I have found the show lacking lately. Same stuff, different tables.
Prices suck. Walley World beats any vendor there.
You get your exceptions. Few and far between.
I still can find good deals on some knives, some accessories, but mostly not any more.
I went to 3 different Walmarts this Sunday and picked up 1,000 rounds of 9MM for 9.47 per box. Winchester and Federal 50 round White boxes. FMJ 115grain and 124grain. Most were 115grain.
2 boxes first store, 3 boxes 2nd store and last store, no limit and all I could afford was another 15 boxes. They still had at least another 20 boxes or so.
Can't get that kind of deal at the show anymore. Even the gas used was less than the show entrance fee. Straight shot to all three stores via I225 and I70.
The first store was strange cause some sheriff from Montana was down visiting and they have no limit on purchases for LEOs. He bought every last box of 22LR and all the 9mm except for the last 2 boxes. I got those. Gosh.
