The last one I went to at the Fair Grounds was pretty weak. That's been YEARS ago though (like 7). I would have hoped that it would have improved, but I can't say for sure.

I have since seen what a busy gun show looks like, and I can say beyond a doubt that other cities I've been to have busier ones than Memphis does.

thanks SouthernGal. as i've not been in years (more than 15!), i'll check it out even if simply for edification. will report back this weekend if we go.

we're back. some major price gouging / inflated prices on most firearms. very few surplus/militaria arms compared to the hunting and handgun offerings.

i was hoping for cases of milsurp ammo in 7.62x39/54 but found none. mostly reloads and some by the box OTC stuff, triple-marked up from wallymart prices (think bricks of .22 LR for $24).

picked up some bdu's, a winter jacket, a few 30 and 40 round AK mags, and four brand new 40mm ammo boxes. BRAND NEW, perfect seals, etc.

entry was $8 per and there's a coupon available for $1 off each that you can print online here (http://www.gunshows-usa.com/rkshows.htm). overall ok and i'd go back again next year, but not at all what i expected. it WAS fairly busy but i'd rate the attendees as 80% "fudds", 10% mall ninjas, 10% thug wannabe's, 5% the rest of us. :)
