    Gun Show Lamar Dixon

    Went to gun show today for the first time in a year. It was the worst gun show I have been too in my life. Price Gouging is an understatement. $80 for a box of 9mm when I can get 9mm on the online now for about $25. Almost every gun was about $1000k even for things that I can get online for about $250. I know prices have increase, but not like this.

    Then to top it off some scumbags stole 4 guns while I was there.

    Surrounded by thieves and price gougers.

    And you had to pay to get into the gun show, As for as the scumbag thieves that stole 4 guns, securitiy must be severly lacking there. Defintiely not a gun show I would want to attend.

    A buddy and I had a table at one a few years back. The unbridled stupidity we had to deal with was enough to make a man lose all faith in humanity.

    I hit the gun shows quite often in Louisiana between 1980 and 2000 when they were still great.
    Made a few between 2000 and 2010 but by then they had fallen off quite a bit.

    I agree. Now days, one can find better prices elsewhere like online or from local dealers than at gun shows. Years ago it was the reverse but not these days so I have stopped going to gun shows in the past few years.

    Why are you making fun of State Farm insurance and what does it have to do with this thread?
