Just got back from the show. Ammo was flying out the door, but when I left they still had decent supply.

Most of the usual vendors, SHAMWOW ftw!

Parking horrible, crowded, lots of grumpy vendors. All in all a good time.

Same as above but the big ammo guys were running out but the guys with ammo in the back still had a supply.

I saw a lotta empty pallets where ammo once was. And biggest crowd I have ever seen there. CWS had a lot of complete rifles but just a couple POF uppers.
Overall, business seemed brisk.
My best buy was 600 primed LC .223 cases ready for reloading (with a military ammo can) for $65.

New brass, but not shiny. A less-attractive patina.

I guess the Glendale gun show is good if you go the first few hours of the first day. I was there today right when they opened. Miwall had a few boxes left of the most popular calibers. Ammo bros had boxes of reloads. CWS had the hottie attendant in their booth :)

was there sunday right at open. Miwall had basically nothing. pretty much nothing for my 10/22. bought some ammo bro reloads and a steel target for my 22 so i didnt waste a trip. everythign seems so way overpriced. was gonna pickup some cleanign supplies, but can easily find the stuff online for much cheaper

AlliedArmory

The ammo was good Saturday morning...I got there first thing.

Holy crap, some of the Vendors were out of their minds in pricing. 200 bucks for a Stag LPK? Seriously?

WTF on the LPK price!!!!!!!!!

true, $265 for a Stag BCG, and $135 for a Stag Butt Stock....

just made me sick when I heard the prices.

Not to mention a few of the vendors were selling Saiga 308 for $699 .

AKs and ARs , none were less than $1000 (1200-1900). They were really surprised when at the end of Sunday only 3 AKs were sold and they had 40. Geeee, I wonder why!

.40 reloads between $100-$120 for 500.
.45 reloads between $130-$150 for 500.

That's just pure insanity!

The only decent thing I saw was a Ruger 10/22 from Ammo Bros. going for $219 . Other than that it's a total waste of time at gunshows now.

Went by late Sunday afternoon.... Miwall = ghostown.... tables merely serving as a resting area for guys to rest their butts on, not to mention storage area for empty palates... complete opposite of the Ventura show a week ago which had plenty of A.

Miwall did have a lot of ammo Sat morning...but that stuff was selling like hotcakes. Were there any 200 dollar LPKs left? ;)
