When I stopped in at that show the last time they wanted $10 just to park!

Then I think the admission is another $12!

I turned around and left.

I can go to Cabelas in E.Hartford and they have more guns than that so called show and the parking is free.

Yeah... but after dealing with Mr. "I was a Colt employee" I tend not to buy anything from them.

Gunshows are great if you're looking for an obscure part/piece/equipment.

I know exactly who you are talking about. Miserable old bastard. I actually actively seek out his help when I go there just to "inconvenience" him.

I just got home the show. What a friggen ripoff on everything. Most things were selling for 120-150% of their retail cost. I have never seen so many people at that show either. In the past 3 years it seems as if the crowd has quadrupled. Very disappointing to say the least. One of the vendors was saying that the line to get in this morning was close to a half a mile long.
