I know the topic has fairly well been beaten to death, but seriously; what is wrong with people at gun shows? I went to one today, and honestly I want my $8 entrance fee back. There were basically 3 real firearms sellers there and about 30 people selling crap. And almost every patron fell into one of three categories: 1. The Vet. The old war veteran in full regalia who has no intrest in firearms and just wants to stand around talking to other Vets in the middle of walkways. 2. The Ghetto Thug Wannabe. I literally heard the phrase "where yo Glocks be at?" more than once. This almost frightened me as much as 3. The Stoner. These people wander around with glazed looks in their eyes, 45 visible piercings and a marajuana leaf embroidered at least once on their clothing. Almost no one was making a purchase, possibly because there was little worth buying. Just a LOT of milling about. I went with over $1000 in my pocket looking to make a purchase and left with nothing. I actually stood at a booth for almost 10 minutes holding a shotgun wanting to buy it, but no one came over to take my money. Oh and one of the three real firearms sellers is my usual gun shop, not 3 miles from my house. And not one person working THAT booth is someone I'm used to seeing at the shop.
