Anyone been B4 and know the cost per round or gun?
I'm asking because I need to know how much cash to bring.
Is it like going to a bar for happy hour on Tuesday? Or like being the best man comping everyone at the strip club?

It used to be $1 for 5 rounds for the most part. Last year there were those that were $2 for 5 rounds so this year I would suspect that there are going to be many who do $2 for five rounds. If you want to shoot guns that have the expensive calibers like the 500 S&W then those are going to be $1 a round.

I guess they don't let you bring your own factory ammo? :rolleyes:

bring lots, $100 or so. the fun stuff ain't cheap, but it is always worth it.

get there EARLY so lines are shorter and temps are cooler and the guns don't break or run out of ammo. there is a line to get in even before they open.

run right to the bigger stuff, i.e., 500 S&W, .45-70 BFR, 454 casull, 460 Wby, .50 BMG, because that stuff is the most popular. the sig & S&W booths also pack out; ruger, taurus, marlin, beretta less so.

This may go without saying but for those that are not in the know...

You'll need to bring your eye/ear protection with you. If you are going but are not planning to shoot (or if you bring someone who is not) you should bring extra ear protection. Some booths have the foam ones for free and others charge a small amount but if you bring your own, you can put them in right away.

i bring about $250. every manufacturer charges diferently for different calibers. usually like 5 rounds for $2 on 223, or something like that. what gets me is bushmaster will be out there!

I went last year. Fun. I shot 25 guns in one day and scored a few freebies. I think at some of the boothes they have pins. At one booth, I scored an Otis cleaning kit for free. They also have some canvas bags hanging on a rack, Grab one of those to toss your crap in while walking.

last year on Sunday, Jerry M. did a shooting expo. DAMN FAST.

Am I the only one who is wondering why the spectators are charged admission to this event? When you think about it, Raahauge's is making out because they are getting people out there to see their operation; a potential money maker. And you know Raahauges is charging the vendors to set up their booths there. So they are making money off the gun manufacturers. Then, the gun manufacturers are also going to be getting sales from people who like their guns, etc. So why charge the spectator?

If Turners and the other gun shops around here started charging $5 to go into their stores and look at guns, would you pay it?

Don't get me wrong, I had fun shooting some of the guns I wanted to try out, but I still have a sour taste in my mouth from having to give Raahauges $10 to walk around on their dirt field. I would have much rather spent that money on ammo or refreshments.

Maybe it is to cover operating costs? Who knows, they might have higher insurance premiums during events like this.

There is a lot of work that goes into the event. All the fencing is rented and put up, the fields are mowed so people can actually park, extra port a potties are put in, all sorts of structures, platforms, walkways etc and repaired to look more presentable and handle the extra traffic. Staff has to be hired to man the gate, run supplies around, handle any equipment problems etc.

Plus Mike like any businessman is looking to make a buck. Can't blame him for that this is America. I don't know of many events like this in California so maybe $10 is not a whole lot to ask for all the effort that went into the event. But then again people will always complain.

beats the snot out of a movie, and all the money goes to the right folks.
