    Well....just because we just had a gun show in Greensboro doesn't mean we can't have one in Winston! C&E Gun Show this weekend at the Dixie Classic Fairground/LJVM Coliseum complex Education Building.

    We will be there. Who else is going?

    It had a lot of people but they didn’t seem interested in buying according to some vendors I saw.. I bought a weapon light & a new wallet made from snakeskin, it was nice but I think I should have got the regular cow wallet.

    How are you doing at getting rid of your auction goodies?

    Sold a couple today. Sold all three of the Colt black powder guns to the same guy last week in Greensboro. The piles of miscellaneous stuff haven’t been touched, though.

    Is it a lot different, as far as vendors, than GSO?
    I guess, ultimately, what Im curious about is whether it's worth it for me to go, or if it's mostly what I saw last Saturday

    Mostly what you saw last Saturday. There are some vendors that were not at Greensboro. Atlas Arms has a couple tables and they usually run a couple show specials, but you can see their shop any time you want since you live near Winston. There are a few private table guys that weren't at Greensboro. Just depends on what you are looking for.

    851FD669-DC36-435B-AB8A-95E1E42FE76E.jpeg I was surprised to see the guy from King with a wall of 5$ ammo cans. Also found one of my un-findable guns on Steve’s table - a S&W Model 15 snub. Sold my 629 within 2 minutes of walking through the door. Some of the usual vendors must have gone to the Raleigh show, but it was a great show, for me.

    That guy with the ammo cans has made a bunch of vendors either drop their prices or stop putting ammo cans out for sale. Free market at work.
