Did any of you see it? There was a guy using signs that read " Body armor will soon be banned so it is on sale!" of course his price was $200+ over the price of online purchases.... JEEEZUZ

I get so tired of the scare tactics. But heay its a " Carnival Attitude" or a Gunshow fact that the buyer needs to beware.

yep... saw it-- commented on it out loud so people could hear the sarcasm.... ar15.commer (FAILSAFE) overheard and made a comment too... I guess my "loud comment" idea worked. hehe.

No, it wasnt your comment. I passed by that shithead while he was selling some body armor to a lady. He said, "hang on, I have to call the FBI to do a background check", but he didnt call anyone, he just acted like it.

We need to send Crooks like that back to the rocks they live under.

You're kidding! What a douche bag.

I didn't see the armor, actually I didn't get there until about 3PM today so I had to hurry and buy some lowers and other misc items before people started closing shop.

I did not see any signs, but was it that Filipino guy? If so he is an asshat of the 1st order!

+1

My personal favorite price gouge was the $13,000 Barrett M107. These can be had for under $9500 all over the web with little effort.

I saw it but wasn't concerned. I still use the "substandard" body armor issued by Uncle Sugar.
Scare tactics seem to be prevalent these days. I ALMOST bought a Titanium firing pin because I was convinced I was goiing to have a slam fire any day now. Funny, it never came up in 14 years of mlitary service.

Who was the body armor crook? Signs displayed at his table? Name of the business? Table location? I know some of the Dallas club officers and will get the word to them.

I can't answer any of those but as far as I saw he was the only table selling body armor.

Yep, the only one I saw selling body armor. And several signs advertising his "pre-ban sale."
