    Anyone go to the Show This Past Weekend?

    In Raleigh. Probably not and apparently no one else did, either. I popped in on Sunday and first of all it didn't fill the entire building, and second it was strangely devoid of customers. There was maybe 200 people or less when I went in. I knew it was a bad sign when I found a parking spot almost right outside the door. Talked to one vendor for a few minutes and he said he hadn't sold a thing the whole weekend.

    Prices were good, I walked out with a butt load of ammo at an amazing price (save the 7.5x55 stuff, that was a little higher than usual, but I made a killing of .45s). Got real cheap Glock factory magazines. Guess they were just trying to unload.

    Who's got money with 3 teens to buy Christmas presents for. Not to mention the usual stuff to pay for, braces, car insurance, and the big one FOOD!

    I could've used some more .45, oh well...

    I would have loved to have gone - this is the first I had heard of the show. I guess I should poke my head up and look around more frequently!
