The Walther, Glock, Beretta, and Ruger LCR's aren't to badly priced. Perhaps about 50 over on the G19. I'd say 50 bucks over what I would pay for an LCP9 with laser, 349 over what I would pay for a LC380, 800 to a grand over what a Colt AR is worth.

I have no interest in Nylon 66's, or Sigs.

That's pretty much what I've been seeing but I would have jumped all over that Sig P938 for $76 bucks. :tongueout:

LOL - thanks and no problem. Glad to see they are starting to show up. I am looking for the new PPQ M2 with five inch barrel to show up soon also.

I went to one here in NY. Worst show ever. 11/2 hour wait to get in and everything way overpriced. Marlin .44 lever for $1K. Mosin Nagants $350. Just disgusting. Nothing worth buying.

Had a gun show in Charlotte today. I saw on the news the traffic on the interstate was backed up for a mile on the exit ramp. Said they had to get extra police for security. Also stated the building was at full capacity and they had to limit how many people were going in. Sounded like it was a real madhouse.

Sooner or later, the scarcity of ammo and the inflated prices for it will kill gun sales.

What good is a handgun with an empty magazine?

Yep I was at the one in Charlotte today. They announced over the intercom that the fire marshall shut the admissions until more people left.

Got there around 9am and it was retarded packed. Had to stand in line while it was snowing. Needless to say there weren't many deals. Two of my friends picked up a bitone XDM for $600 and a M&P 9c for $500. Nothing to write home about but they won't lose sleep with what they paid.

Honestly I wouldn't bother going as its so packed. Had a couple friends show up after I did and leave after seeing the line lol. I'm sure its not worth going to most gun shows across the nation until things die down.

Saw the Walther PPX for $399, thought that was pretty interesting. I also saw a Sig P224 and was surprised by how compact it was. I thought it would be bigger than it actually is.

The "beauty" of HK. The guns and mags were both overpriced, and continue to be so.

Three weeks ago at the Greensboro NC gun show. 22lr were the hot item. Fed. 550 bulk packs were $70.

Forgot to mention, a guy was selling coffee cans of mixed .22 lr for $100. Loose handgun ammo .32 up to .45acp $1 to $2 each. Not collectible stuff, just individual Winchester white box. Just think 50 rounds of .45 $100.......

Then the box of 100 .45 rounds I saw for 80 was somewhat of a "bargain" yesterday but the individual 50 round boxes of .22 for $15 each were a bit overpriced.

Ouch. I haven't been hit that hard here yet. I got some 9mm PMC for gulp, $15 a box and Fed XM193 for $9 a box while I was in picking up a transfer, but that's a bargain to what I see reported a lot on here.

(.45 was $22-ish a box depending on brand.)

Like I've said about antique malls... People don't know how rich they are until they see prices on "their" stuff in these places.

Many of the gun/ammo buying people in this panic, have created the problem by allowing themselves to be gouged.

The other thing that was really funny to see was the number of people buying crossbow pistols and tactical style tamahawks. There was a woman in her late sixties buying a battle axe.

Almost forgot. The guy selling reloading supplies told one of the people there he had blown up his Ruger Super Redhawk .44. I couldn't believe he was stupid enough to triple load a .44 mag, and then tell his customers about it.

I've been to two here in Alabama in the past month, everything for the most part was overpriced compared to a year ago.

The belle of the ball for me was a Savage Mark II .22LR with threaded bull barrel for 269 out the door, have another thread about it here so won't get too carried away. After two trips to the range and the addition of a bipod it is just as accurate as my .17HMR at 100 yards, both rifles better than I am.

At the one in south Alabama, I got there an hour before the doors opened and was within the first 50 through the door. A dealer came with 25k in 9mm and was sold out in two hours. They had FMJ and JHP for 14.00 per 50 (reloads) and new casing for 16.00, limit 10 per customer. I got the last 350 rounds of FMJ reload.

I am embarrassed to admit I paid 60 each for two bricks of Remington Golden Bullet, seems to be the best ammo for my wife's Ruger SR-22. I have some other bricks with the price tag still on them, 19.95 two years ago.

There was one dealer selling 5.56 at $49 per 50 round box, am proud to say that afternoon they still had as much as they showed up with, not too many people falling for the hysteria.

I have to say, at both shows, while shoulder to shoulder these were the most polite and courteous folks you would ever want to see. At the one in north Alabama there were 4 protesters with signs, surrounded by probably 10 uniformed LE. Nobody gave them a second look, as they were relegated to a corner of the parking lot away from the front door. I only noticed them because they were close to where I parked when I brought out a few purchases to put in the truck.
