Please let the Saxet Show Come back to San Antonio!

So today, I decide to go the the 'gun show' at Live Oak. Ugh:

1. Lots of pseudo country art work. Native America, t-shirts with big Flags and Eagles.
2. Jerky!!
3. Coins
4. Bins of crappy parts and screws and bolts!

and

5. Incredibly over priced guns. At Saxet, you could get a decent and below gun store price on most standard new items.

Two examples - a SW 542 for $450 ish. A Taurus Beretta 92 clone for $700.

Good God! Just get in the car and go to Academy 10 minutes away. You don't find Glock 19s there for >$500.

I heard one parts vendor say this show sucks and he's not coming back.

So will Saxet make it? Why don't they use the Live Oak center?

Bah - have to go to Austin for that show from now on.

I choked on the $525 WASR-10 I saw there, but there was a Russian SKS for $275 that I wished I could have picked up.

The Alzafar place is off 1604, west of 281 about 1 or 2 exits.

Went to the Alzafar show - at least they had some guns. It was ok and a vast improvement over that Live Oak debacle.

The dealers said that Saxet is having trouble getting the new space cleared out but working on it.
