Thumbs up Crossroads Gun Show @ Del Mar, May 18-19th

I'm not sure if there's already a thread created for this; so if there is, please link it.

I purchased my ticket online to go to the "Crossroads of the West Gun Show" at the Del Mar Fairground (San Diego), May 18th - 19th. I figured it would be harder to fight my way through the crowds alone because it's going to be ridiculous like it was last year. I plan on showing up around 6:00am or even earlier, and waiting until they open so I get a good spot in line. Purchase tickets online and we won't have to wait in the ticket like and once they open we're in like flin. Some people will scoff at having to wait in line for 3 hours to get guns/ammo/reloading supplies but in this economic insanity IT IS WORTH MY TIME ONCE PER YEAR.

It's a lot better than trying to ammo/reloading supplies online right now which is virtually impossible and backorders are months off; not to mention having to pay $27.50 in haz-mat any time you order something "explosive".

So, who's up for meeting super early in the Del Mar parking lot? (I'm going to find out where the free parking is)...
Hell, I don't mind going at this alone but it would be so much more enjoyable going with people you can shoot the with while waiting for it to open. It's also A LOT easier carrying 100 lbs worth of product with someone helping
I really wouldn't like to go in a group larger than 5-6 people including myself so we don't have to fight over everything along with all the other shmucks.

So, I have a question about the gun show in Del Mar, my mom and I were going to go, we're both looking to purchase firearms towards the end of the year.

Should we buy our tickets in advance from the website?
And, is it worth it to just go and look around, like is it something fun to do or is it really just for purchasing with a lot of standing in line, whoever could answer this would be a right ol chap in my book.
Ayo, I'm a underage, gimme break!

Looking for: Tula SKS (non-tacticool)
Anything North Korea
Iz 240 Saiga in 556/223 or 762

Try your question in the SD forum. That Socal general forum doesn't get any traffic because people just select the actual region they are in.
