Wood,

This is the HGCA show. I don't think it's gonna be as small as you might imagine.

I plan to be there early and I'll have my daughter with me...so y'all behave..

i don't think this is the big 500 table show. is it?

usually it is about 100-200 tables. just guessing.

Why do you think it will be small? This is the HGCA Summer Show and Military Collectables Show.

Of course when it was in the Astro Hall, the June Show, was one of the biggest shows of the year. With the changes made at the Reliant Center, it may be smaller, but will be larger than 200 tables.

I'll be there, Saturday morning, probably leave aroung 2:00 - 3:00 pm.

That souds like a good plan...I'm going to the hunting show with my new hunting girlie but I think I'll have to make time for the gunshow too since I'm in the market for a Remington 700 LTR in 308. Man this has just made my day!!!

I'm planning on being there, but I heard parking is gonna be like $11 on Sat. due to the Metallica concert that night. They might refund some of the parking fee to gun show patrons, but I'm not sure. This may all be rumor--can anyone confirm?
Anyone got 2-4 USGI 20 rd mags they want to sell cheap? That's what I'll be looking for @ the show. Will they be selling ammo at this one?
Link Posted: 7/31/2003 2:08:08 PM EDT
Some of us can carpool and split the parking fee.
Link Posted: 7/31/2003 2:10:43 PM EDT
Count me in.

At the last Pasadena show they were passing out little slips of paper that said something about giving a parking rebate when you showed them your parking slip. (I always that you had to display that on your dash)

No ammo.

Well, i'd sure like to meet y'all, so I'll be there Sat. morning. I don't have no stinking little piece of paper saying I'm a gun show patron, so I guess I'll be in the line to get my refund when y'all get there.

Seeya Saturday,Wade

I don;t think they are asking for ID at the door. Just go and show up. I am sure one of us will pick up a ticket for you!

FIGHT THA' MAN!

I'm in for the show.
What time and where??
Link Posted: 8/1/2003 4:57:19 AM EDT
How about noon?
Link Posted: 8/1/2003 6:38:36 AM EDT
Is this in the new building to the NE of the dome, where they've been having the recent gun shows?

Do they ever still have them in the arena?

Me and my daughter will be there at 9 am.

She'll be 15 next week even though she's as tall as my bride...yes, she's cute and loves guns, and likes to shoot pistols and my Thompson...but you'll have to wait until she graduates from veterinarian school!!!

Any questions?

See y'all tomorrow.

At the entrance to the show area, next to or near the ticket booth?
Look for the ‘Peace Through Superior Firepower’ pins?

I should be at the GRB tomarrow untill 4...stop by there too if you can!

Guess I should've checked the board this morning before I left the house to find out the meeting place/dress code.
I got there about 11:45 and didn't leave 'til about 1:45. I was trying to keep my eyes peeled for y'all while looking for 20-rd mags--only I was looking for those Team Texas ar-15.com caps.

Pretty good show, I thought. I sure wish I would've had a big pile of money and all day to spend there, but I'm on a sorta tight budget, and had to get to Lowe's and find a garbage disposal and get home to get it installed.

Oh well, I'll catch up with y'all sometime. Hooters sounds fun Tues. nite, but I'd have an hour drive afterwards and have to work Wed. morning @6:30 (also an hour commute) bummer.

What did y'all think of prices etc? I found 2 Universal USGI 20 rd mags for $20 each from the old one eyed guy on the far end from the doors. He wanted $25 for some Colt 20's he had. I saw some 20's (Okay, IIRC) for like $39 (sign said "rare")what BS! Lots of 30 rd mags around at about $30, not many 20's (maybe they are rare, I dunno).

What's a .22 lr upper worth? I saw some for like $419--is that reasonable?

better cut this off before it gets too long.

See y'all around

Here's from the show today.

Sorry that Apester (April, my daughter) and I missed y'all. We arrived just before nine...and being out of work and all, two and a half hours of looking at stuff I couldn't afford to buy got to me.....

Cheers
