Question Anybody with a show report?

Hi, just curious who is going/went to the show. I'm sure all of who are not attending will have the usual questions:

How crowded was it?
Any primers/powders/bullets/ammo deals present?
Prices and availability of AR parts, mags, ect?
How was the jerky?

Since the show opened about 40 minutes ago, I'm guessing all the good stuff is probably gone, just trying to get a feel for the current situation at the shows. Thanks in advance for the update.

My father went. I didn't.

He said there was almost no reloading stuff, and what he saw was "vintage". He did manage to snag a bag of 100 very clean .223 brass though.

He also said the crowd was nothing compared to the last Crossroads show, but then again the Roadrunner show has been by far smaller since Crossroads came to town.

Blueline and Island View were there also.

I'm thinking of stopping by on Sunday for magazines and ammo..

Last month they had a big booth full of magazines of all varieties, is that back? Also is there any .22lr ammo for a reasonable price there?

Default It was barely able to call itself a gun show....

There were no ammo booths or reloading booths outside as you walk in, and there typically are about 6-7 and they are packed. Inside usually there are multiple large ammo vendors as well. Nothing. I saw no .223, which was sold out supposedly within an hour. Mags, I saw no real mags for 9mm in glock. The .40 cal prices for mags were outrageous. The Magpul mags were 65$.

There were no commercial vendors of AR/AK platforms. JD Machine had a minimal booth, with no weapons on display.

It really shows the impact the shortages are having.

You're asking in the wrong forum. This the Ventura County chapter. We're no where close to Reno, NV.
