Gun shows are a gathering place for the true believers of our faith. Can you imagine any churches having the turn out that gun shows have. And everyone who comes in drops from $20 bucks to $1,000s. There is more to it than how much a Russian rifle is selling for.

Gun show this weekend in Pensacola was/is a joke. Prices are thru the roof.

I didn't find a single item. Lol, guess I'm just bitter for not finding anything.

I'm in Indianapolis. We just had our big gun show, The Indy 1500. Parking was $5.00 and entry to the event was $12. Only thing I saw not marked way up were shotguns like the 870 and 500. I also saw 8 boxes of .38 Super for $17 a box. Other than that, rip off time.

I went to a local gun show last weekend. I just wanted to see how much people were asking for stuff. Saw a basic colt ar for $2600, 30 round mags for 50, and a beta mag for 300-400 it was pretty amusing

Some of the vendors are very proud of their wares (read expensive), so it is best to know prices while walking through.
I have been saying for years that Maine should so that. If I have a concealed handgun permit then why do I need to do a background check every time I by a gun? Sounds like AZ is doing it right!

then do something about it! stop whining and complaining. call, write and email your states elected officials. get others to do the same. sitting here on the forum complaining about it will change nothing, get pro-active and do something.
