Well I haven't seen any advertisments for the show this year so started to wonder if it was going to happen or not this year. Checked their website and it looks like there are some changes this year for the Ft.Worth show. First off it looks like the Ft. Worth show is going to be the first show this year instead of the the last like I believe it use to be. Second (someone correct me if I am wrong) but didn't this show always take place at Will Rogers?? Looks like this year its at the convention center.

And last but not least it looks like its $15 to park. roflmao

I think I have only missed this show twice since 1997. Lately all it seems I walk away with is a couple of 12 volt feeder batteries and some jerky to munch on while I walk around. I have already made plans not to go this year. Sad to break a simi-tradition but I cant justify the cost of paying $15 to park and $10 to get in anymore just to save $3 on some batteries. Already ordered those batteries online.

I quit the tradition years ago. It was one of my favorite activities, but I guess it just got old. Doesn't seem worth it anymore with the changes.

We are planning to go to the San Antonio show. But you guys are making me have second thoughts.

There isn't necessarily anything wrong with it. Some of us just don't feel it's worth the effort, anymore. You may enjoy it. Many people do.

I go every year. I think it's fun just to walk around and see the new things people are coming up with.

They are doing it at the convention center because that park of Will Rogers is being renovated. It's suppose to be back at WR next year.

We will be there with Horizon as well as iota We have a 20 foot booth there this year and will have our stocks there on a lot of rifles. We are giving away a few sets of tickets over the next couple weeks on our Facebook. That won't help with parking but will get you in the door for free.

HorizonFirearms, We will visit your booth and chat with you guy's. FYI I'm retired military and retired Police. I was in the military back in the 60's. Served 2 tours in Nam. Was a member of a Army rifle team that shot international matches. Open sights up 500 yards. I can still shoot. I'll be riding a red scooter as my old war wounds are starting to take a tool on me.

Glad to see that it is finally going to the Convention Center. It outgrew Will Rogers 15 years ago! One of things that I disliked was how crowded it was for not only the visitors but more so for the vendors. I haven't been in the last 5 years, simply because of the arrangement of the floor space and vendors. I did two shows when I was with Academy Sports and always felt like a sardine in there!

Hello jdickey, My wife and I attended one of the seminars you put on at the Academy in Waco several years back.

I'm sure someone there will be selling guided Pokémon hunts. Its the latest greatest thing to hunt and they will probably book every available date as well. bolt

Seriously its a great show to book hunts. Its just not a show for me anymore.

I can find everything I need online...

I used to enjoy it years ago..but haven't seen anything that would tickle my Feathers in the last few years. It was like groundhog day.

Nothing in the industry has changed much..Feeders are getting shorter, people are moving away from junk timers and motors and leaning toward more quality products like All Seasons and West Texas Supply and buying more quality weapons like Alamo Precision Rifles.

I wonder if UltraDeerTowers will be there bolt
