    Gotta talk to the menfolk.

    You know what I know. I can't find a website or anything much more than the announcement. I'm assuming its a 9-5 show.

    Went to the show today. Luckily I found street parking as the parking garage charged $10 an hour. Admission was $10 with the usual join the NRA get in free. No loaded guns inside with ACPD there to enforce it, also you could not leave with a gun unless you had been cleared by them. Inside was pretty empty, maybe 20 dealer and when they say antiques they mean it. Saw a few (4-5) 1911s and a M1 Garand as the most modern weapons there, everything else was older and pretty expensive. I'd say the average gun cost somewhere in the 4 figures. They said they have a date to do the show next september but all in all I'll probably pass.
