I'm waiting for Valley Forge in March. I find the NY shows downright depressing.

I go to Middletown just to get ammo even though I should just take the drive down to United Cartridge in Pomona. I would love to go to Valley Forge but my current medical problems preclude me from handling a six hour round trip and a show by myself. hr


If you live in Rochester, Wayne county area you just have to drive to my place and keep me company, I will give ya a lift. You buy the coffee for the way down.

Ahhh. Valley Forge, brings back memories of the old days. Definitely way better than anything around here.

Never been there. How's the availability of preban mags there? Been looking to get some on-line but I may hold off until I check out the show.

BTW here is a link to OC shooter website and a $1 off coupon. Not much but a buck is a buck!

Coupon

Thx.

So will the Middletown show be any better than the Albany show or the other shows that are in the Albany area. The last Big Al's show at the Friar Tuck Inn was terrible

I was afraid of that. I think I'll just order on-line. Lotsa vendors out there! Thanks.

That about sums it up with one exception, the Syracuse Show. That is the show to go to in NYS.



When is the 'Cuse show? April?
It's sad really, but I live 5 mins from the Fairgrounds, was born and raised in Syracuse, and I don't know when the show is.

Is it true that there are judges and/or clerks at the show to amend pistol permits with new purchases?

United Cartridge in Pomona, they sell to the public?

I live near Pomona.

Call Steve and ask him. You get a better deal picking up than at the Middletown Show. You can pick up some for me and deliver on your way to PA and save me the trip.

Can you IM me his number? I don't know what I did with his card. I want some XM193,
not PD and I want to know if he will have some at the show.

What time does the show open in the morning?

I will be at the show one of the days (probably Saturday) - my gunclub (Walden Sportsmans Club) will be sharing a table with the guys from SCOPE. Stop by and say hi, pick up an application for a good gun club and join SCOPE while you are at it. I hope to meet a bunch of you.

Sorry I missed ya Chrome. I left around 11:30 as I had to get on the road to Pa. Had a good time visiting with Raptor and meeting Bushman and the guys manning his club's/SCOPE's table.

Not much to see IMHO, though I did get a thousand rounds of Paki .308 for $165 and 1K of South African battle packs for $225.

Funny, Ralph "The Rifle Guy" Flint was there but only selling uppers and parts since he got hauled away in cuffs form the last show for selling LEOnly magazines...

Now, howzabout a NY/NJ HTF Roadtrip to the next Valley Forge show? I hear Phil-a-steen knows where all the hookers and blow good hotels are.



you overpaid on both the SA and paki ammo, could of gotten it cheaper shipped from online..

It was great meeting you Helldog and Raptor! The table seemed to be getting pretty good results in new members for the Club and SCOPE. It seemed like overpriced ammo cans were the best seller. I think this was the first time I ever walked out of the show empty handed

I actually do know of a nice strip bar in Harrisburg from when I used to go to that show

But Philly is my wife's hometown and she goes with me to that show so I can't do any naughty fun things at Valley Forge.


If anyone wants to set a meeting for the VF show, I'm in.

So, how was the show?
Was it worth a visit? I've given up on shows in NY unless they're very close by.
Link Posted: 2/26/2006 5:31:27 PM EDT
Hey you sackless wonders!!! I was there, to my own surprise, opening Saturday freezing my stones off on the LEFT SLOWER line, with the PREETY FEMALE clerk. I was displaying my Ar15.com mock green turtle neck and NOT ONE of you stopped me and exchanged pleasantries.

Should I have gone to the microphone and announced "all Ar15.com members with sacks please meet at?" ... I did not know I was going till late Friday night and didn't have time to research this thread.

I am done AND I am not responsible for the content of this thread, because I am old and cranky! Oh, and tired.

It would have been cool though see you all - perhaps next time, right?

Ammo prices weren't that good. Bought some Wolf anyways, VA-Gunnut says, "it's good stuff".
