    Yea TXS...the shows in my general area are a good mix of firearms,

    ammo, holsters and cases, knifes, and parts like grips & optics.

    Proably won't make the one in San Antonio this weekend. No ride. Too blind to drive now or I would go.

    Maybe Pharr, Tex show, just walk it.

    Definitely have a table space at the Corpus Christi shows for Oct. Nov. and Dec. shows. Come on by and let us scam you out of your guns, knives, women, etc. Will be swapping a few, buying some, selling assorted gun junk and some rubber band guns for the kiddies.

    Yep, they usually pay for the table cost, food,a nd fuel. I hand cut a small rifle-12" a large rifle, 20" and small handgun. Wood clothes pin on top and a rubber band. Sometimes it gets the dads to hang around long enough to get hooked on one of the real ones.

    When they all start firing you don't want to be standing on this side of the firing line. If you go be sure to bring ear & eye protection you will need it.

    Here is another local show for those that live close to the SW Indiana area.

    Corner of Lloyd Expressway and Vann Avenue
    Evansville, Indiana.

    Sunday, Oct 28, Dealers at 8AM, Public 9AM to 2PM.

    Edit; I just found out it is going to be a WWII Vehicle show too, for only $5.00 this should be something to see. I'll keep you posted if it is a good show or not.

    I will be working a table with a buddy this coming weekend at a show in the Corpus Christi, Tex. So if ya feel like coming down and get scammed out of your guns, please so so. Will be swapping a few, buying mostly, unloading a few we are bored with, and selling some used mags, holsters, s and zipper bags The real $ maker is the rubber band guns for the Kiddies.

    I have shot MGs before so it is no big deal to me but my daughter likes to shoot them. They had a wide range of MGs to rent/shoot at Knob Creek but the prices are a little high for my liking.
    Here is a picture of prices from a few years back, I'm sure the prices are higher now.

    At those prices I think I will waste my ammo money at the club range.
    The gun show was good this year but the ammo prices were higher than online prices.

    BersaOwner,

    Thanks for posting the list. I wish I could read it, but I can't. I can barely read the posts on most forums. This forum is not as bad as some. I have advanced gluacoma and retinopathy. (optic nerve damage) I read really slowly now and my spelling sux cause I can't read what I put down sometimes.:D

    Just wondering if you had been able to fire some at some time. Eye doctor even made me quit driving 5 years ago unless I absolutely have to. So I have to count on my wife to drive me, usually where she wantss to go. I would like to go see.....well, kinda see, one of those shoots. But I have a hard time getting her to drive me to a gunshow for the weekend. No way to an MG shoot.:D

    Well, we are back from a a long weekend at the gunshow. It wasn't too bad. I managed to snag 4 guns at fair prices. Plan to do some reange reports. Howver, it will onl be on 2 of the 4 cause 2 of them didn't make it home from the show.
