    Typical show, with the typical vendors and typical prices. Lots of foot traffic. I just enjoy walking through, scoping things out, and talking to random people...not sure how you define worth it, though.

    I did sit for a while at the CFF table with @LeeMajors and @Jeppo for a while and chew the fat. Got to meet @Slosolo2 and @Ikarus1 when they stopped by to say howdy.
    As always, I stopped by, said hello, and shook @cubrock 's hand. I really miss seeing @knifeman32 at these things. I hope he's able to return to the show circuit in the future once his health is under control.

    Good to meet @LeeMajors and @Jeppo today. It was my first time at a show in years—since well before it move to the Park. It was ok in my opinion. Not too many taser zappers and jerky sellers. A few vendors that don’t understand the ideas of a gun show deal. A few that did. Specifically North Georgia Reloading had great ammo prices on the common stuff. I was looking for a Beretta 92 but didn’t see any prices better than GunBroker.

    If you need to kill an afternoon, it’s worth the $8.

    Great show guys, best one I have been to in years....mainly because I got to meet some CFF family @LeeMajors and @draco88 and got a new hat. Bought a nice big range bag and a box of Aguila cowboy action 45. Pass up a few ammo and reloading deals, and got to fondle a few new guns. Everyone and their brother was selling the G43x and G48 so I will wait on one showing up in our BST.
    Anyhow, Dixie shows are still the best in town.[​IMG]

    I like pictures.
    How well does that magpul case fit? Mine has lost its grip bad. It's like it's stretched. This is the second one that's done this.

    I think I’ve made peace with those Italian MP/LEO surplus ones. You can get one on GunBroker for less than $300. I can get over the weird mag release location since it’ll just be a range queen.

    I’m betting the weight of the ammo I bought made me skip that one table! Rookie mistake!!!

    Its fits the GS7 pretty well but I dont remove it much. They're cheap enough to buy one for every phone I've ever had

    I was there with Lee for about and hour today he wore out 2 canes ;). I felt bad because I made him buy some ammo but did carry it back to his table for him!

    For Sure, He tried to beat me down and I had to convince him I was already a supporting member. After we got it figured out he was as nice as can be.

    I have had 5 of them. They all somehow "grow" despite not being removed. Apparently its got something to do with the plastic they use and how much I stroke my phone.

    That's a good description. I'm on my 3rd and I can now slip the case right off the phone effortlessly.

    I’ve used a Magpul case on my iPhone for many years. Never had to replace one mid-life of the phone. It’s like due to the extra radiation that an Android device gives off. Better keep it away from yer nuts.
