Not me. Last two times I was there it was a complete waste of time and $8. I already have all the WW1 rifles and tactical clothing I need.

I was there today. Got a couple bottles of pepperspray for the lady, and a real nice Remington 1903A3 for 575 bucks. The other ones i saw were 700+.
CWS had some nice stuff, for some nice money. 1927 Thompsons, a Galil for i think 800 or 900. PRK had a few Saiga 12s. Mucho dough. Mini uzi type pistols also. All in all, not to bad.

I went today and this was nothing compared to the Cow Palace shows. I pretty much wasted gas, parking fee, and entrance fee for nothing. I'll probably limit myself to Cow Palace shows for now unless SJ has something big going for it.

Im kinda opposite, by the time i pay for bridge toll, gas, parking at Cow palace, 10-20 bucks to get in at the Cow Palace, I just paid for shipping through the internet. JMO though. I parked at the Med building for free just east of the S.J. show. That alone payed for the 2 bottles of pepperspray.
But hey, everyones different.

I was at The Gun Vault today and met someone there who just got back from the gun show with an upper. Not sure what brand but I guess he payed $800.

Compaired to pasted SJ shows, this one had more people and gun vendors. Its not the Big Show or the Cow Place, but it was a gun show. And money was exchanged.

just got back myself.
i was a baaaaaad boy :D
spent an awfully lot of money @ PRK.
the SJ show is typically not so good but this one was leaps and bounds better than the last one i went to a year or so ago.
CWS and PRK were doing lots of business.

They need to get PRK a better spot! I was bummed cause FED and Drickle have better builds IMO and they were stuck WAAAYYYY in the back. Thats BS!

Oh well, I wish my bank account will let me spend like I want too.

Were the Vector optics people there?

I didn't look at their stuff at the Cow Palace because I thought it was airsoft stuff.

Now I see that they have two models I might want but I want to check them out before I put any money down.

PRK is new to this show - All the old timers get their "pick" - As they do more shows - They'll be able to secure better spots - But really though who cares because they'll draw a crowd anyways -

I went yesterdsay, parked at the Church/School next to the fairgounds for $5.00 and saved another buck for the entry fee by using the online coupon. I found a new mag extension for my Winchester 1300 for $40.00, I also picked up some 00 Buckshot and some .40 cal ammo. As expected alot of other items were overpriced, but $ was still changing hands regardless.

Just think of it as supporting The Nordykes' and when the 9th rules in our favor on the 'Nordyke' case, you can say you stood by them during the 'dark' days. :thumbsup:
