Crowd is huge. Line wraps around the parking lot. Small anti protest on corner.

This is likely the last show there since the anti-liberty statists have voted to ban the show.

I will try my hardest to never spend another dime in that city

Was there early left early. Not much to see. If you needed ammo it was there. Reloading components- none. All I got was a couple of pistol cases.

The protesters were more noisy than the pro 2a crowd. We were civil. We always are....

When I got there there were only 4 protesters, maybe 3 more when I left, and a couple of cops was yelling at two of them who were being belligerent over something. Loons.

I do feel somewhat bad, I got there at 8:30, was in the back of the back entrance line and was told ten minutes later that I had to enter the front entrance because I had a weapon. But the guy also noticed I was handicapped and told me to go in the front....almost makes me feel guilty...then again I wasn't buying .223 or any high demand products, so, eh. So got out there fairly quick, as I was looking for reloading components and a holster.

Got there around 815 and left at 10. It was easier to walk around and check out the tables because everyone was in line for ammo which was priced at market value. 556 was going for 360 for a case of 500. Picked up a gen 4 glock 30 for a really good price so I'm happy and my gen 4 collection complete

Practically the same as a gun store. Only difference is that they had ammo to sell

It was a pain to get into the parking lot when they block off the left turn lane to the lot and a sign saying that the lot was full. Went down the street and made a u-turn, drove into the lot and immediately found a spot. Many more spots were available. I just think it was the city of Glendale harassing the show by blocking the lane and posting "lot full" signs. Lots of media and a few "looney tunes" at the corner. Vendor selling rebuild mags one first floor towards the front had decent prices. Strip lowers were in abundance.

$38 for 500/rd Blazer .22 That I did get, though I feel ripped off by it in a way (not blaming necessarily the seller, distributors are charging more too)

Extremely busy, pretty much from the time the show opened until an hour or so before closing. People were buying ammo, more than anything else. Gun sales were pretty normal for this show, and this market.
