    Perhaps someone might have a business with a parking lot not exposed to the public. If enough attended we could maybe do grilling like burgers or something like that.

    Why not just make it a regular thing at the local gun shows. A day or two before the show, make a post here and those that plan to attend can RSVP and list what they are bringing for the "swap meet". Then just decide on an area of the parking lot at the gun show to meet and a time to meet. Lunch location can be decided on the spot if those who are there want to shoot the bull over food. Seems simple enough.

    Take the Kenner show for example. Hours are 9-5 on Saturday and 10-5 on Sunday. Not everyone will be available on Saturday and not everyone will be available on Sunday. I would suggest that whoever can make it, gather in the back corner of the lot for noon each day. Lunch can follow at 1 pm at a restaurant decided on at that time. Make it out to whatever day you can.

    Just my two cents.

    Love the idea. I don't have a spare parking lot though.... The park on Loyola near Vintage? Lafreniere is a bit too crowded. BBQ/ swap meet featuring N4Sir on the grill?

    Sounds like a great idea. To bad I don't get that far down south very often. Usually in the summer months. Set a date, who knows. Might can make it.

    I think it helps that you can see the item in person first without a feeling of obligation. Also, sometimes, there are good deals, they are just aren't good enough deals to drive 150 miles or meet far away during the week. You'd have more changes to get something good with more possiblities

    Which is what got me thinking about this in the first place. No one lists on old holster. We all have a draw full. I'm not going to list a $20 item on bs.com. Unfortunately, i instead go out and drop $50 on another holster that I'll later decide needs to go in the draw... but with a swap meet I can offer old gun parts (I have an AR tower sight in my draw that I'd sell for $5 say....) or a pocket knife or two, an old scope, etc.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Which is great except for the 2 hour drive... Not saying I wouldn't attend one there and shoot but not quite what I had in mind for this... I was thinking about a quick and easy afternoon outing, make a few swaps, get to know a few members, eat some good food.
