    Pima county fairgrounds gun show/Tucson Jan. 4-5

    Who's going?

    I'll have a table, a few things for sale. Always shopping.

    Look for the Sharps and Remington sporting rifles on display, not for sale. But if you have one to sell bring it by.

    Hope to see you there.

    Take care, Duane

    I may go, it's a 10 min drive. But I avoided it for about 10 years once they forced you to pay for parking out in a field, then walk 400 yards to the show entrance when there are tons of parking spaces right in front of the building. Oh, and it's a classic "gun show" with 50% of the tables not gun related - jerky, glasses cleaners, flashlights, indian jewelry, coins, baseball cards. And many of those gun table are like you say: people set up looking to buy from the yokels that walk in with a gun for sale, displaying guns not for sale, or with ridiculous prices. I usually see 6 or 8 tables that are not black gun dealers or non-gun sellers. Then about 10 more tables that have less than 6 guns, along with a bunch of other items. Entrance fees goes up and up each year for all that.

    It's not the gun shows of my youth. But I do occasionally go and buy a gun from some dejected seller.

    I've been wanting to go, havent been to a show in probably 15 years. I used to work with a regular seller and I mentioned I never see any kind of "deals" at the shows. He laughed and told me you'll never find a deal at the tables, the pros set up the night before and buy up anything a person selling off a estate. And when they see guys walking in, they pretty much spy out and deals walking in. He was saying basically the real deals are found standing in line seeing what people are carrying in to sell.
    It was fun to look at a lot of different guns in one place though. jim

    I'll be there as usual at my "regular" table... walk in the door, turn right and I'm the 3rd or 4th table against the wall. I don't have much to bring this show, but will be sharing the table with my buddy who always has a good selection of S&W revolvers for sale.

    Bill, good luck at the Yuma show.

    AZ and Jim I hope to see you there, I know cheap Chinese crap jerky ruin a gun show but I just ignore it.

    Russ, you have the finest of firearms, I'll be over to visit.

    Take care, Duane

    I wish I could say I would be there. But I'm up in Payson and won't be down that way until the 7th.
