Thumbs down Gun Show @ OC Fairgroungs

I went w/ some buddies to the Crossroads gun show today, Friday 3/26, took an hour to get it. My buddies waited in line for ammo for 3 hours and were about 1/2 way through it when the decided to go to LAX instead. They paid lower price and waited to get in for 10 in. Not a whole lot to see at the gun show, this will be my last gun show, pretty weak not a lot to see gun wise, and a bunch of over price crap.

Unfortunately Reno gun shows are going the way of California. The last couple years have been getting bad.

HA HA, that's pretty much what i saw 15 years ago and stopped going. All kidding aside , if you are looking to buy guns or ammo, better off at a store selling guns.

FUD.

Lots of airsoft grade accessories, stun guns, and opportunities to acquire a ccw in every southwest state except CA. Get there early and you may see some higher end swap meet grade leather goods before it all gets snapped up.

I got an email response to a question I sent to MiWall asking about prices they were going to charge and even if they had any primers or powder. The lady replying from MiWall said they won't be at the gun show

I'm bummed...it always seemed like they were there no matter what.

Exclamation not worth the time

This is what to expect just to get it at the fairgrounds. Look closely the line wraps around the parking lot.

I love the folding dolly guy thinking it's 1985 again and he needsa CART because he was going to load up on all the cheap ammo! (sigh) I remember 1985. Good times.

The OC fair grounds have nothing to offer. Guns are over priced and ammo is just another can of worms. That Gun show always have the same sellers trying to sell their junk at premium prices, realistically I think that they set up tables just so they can brag about their stuff they will not sell. Every show it seemed like the gun tables were being phased out and were getting replaced with jerky, kitchenware, women's clothing and fake jewelry.

2016/2017 is when I stopped going.

I remember the shows in Pomona with the army jeep, people in realistic era period clothing and the black powder exhibition. People were friendlier and honestly were not just there for the $. I was happier back then too. : )
