the online coupon is for 1 dollar off, which makes it 15 dollars to get in.

Ammo is still expensive. They're asking $45 for $25 magazines for some reason they still think there's a panic. .223 is still over $0.50 per round.

I regularly see the ads up for the gun show at the OC fairgrounds. Is it actually worth it to go? Any good deals? Or am I better off looking at the Turner's ad and visiting the surplus store?

I went last year at the height of the panic and witnessed retards lining up to buy guns after having 10 seconds to reach in and hold a secured one at the counter.

I'm talking about guys reaching over / between other guys to handle a handgun then deciding right there to buy it. wtf?

The ammo was over priced, very very very few vendors had reloading gear or supplies and lots of the vendors were selling gimmicky crap like LED flashlights for hats and hidden blades for keychains...$20-$30 paracord bracelets etc.

The line for the ammo vendors went through the venue, out the entrance, and all the way through the parking lot to the street. Dudes were bringing wheeled carts for their ammo and looking all proud as they headed to the parking lot after getting bent over at the register lol

Don't get me started at the line just to buy an entrance ticket then the line after that just to get in. Oh yeah...and if you buy tickets online? You'll stand in line to pick those up too just before you stand in line to get in lol

Don't hate on the gun show. I see it as a chance to see lots of cool stuff and keep current on what's out there, but it's a bonus if I can score some deals. They are there, sometimes you have to look. I picked up a few name-brand AR components today that weren't much cheaper than I see in the store or online, but in paying cash I didn't have to pay sales tax or shipping, which saves $$.

Actually, ammo vendors have Wolf Military Classic and WPA in 7.62x39mm priced at $219.95 for 1k rds which is a deal even with tax.

Parking was $7.00!
Reloading supplies are becoming more readily available. I arrived early, stood in line (Miwall) for an hour and was able to get several pounds of Varget, 4895, 4064 and a box of (500) .45 bullets. When I left at ~12:00, there was no line for reloading supplies, Varget was gone but 4895 and 4064 was available.
Biggest crowd for weapons appeared to be at Quantico (San Diego store).

There was a fair amount of 22 LR at the show today...at outrageous prices. I didn't feel like paying $75 for a brick so I left it all for the poor fools that deserve to be ripped off.

I did score two cash and carry guns; a single-shot bolt action 22 (Stevens Model 53B) and a Russian M44. I was looking for but didn't find any decently priced SKS rifles (only saw ~5 total, ranging in price from $650-$900).

Powder prices at Miwall were ridiculous. $30 for a lb of IMR4895/4064 etc..

They managed to be $1 more expensive than Fowlers and Stockade. I mean, more expensive then Fowlers? That takes skill..

wow, talk about ammo prices? prices just in general were through the roof. It was ridiculous. Most of those people selling ammo, are those individuals who wait out at walmart at 6 in the morning, pick up a brick of 22 for $20 and turn around and rip you off at $75-85 for 500rds....it was plain stupid

I only purchased one rifle, one upper, 3 bayonets, 6 clips and 200 rounds of 7.62 x 54R. I was barely OK with the ammo purchase price. The good news is that these things are now mine and Yes I am going back today.

I was working my buddy's booth (headhunter firearms) right by calgun's booth. Prices were totally unpredictable. cci 41 primers 29.00 for 1000 @ miwall, pretty good deal, 22LR cheapest I saw was 60 a brick/500 which is still crazy. I did score some hornady ammo 32 winchester special with the FTX bullets for 21 bux a box, hell I almost pay that just for the brass LOL. From what I am seeing at the shows the prices are coming down, but some people think they still have gold. We were selling BCG's for 115.00 and were negotiable if you bought more than one :-)

I bought my first AR15 yesterday from a xoptics out of northern CA. My friend and I both bought guns from him. Pretty happy with the deal I got.

Hmmm...went shooting Saturday with wife and son, their first time at an indoor range and with a pistol - so that was fun. On the way out saw the discount ticket for the show and remembered it was going on. We were too late. Sunday tied up with family gig so couldn't make the show.

Glad to hear I didn't totally miss out.
Maybe I can catch the next one.
