We went. Place was packed. More tables than ever. Probably 500+ Prices were elevated and we heard several dealers complaining about lack of sales. LOL Yup. Your beat to hell and back Mossberg Maverick will not command a $250.00 price tag, and the PMR30 for $995.00 was hysterical.

Not many individual's walking thru with private sales. Ammo was priced high as well at some tables. $15.99 for Blazer brass 9mm.

Spent $2.00 on a bundle of parachute cord and that was our big purchase for the day.

Gun shows are always a toss up.
I bet .22LR is still way overpriced.

it was stupid busy. Atleast the people were mostly clean. I will never try to sell another gun of my personal collection at a gun show.

Had a great time, sold a Marlin 336 (actually a 30AS) and a Remington M582 and bought a S&W 19 and found three boxes of 45/70 ammo for $15/box. People were nice, all cash and quick. Couldn't find any scopes I wanted. Was looking for Williams peep but couldn't find the model I wanted. Plus it beat driving to Will Rogers in Ft Worth.

I went early and it was packed. Much busier than the last Allen show. Prices were high and nothing I couldnt live without
