    I am not a suspect! I am an alleged suspect, thank you very much.

    Yes, it was slow, and it was hot & muggy outside but for once the Showplace itself was quite comfortable. The VCDL table did a lot of business answering questions from folks who had recently moved to Virginia from occupied territories, and the :what:looks of amazement at what was"allowed" - to use their words -were priceless.

    stay safe.

    Plenty of ammo. Prices ran the gamut.

    Got there at the opening. First time at the Richmond show for me. I stopped by the VCDL booth that was doing very well.
    I was impressed. Dealers/patrons were much nicer and more open to haggling (major attraction to these shows for me) than the Chantilly show.
    Prices were still pretty high, but getting better. Saw LOTS of Evil Black Rifles that were NOT moving so who knows :-)
    I think I'll be focusing on this show from now on and only attending the Chantilly show when I volunteer at the VCDL booth.

    It may have. I was in Walmart last night when they were putting out ammunition. No lines or wild eyed horders. No 45 ACP either:X
