newbie from Oakville (south county).

Went to the show today...Parking was terrible, way over crowded, and prices too high.

Left and went down the street to Nassau and parked right in front, walked right up to the counter and picked up a new Judge ss ultra for $499. Significantly cheaper than any price at the show.

The goof-balls attending that Japanese anime show were amusing though.

The anime show was crazy. The few I saw was a girl dressed like a cat with ears and a tail, another girl was about 240 lbs wearing baby clothes with a pacifier, another guy was dressed as a superhero with tin foil and red tights. I really thought it was weird with that going on and all these people buying and selling real guns in the next room.

I haven't been to a gun show in many years and rarely go to any type of show.(Car, boat, motorcycle, or hunting and fishing) anymore. They all seem to be lame over priced with no deals to be had and if it wasn't for new and proto types. I would not be tempted to go to any type show again.

That said I went too my first pipe (tobacco smoking) show this year. And It was awesome filled with great people, prices, vendors and I really enjoyed it.

Hey guys here is a heads up for all the STL people. Check out this site. I stumbled across it last week.

Aparently the guy who created the site got tired of his gun postings on CL getting flagged. It is VERY new and the site needs some work but it looks like it could be a good resource for buying and selling guns.

I'm a newbie as well living out in Wentzville. Going to Nassau Sporting Goods today or tomorrow to pick up my first Glock 23. Actually, this will be my first handgun. Can't wait to get out and shoot it. I'm also taking the CCW class this weekend.

Love the site. Lots of good info.

So did you get your 23? Have you gotten to shoot it yet?

Yeah, I picked it up Friday from Nassau and went out Saturday afternoon and shot it. Only had 50 rounds of target ammo though. When I bought it on Friday, Nassau didn't have any target ammo so I didn't get to shoot it as much as I would've liked. Great gun though. I love it.

Logan shooting range

Was up at Logan yesterday shooting on my lunch break. And was talking to the Ranger. I was telling him how nice the place looked no trash, nothing sitting at have range with a billion holes in it. It turns out they clean the place up on Tuesday's at least I m pretty sure that's what he said. He told me you wouldn't beleave what they have taken of this range, car hoods, doors, clothes dummies, wooden crates, stuffed animals, all kinds of stuff. I guess it keeps the job interesting, he didnt seem to mind..........

Its still a crap shoot but seems to be getting better most places and caliber unless you any .380 or .45auto fairly priced that is.

Where are you located? I may have a couple of tips.

Anyone have a sight pusher around south county. Thinking I am going to order some new sights and would rather not beat on night sights.

I don't think there is alot of Missouri people on Glocktalk posting because most of them post over at www.missouricarry.com

Missouricarry.com does a good job and is a political force in this state.

Did you call other places? Try TopGuns in Imperial, Dunns in Pevely, Denny Dennis in Fenton or MidAmerica Arms on Gravois rd in Afton.

Not a lot of gun shops in North County or in the City. I consider those places ghetto, and anti gun. Obama won most of the votes in North County.

Cabelas is located in Hazelwood. However Hazelwood police are very anti gun and their chief when ccw first came out instructed his officers to confinscate any firearm for balistic evidence. I refuse to spend any money in Hazelwood.

Been to all at one time or another believe I have checked but If you get by and see som let me know

Pretty broad generalization. I would not know tho.

Ya I knew that and believe he has gotten sued since. I am from JC and my sheriff joined the truth squad. Freaking POS I will donate time and money against him

You can also call MidAmerica and see. A few years ago I bought a G34 and wanted to change the sights. I took it ti MidAmerica and one of the owners installed my new sights for free. I didnt even buy the gun or sights for him.

Just suggesting that so if you dont want to spend the money for a sight tool you could try a couple gun shops, see if they will do it.

Do you know who Otto is in Afton? He's a gunsmith, probably the best in the Midwest, maybe one of the better ones in the nation.

Im not sure of his prices though, but he does great work.

North STL County here. Grew up in South STL City. Former Ford Hazelwood worker. I buy, trade, and sell all of my gun business with Mike's Guns in Saint Charles. Cabela's did have tons of pistol ammo. Now its all gone and when its in stock there is a 2 box limit. But I did buy quite a few boxes of MagTech 9mm, 40 and 45ACP there before the big ammo rush. Cant find ANY SKS/AK ammo anywhere except online. I did buy my Glock 21SF at Cabela's on sale about year ago. Couldnt pass up the price.

Mike's Guns also sells Meprolight night sights for Glocks for around $80.00 tax included and he installs them for free. Does a damn good job too!

Did anyone go to the Machinist Hall gunshow this weekend? I couldn't make it and was wondering what the ammo supplies looked like there. How much for 9mm, .40, and .45
