I got in line at the entrance to the show at 8:45. I got in around 10:20 and got in line for ammo immediately, and my buddy got in the other ammo line. After 2 hours we were still at least an hour from the front so I had another friend wait in my line and went to check stock and prices. After seeing Wolf .223 being the cheapest and still $249 for 500 rounds I gave up, especially after seeing the 500 round limit for sales on it. Found two guys selling 1000 rounds of Federal 5.56 ammo for $950, and another guy selling it for $20 per box of 20, nice.

I then went looking around and found an AR lower parts kit for $200 and an 80% AR lower for $225. I then realized I didn't have enough lube to buy anything on my list so I just bought some pink magpul stuff for my girlfriend and called it a day. I was just sad to see the gouging going on.
I voted against Obama before it was cool.

It looks just plain beastly and the extra heft up front does help manage recoil a bit better. Plus, an angel told me that when God called JMB to heaven it was to build him a full rail 1911!
