    Winter weather notwithstanding, the Dixie Gun Show is this weekend in Charlotte. We’ll be there. Who else is going?

    They usually put us in the back left corner. Buddy of mine and I will have the whole block there. Look for all the old milsurps.

    I should be there one day just to walk and look. The Missus will probably come with me to this one, she usually makes the Clt show with me.

    Thinking about going, but I wouldn't even be able to purchase a handgun there without a NC Driver's license (unless I'm missing something). Just moved here from Maryland, but I may still visit. At some point I'd like to visit a gun show in NC. I have been to several in MD, PA, and the Chantilly gun show in VA.

    Worse than that. You can't buy a handgun without either a Pistol Purchase Permit or a Concealed Handgun Permit. Just the NCDL gets you nothing...

    I doubt it, but you can always ask.

    I’d be surprised if you get ahold of them, but I’d just show up Saturday morning ready to set up. I can about guarantee there will be cancellations and they’ll find a table for you.

    Odds are 99 out of 100 that she'll have cancellations coming out her ears and she'll welcome you with wide open arms. I'll try to talk to her tomorrow afternoon when I check in and see if she has one for you and post here. I say try because it is likely to be crazy and it may be hard to get to talk to her (as opposed to one of her employees).

    Please let me know. Ive left a VM for them with my contact info and information on what I sell (and that Ive been a vendor at that show a year ago).
    It'd be nice if the vendor price was under the 65 since it was only one day, but whatever.

    @HMP

    Missy says come on tomorrow morning and bring enough to cover a couple or three tables. I don’t know how she is handling pricing for tables but I’m sure you can dicker with her.

    Only if they need beef jerky badly. I was invited to this show by a friend, I think I'll pass and make the Salisbury one next week.

    Well I dont think it'll work out, I was feeling a bit rough earlier this week and today I have no voice. It's bad. At work I got to where I just handed out work and had them work on it because I couldnt speak without my voice breaking constantly.
    So, unfortunately because this is a perfect situation for me, Im out.
    SUCKS>

    Ugh. Good luck, I've been carrying around that bug all week. Not sure if I'll make it, might try to get some damn pin oak leaves up before snowmageddon.

    It really sucks because a GOOD show for only one day would be so awesome...but, of course, it's when I cant really speak well. Dangit.
