At Reliant Hall - anyone else going?

I'm gonna walk around trying to sell my modified 2001 RRA LEGP there tomorrow.

Which brings up a question - what's it like selling a rifle at a gun show while just walking around? Any tips? Warnings?

Thx for the advice.

I figured they're would be more people talking about the show or advice as to how to sell the rifle at the show.

Anyway, guess w/out all the ammo to throw in maybe I'llknock some of the $$$ off the purchase price.

Here's a couple of pointers for success at the gunshow!

1. Don't shave for a cuple of weeks before going in.

2. Wear full combat fatigues that are about 3 sizes too small so any beer belly that you have sticks out and your plumbers crack is fully visible.

3. Wear a ratty assed booney hat or one of those caps that has the mounts for two cans of beeer and straws on the sides.

4. Carry your AR on a tactical sling, at the ready, just in case the black helicopters come to get you.

5. Carry a few pistols stuck in your wasitband w/o holsters!

Yep, that should do the trick:)

Sounds about right. BTW I'll be there at about 10am to check things out.

What about just keeping the ammo in your car outside the event???

I'm a bit confused - there was ammo everywhere at the Reliant Hall show...

Anyway, the deed is done - in the old AR's place is a Rem 700 BDL in 30-06 w/ a Leupold scope, and a Benelli Nova 18 in. barrel.

I did well.

Bought jerkey and all sorts of crap like flint-firestarters, etc.

Gun shows are a threat to my financial well being...
