    No, it’s the one at the old mall.....it’s a decent size show, they do 3 per year normally. It’s one of my favorite shows

    Anybody that’s gonna be there with a table, would you sub-lease one small section to see if I can move some ammo?

    Can’t commit just yet, but if you would at least entertain the possibility, let me know and we’ll take it to PM.

    Is this the NC collectors show, or one of the chain shows?

    I’ll be at the table with @Joem and have some ammo for sale. None of you will want it at the asking prices, but don’t let that keep you from stopping by to say Hey. :D

    I'm thinking seriously about going to this one. Is it worth the trip to Salisbury or more jerky and junk?

    I am not a fan of plastic guns and I find more guns I consider interesting at this show. I stopped doing most shows because I get tired of seeing the same things, but Salisbury has never disappointed me (even though they do have trinket salesmen and quite a few of the same old dealers)

    It’s packed...... ammo seems to be the hot ticket. Folks not looking for high end guns, which is not good for me

    We’re here just past the entrance. Lots of bodies with empty pockets.

    What I’ve looked at so far is 2-3 hundred$ above what it should be

    I won’t be here tomorrow. I’ve sold some 5.56, 9mm, and 300BLK.

    hoping to sell a little more, meet up with @Jeppo, and then go home

    Decent day, nothing like the last couple shows which may mean things are going to stabilize...... working some dealer trades tomorrow to keep things interesting, so it will be a good weekend regardless. Good to meet a few of you...

    It’s an odd time for a collector to sell stuff..... I turned down $2,700 on a $2,800 gun, just because I don’t know if or when I could replace it. Just a different vibe these days...

    We went. I can't believe Ammo prices were that high, but that's to be expected. I did see 2 Grendel p30s in halfway decent shape for a good price (around $350), but other used guns seemed to be overpriced. My wife got to hold a Glock 42 and I think she wants that for her carry gun (the vendor's was priced high imo). I guess I need to look into them for her.
