Default Arizona gun show

Anyone going to Arizona gun show 20th and 21th to buy some Repair kits?

or maybe look for some 22LR ammo?

Are prices better out of state at gun show?

Not going. Wouldn't be surprised to see the .22LR front look just as bleak there though. They may have a lot but it'll go fast.

Sitting it out this time-recent Arizona shows have been no better than California shows for the most part.

Went last year. Worse than CA price wise. Check out AZ Firearms in Avondale or it might be Goodyear. Awesome military rifles. Valmets, BM 59s you name it. Always worth the drive.

Prices are the same throughout the country. If they weren't, they would self-correct quickly.

Prices and ammo shortage is national.
Went on a road trip to TX a couple months ago and every Walmart was bare of ammo (except the same oddball calibers you see in the cases here too) in the 3 states I checked. Every Mom and Pop shops little inventory they had left was overpriced.

So I doubt even though things are returning to normal that it would be any different out of state.

FWIW friends in Georgia say the run on ammo there is as bad as here. So many people have guns, it makes sense they'd be stocking up like everybody else.

The ammo is in short supply everywhere.The prices are the same as here.The only good thing they sell is rifle parts and high cap mags.I only go to the Phoenix Fairgrounds SAR show in December.

Last show I was repair kits were at least twice the price I could buy them for online.

I've never seen that many great deals at gun shows once you add in the extra cost of getting in the show. My best deals have always come from the for-sale section.

Was in a large gun store in AZ last month during a road trip. Rows and rows of AKs and stacks of 30 round mags everywhere, but ammo was in short supply. No 223 at all, very limited 308 and you were only allowed to purchase 1 box per caliber, per person.

I'll be there. I go to every show since my other house is out there. Prices aren't any better. Last show ammo line was ridiculous. Way worse then CA lines.
