    Who's going? I am thinking about going and browsing. I am just deciding whether or not I really want to fight through the "obama scare" crowd.

    EDIT: I know I spelled Hampton wrong :?

    I'm planning on going if I can convince the wife. She's finally getting her CHP and I need to start looking for her gun.:celebrate

    I want to go, maybe I will find some ammo. I'm not hoarding either. I'm trying to buy like 50 rounds a week or so.

    since I operate the VCDL table at every Hammpton show I'll be there too. I'd go anyway, just because. Haven't decided which gun to carry this time. I'll bring cash for reloading supplies. Can't have too many supplies. I like open carrying there. Well heck, I like open carrying anywhere!! I also like misspelling Hamppton.

    Nope!

    Lots of reasons. I have turnips to plant.

    It's always crowded there

    I can't decide between a 1911 Springfield or a Weatherby Vanguard (neither of which will be a good deal there)

    The wife and I will be there tomorrow. I'm not looking for anything in particular, but if there's a good price on a '73 Winchester in .45LC, or some good grips/holsters, it's worth the trip. I'll poke my head in at the VCDL booth as well!

    Probably something more in line with a basic GI model.

    Anyone know at what age they start charging admission for kids?

    If I can make it, I may have my 6-yr-old son with me.

    First time I've been to a gun show on Sat. Got there around 10:15 felt good because it was no real line for tickets. Got inside and it was crazy. I went thinking to buy .45 ammo and get my brother a bb gun to get him started young.Every BB gun my father asked them about they kept going about power and etc. One realized I was the buyer but my father was the picker so he gave a light discription.When it came to the .45 auto ammo I could not find any. One guy had some selling 20 rounds of hollow points for 14 or 15 dollars however the boxes were all white so I didn't know what exact ammo it was so I decided not to buy.

    I got there at 1030 and could not find any 9mm ammo either, georgia arms was out and there was that one guy selling some in white boxes, 21 bucks for 50 rounds, I ask him how it shot, and he tells me he does not shoot the stuff, but has good luck with it? So I passed. Gomy woman some 32 acp for her carry piece from georgia arms though

    It was a little busy, but me and my kids' stroller made good progress. The parking on the other hand....

    Went on Saturday afternoon. Saw a few handguns and rifles that fall clearly into the 'nice to have' category but nothing really jumped out and said "Buy Me!".

    The ammo (or lack thereof) was deplorable. I've never seen a gun show with so little ammo for sale.

    I came down with a terrible cold and I read on here that there was no ammo so I decided not to go. The main point of me going was to snag some ammo. Oh well

    Georgia Arms was out of 9MM and 45 ACP ball withing 20 minutes of the show opening. 357 Sig and 45 GAP went slower though. They sell 357 Sig Gold Dot for 21 dollars for 50 rounds.
