Anyone going to the gun show this weekend, Feb 10th?

I am wondering what time to show up? I am hoping to find ammo and some accessories.

Opens at 7:30 am. I would be there the night before ;)
JK. Haven't been to their show, but I would think be there early and ready to stand outside waiting for it to open. Let us know how it goes!

Was there last weekend and it was packed! All ammo way over priced and gone quick. Lots of reloaded ammo but can you trust it? Good supply of guns but be ready to pay for anything "ban related". Get there early and maybe you will have some luck.

I am looking for SKS mags, accessories, & am prepared to wait awhile, but I guess I will see what happens.

Thanks for the advice.

Good luck. Please give us a brief report on the show. It's useful to know what's going on at those things.

That show is only about a half hour from me. I don't have any extra money to spend so I won't be going. I suspect prices are going to be high and items might be scarce. But it probably would be a nice day of browsing around. Let us know how it was.

Had a small amount of SKS stuff but I got there around 9. Colt ar-15's 3k plus. Ar's 15-2k. Lots of handguns with average prices. No excellent deals but if you need something and are willing to pay they will probably have it. One guy selling Walmart 35 dollar 100 round .223 ammo for 100 a box. Lol. (He still had it at 11). Most are good people at the show but most of the younger guys are trying to rape people.

I hope I don't get raped!! LOL

Especially at a gun show, you would think someone would stop that from happening. :)

I will give everyone a report on how it went. Besides the raping of course...heh heh!

After Show Report:

Ammo was decently priced. Higher than retail, but not too high. Reloaded ammo was good priced. 9mm reloads 100/$34.00, but reloads may be bad news. AR's were inflated but found a few well priced at about $1,650 for custom builds. Message me if you are interested for the dealer. All other firearms seemed higher in price than what u might see in retail or online after research but it wasn't more than I had expected going in.

We got to the fairgrounds at 730 and there were no lines.

Overall, I enjoyed the show and will plan to go back next month.

I'm glad you've been there and back already. The weather's getting bad out.

:eek: :eek:

Thanks for the report. Really thought it would have been more crowded, but wonder if the weather we had that morning impacted the turnout.

May hit the McHenry show on the 24th and see how that is.
