I agree that i miss the days when gun shows were only about guns. However, with that said, I also understand that the gun show organizers and venues are having a tougher time getting the table space filled. If they don’t at least break even, they are going to stop the shows altogether. So which is better…putting up with some BS window covering booth and beef jerky and seeing gun tables or no gun shows?
Love gun shows.
Couldn’t agree with you more. I think showing respect to everyone at the show should be #1! Take care brother, God bless!
Re: windows, roofs, gutters. I just tell them “I’ll notify my landlord”. 😂
Do you really think we are a bunch of idiots. Your opinion sucks!
I miss the gun shows from the 90’s/early 2000’s. Good selection and fair prices. Today’s gun shows? Poor selection, rude/arrogant sellers with grossly over-priced guns. I have much better luck at my LGS and I don’t have to pay an entry fee.
I haven’t been to one in 15 years because they mostly consist of the same overpriced merchandise at each table and online shopping usually offers you more options.
#1 rule. Don’t go to the gun show in the first place. These fools upcharge like 20%. Go to your local gun shop, and let these people know that it’s not ok to try and rip people off just because you bought a table. Flame me all you want, but these gun shows are absolutely out of control. I’d definitely buy beef jerky at the show, rather than a 800 dollar Glock 19
There are many good points made here. I wholeheartedly agree with the "don’t pay too much" rule, and your point about the non-gun products taking up more and more space at these shows is so true, I have seen this myself. Good advice about the "don’t buy the first gun you see"- there may be more than one dealer with the same thing and there can be a significant difference between each seller’s prices. Unless it’s really rare, like you said, you don’t have to jump on it.
Walking around Academy Sports I feel like they’re prices are gun shows mark up compatible these days. $50 for a box of .357 mag what in the world are they thinking 🤔.
I usually don’t buy at Gun shows unless a special rare item, I use Gun shows to play touchy feely with item them buy local if possible
Know the current normal pricing, very important.
I’m going to the Indy 1500 in a few weeks. Unfortunately I’m probably not going to I have the $$ to buy anything since I fell 20’ deer hunting and broke my neck my back my right wrist and my pelvis in 3 place and haven’t worked since 10/05/22. But I’m about to be released 1/2/23 and I’m going to the show 1/7/23. Although I did get a new sig p365x macro last week so maybe an optic if anything
top 4 gun show gripes:
How much is this?… " How much do you want to pay? "
Mr. Tacti-cool and his jackbooted buddy.
Put the damn Nazi crap away. The gun community doesn’t need you to display the war relics.
Why doesn’t anything have price tags on it?
What would you say about selling wildlife related stuff? Like whiskey glasses with ducks or geese on them or stuff like that?
Jesus loves a 45acp to the chest and head (sarcasm)
Nicely put, Mark. Most of the people at gun shows who are rude and arrogant have very little knowledge of firearms but they want to be the tough guy, so funny. The one impulse buy for me, Bren Ten stainless 10mm pistol.
This is really helpful. I’m going to my first gun show and really don’t know what to expect.
Most of the list is applicable for the entirety of life…
Leave a gun show empty handed?? AHHHH!!!!! (Really is good advice}:
great advice that most people know but some don’t remember!🇺🇸
#1: not buy a gun 😢#2 refer to #1
Passed up A 44/40. Rusty Colt. 125$. Wish I would have baught it now
I can relate to your last statement about gun stores having good days on the day of a gun show. I was looking for a full size Taurus G3 at a gun show a while back. No one had one, or if they did they were way over priced. Left the show empty handed and a little disappointed. I decided to go to the BX at Dyess AFB (I’m retired AF) before going home. Lo! And Behold! The gun department had just got in a G3 and had it at a REALLY good price. Snatched that puppy up then and there. Another of my favorite gun stores in town was doing brisk business that day as well. Got some good deals on ammo for the G3 from them.
The number 1 worst thing you can do at a gun show, is show up to one in the first place.
Rule 10 is a lie 😂
There used to always be a private dealer that dressed in suits. He looked super sketchy like he’d sell his grandmother. They had to start hiring security for the parking lot because the shows are always in the worst Areas.
Had a vendor one time rudely tell me “You just saw me safety check the gun before I handed it to you”. He didn’t like that I did a check myself. I handed him the gun and walked away.
I had my friend get in the middle of a sale between me and another..by asking the seller if the gun had any sentimental value to him…. because his dad bought it for him years ago, trying fuck up my buy….
There is no safe direction at a crowded event like a gun show. Just saying.
I see the Wanenmacher show in that video. Used to live so close I could stand on my roof and see Expo Square. Just went in April and was really unimpressed that it has almost entirely turned into a collector show with very few dealers of new stuff.
Yes for #4
These are all common sense.
Went to a gun show with my wife a number of years ago and had a guy peddling electric massage guns grab me to demonstrate how it works. Told him we got two already and didn’t need anymore solely on the principle of not causing a scene at the gun show but man it was annoying having to put up with that especially with it being her first show.
Just on the non-Gun items… Their prescence does make it easier to justify going to my Wife… the "Look, I got something for you too"
All guns are loaded,!!
Back to not having other vendors at a gun show. I almost agree with that 100 percent. Except for the gun shows in my area always have some of the best food and baked goods I’ve eaten. So I would say keep the food get rid of the fools. I love your channel,the content is awesome!
Gun shows aren’t what they use to be. If I wanted to over pay for an AR I’d go to the local pawn shop.
Do take a shower before you go to the gun show.
I think the worst thing is buy something at the gun show since everything is overpriced.
Sorry but I disagree with the nice people part. Every gunshow I meet AT LEAST one person who think you are stupid for owning or not owning X gun and will proceed to bully you for it. There’s a lot of “I’m better than you” mentality in the gun community
Stoped going to the gun shows. Most of the sellers are way to uptime the price gouging is out of control. The crowds are ridiculous no thank you. I can still buy from my local shop. Or order most everything online and not deal with the headaches.
People are great at gun shows, but becareful they will take advantage of you on prices.
Sounds like used car salesman.
Touch anything at a gun show be sure to wipe your fingerprints off the firearm or knife especially in NY.
This guy lied when he said somebody shot a shotgun inside at Tulsa…. Guns have to be tied inoperable to enter the facility
I have to take partial issue with the notion of never touching without asking. I will make a reasonable effort to ask a proprietor before picking up a gun from his table, and I always replace it exactly how I found it. Rare and high dollar items are obviously a different story, but at a crowded table I’m not going to wait while he engages other customers and performs a 20 minute NICS check for a buyer, just to ask whether I can pick up a Glock 19. Sellers who are that particular about run of the mill, mass produced guns in their inventory really shouldn’t be peddling their wares in a gun show environment.
First thing to do…..find the beef jerky table.
For about the past 3 years the #1 thing you can do wrong at a gun show is going to one.
First rule of gun handling.. Always assume the gun is loaded until you yourself check the gun and make ABSOLUTELY sure the gun is unloaded and even then.. treat it as though it is still loaded. And NEVER point ANY gun regardless of what gun it is.. at anything you don’t intend to destroy.
