So the "Tanner Gun Show" made it down to my neck of the woods this weekend from Denver and everyone was pretty psyched as our periodic local shows typically don't fill up, either in the vendor spaces or crowd numbers and selection is never even adequate. This filled up nicely. It looked like there was at least 90% of the vendor spaces taken and the place was packed with shoppers. I'm always looking for something unique (I know I'm picky) and my friend was looking for his first gun, which he intended on being a 1911. THE GOOD: I can't say the selection was poor, but reasonable prices for quality guns were few. There would be one vendor that had killer deals on the XD line and another that had a great selection of modern Smiths priced reasonably. There was even a few gems I found that I may return tomorrow and offer partial trade or sale for the acquisition of. Then of course there was a WONDERFUL selection of Glocks, XDs, HKs, Kel-Tecs, Sig Sauer, Mossbergs, Barrets and (over-priced) AKs THE BAD: Overall pricing was, on average, 33% higher than what I would consider "fair". Some items I bought with in the last 12 months were actually marked double than what I paid less than 3 months ago. Last, but not certainly not least, the overall quality was nothing special. There were as many Taurus', (Mostly Judges), Jimmenez, High points, Bersas, etc. than I have ever wanted to see in one room, no matter how large the room. So I guess I go back tomorrow and see what's left and hopefully the vendors are willing to ditch a few at reasonably fair prices and maybe do some trading. I guess I must have high expectations, but I'm never gonna get wound up for a gun show again.
