Default Gun Shows - Planning on Attending Any?

I was just curious who here attends the gun shows and what kind of deals you see. The last show I was at had a few good deals like the Ruger LCP for 299! Which I thought was a good price and even seen a Walther PK380 that a friend of mine bought for $340 if my memory serves me correctly

I quit going to gun shows a long time ago. I have yet to see a show that had deals anywhere near what the local shops are offering. The one benefit is you do get to look at and handle a wide variety of stuff. The only purchases I ever made at gun shows were from private sellers walking around...

I go to check out new things and if you want ammo in bulk you can save on shipping charges. Also I find that you can get the soft cases very cheap at gun shows vs in store prices.

I'm going to one on Saturday or Sunday.
I plan on getting some stuff for my 1858 New Army revolver.

I just love the variety and occassional bargain on things other than Guns.

There was a new Vendor at the last show promoting Power Bands. Has anyone seen these yet? Has a hologram that is "charged" and helps promote better health?

I go to the Indy 1500 regularly to check out the new items. As far as purchases go, Bulk ammo w/o shipping charges, holsters and cases, beef sticks, and the occaisional used firearm. I can order most firearms online cheaper even with shipping and transfer charges, especially new ones.

When possible. I feel it shows my support even if I don't buy anything.

I go to most shows around here, there are people I only see there. Seldom do you find a good deal on a gun but I'm always looking at used Leupolds, got my last 2-7 for $160.

I go. Just to see some new things and hang out and let my sons see different guns. I very rarely buy any guns because they are just not the deals they were five or ten years ago but I do go to about three a year out of about Ten local shows.
