There was a calguns booth at Rahaages/turners show again this year. They had a lot of stuff at the booth.

I seriously doubt I want to see your tramp stamp.

I'm not going to the gunshow. Budget is tight this month, and it just isnt really worth it.

If you do go, West End Gun Club might have a booth too. Stop by and say hi. Anyone in the IE area should consider a membership there.

Yeah....you're right. Where's the fun in going and fondling cool guns, checking out all kinds of gun related accessories and hanging out with like minded people.

Way too crowded today. People are very proud of their stuff judging by the prices. But people were buying everything.

There was a bazillion people there. Miwall had 3 huge displays, and LAX had 2. Lots of ammo, but none of it was really a good deal.
The Calguns booth was way cooler than the ATF's. They didn't even have bourbon, cohibas or guns. False advertising...

The 9mm reloads were 190 per thousand i think it was $200 after taxes with metal ammo can. I bought it at the tent outside in the middle. The place was PACKED!!!! And towards the end most were out of the more common bulk ammo. Got to see the calguns booth and picked up my sticker. Nice to meet you guys there.

Just talked with show management after the show had closed, they told me that this show is on track to shatter the all time highest attended crossroads show ever!!! this includes the SAR Show. 11,000 came to the show today alone. and there were a couple times i was behind my table surrounded by a sea of people, where it felt very claustrophobic.


Cant wait for SAR next weekend, it is going to be INSANE!!!!

So many people at Costa Mesa Gun Show...tried to find refuge at Riflegear which had a 10 person wait! Looks like 2012 will be the year for our shooting sports sales!
