Ventura Gun Show
 
Anyone know if the Ventura fun show is happening this weekend at the Ventura County Fairgrounds? Saw it posted on several websites but itís no longer on the fairgrounds webpage.

Gotta try to find me some creedmoor pills....

If it is still run by Crossroads of the West, it is not on their website.

Hey looks like Ventura will finally have a gun show on October 23 and 24. I should be off and in town so I'll stop by and check it out.

Don't waste your time in Ventura. I went to the last Crossroads show 2 years ago. 90% of the items, pertained to the AR stuff. Use to be in 2 buildings, and was only in 1 building, last time. I bet, there will be little ammo for sale by the vendors.

I know that's the truth BUT I don't usually purchase from the big vendors when I go to any gun show anyway. For one I don't have the time or the patience to wait in the lines. I deal mostly with the small independent guys. I always try being respectful and try befriending them. This allows my to negotiate price or barter (many of you know how much I like to trade). Also I can ask if they have something at home, that I'm looking for and possibly set up a meeting on a different date. After that I have there contact info and I can see if they have anything when shows aren't going on. It's more about socializing and building a network. Also keeping these dying events once called a "Gun Show" alive in California.
The shows used to be grate everywhere both without participation on both side, I doubt we will ever see that again. Plus the opportunity to be around like minded individuals for at least a little while, is almost priceless now a days.
