted: 5/13/2003 5:24:18 AM EDT
I'm going! I'll be there when the doors open or slightly later to let the line dwindle a bit. I think it opens at 10:00am on Saturday and I need ammo. I'm also in the market for about 6 front sight posts, butt stock cleaning kit, holster for my .9mm and a gun case so I wont drop my rifle bore down in the mud.. again.

What do you guys think about the 'canned heat'? I've heard good things, I've heard not so good things, what is the consensus on this ammo? I cant find any affordable LC XM193 or Q3131A anywhere, wholesalehunter is slackin'!!

Gilfrd, I’ll be there about the same time as you. Just curious, why do you need so many front sight posts? I’m going to try some of the GA Arms “canned heat” 9mm. I’m almost completely out of 9mm ammo. Are you talking about their 5.56mm stuff?
Link Posted: 5/13/2003 6:22:33 AM EDT
Howdy Book,

I need something that I can customize for my front sight. The original is too big and gets in the way, the crosshair front sight seems to blur the target a bit much. I was going to try to file them down in different ways to see what will work best for me.

I have .9mm ammo coming out my ears, I'm looking at the 5.56 stuff, have you tried it?

gilfrd
Link Posted: 5/13/2003 6:50:52 AM EDT
Nope. I only shoot Q3131A in my 16" and IMI M855 in my 20".
Link Posted: 5/13/2003 6:07:00 PM EDT
Mark...I'll take a redhead about 5'5"...oh...sorry...I'm good. I do appreciate the offer, though.

Bill...I used to shoot "canned heat" in my AR. No problems...very cheap. I had two bad rounds out of 1000. The primer fell out of one and the other had a badly dented case. Shot well, though.
Link Posted: 5/13/2003 6:45:19 PM EDT
Does anybody want to meet up at Shoneys for breakfast before the show?
Around 8 or 9?

ARH
Link Posted: 5/13/2003 7:55:23 PM EDT
Ken and I have bought canned heat from Georgia arms and we enjoy it. IT shoots about 2900-3100 FPS on the Crony. The ony problem we've found out of the last 4 cans we bought 3 had 488 rounds instead of 500 per can. But the quality is worth the $75.00 price tag per 500 in 5.56. We don't want to do Breakfast but will do late lunch if anyone are interested. It takes an hour to get there so leaving early for Breakfast wont be good for a couple of night shift guys. We may be harder to find this time due to we may not be wearing our shirts (ar15.com) But ya'll are more than welcome to wear yours if you have one,,, you do have a AR15.com shirt right? huh? huh?
Link Posted: 5/14/2003 2:35:29 AM EDT
10:00 Sounds like a good time to meet up. Do we want to meet just outside the door? I don't remember too many good meeting places inside.
Link Posted: 5/14/2003 4:46:28 AM EDT
I’ll be getting there about when it opens. So I’ll either be just inside the doors (Bernie’s table is usually just inside to the left) or in the little foyer waiting area.

Can’t do breakfast either. A late lunch is cool.
Link Posted: 5/14/2003 4:56:22 AM EDT
Did I hear the words "Shoney's" and "Mexican food"?
Link Posted: 5/14/2003 5:02:25 AM EDT
I can do Mexican, but no can do Shoneys. Dog is going to the vet.
Link Posted: 5/14/2003 5:07:15 AM EDT
Im trying to think of anything I " have " to have or buy...u know just an excuse to drive up there. Aw hell i'll prob be there anyway. Looking forward to seeing everyone again. 10AM at the front door sounds good. What time does it get started?
Joel
Link Posted: 5/14/2003 5:21:48 AM EDT
Joel, the show starts at 10:00 and there will be a line. But it shouldn't be that big of a deal.
Link Posted: 5/14/2003 5:30:32 AM EDT
What are the show times for Saturday? I gotta work until 1:00, but was going there afterwards.
I'm looking to get some ammo for my pet. Anyone know who to deal with on ammo at the shows? Any idea what 5.56 is selling for case wise? I bought a case for my AK, and some for my FAL last time for a good deal. Hope to see some of you guys there.

Andy, there is a guy that sells pretty much nothing but ammo. He is usually 2/3 of the way towards the back on the left side (but not up against the wall). I’ve gotten Q3131A from him for as low as 1$165 + tax per case.

Some of the guys like the GA Arms “canned heat” ammo. It’s usually cheaper than Q, but the Q is M193 spec.

Show hours are 10:00 – 18:00 Saturday and 12:00 – 17:00 (I think) on Sunday.
Link Posted: 5/14/2003 12:57:30 PM EDT
Yes - Will be there at 10:00AM.

Hey Delta! How does the Oly shoot? I saw your pics at CE last Saturday.

Joel

Howdy fellers. I won't be able to make this show, which one is it anyway(location: trade center?!?)? Does anyone know if there will be another funshow before BOOMfestII? It would suck to have tannerite but nothing to touch it off with. I am needing some more CHEAP ammo.

Enjoy breakfast and lunch without me. Oh, yeah, while yous guys are looking at guns-n-shit I will be meeting up with lostwildcat to stress test my aluminum plate. It is gonna be a short test, but it could just be fun!

Byte, be sure to tell LWC howdy from me. Don't stand too close to that steel now boys!

Not sure when the next show is scheduled or the location. I can always pickup (and split with ya if you need) a case of Q3131A for $180 + tax. But, you like the S&B and Wolf stuff don't ya?

Will do...

Uh, what part of cheap do you not understand?!?! It's not that I LIKE Wolf, I just don't have any problems with it. Lorraine ain't picky! There are usually two ammo guys that have battlepack(type/quantity) stuff and I see which one will give me the best price. I think the last time I bought Wolf I got the half case, one plastic sleeve out of the box. I wish I could remember how much I paid. That is usually all my budget can handle.
