    Good tips. I do the same thing. When I get there I speed thru on a survey lap, and make a mental note on where things are that I am interested in. Then I home in on those specific tables.

    was that a old gen crye plate carrier?



  3. Raúl De La Rosa on December 22, 2022 at 12:43 am

    That comment on the bag to bring along was something I hadn’t thought of and I’m looking to purchase my very firm firearm. I’ve used them before and know to respect them and all. It is time for now some self preservation, especially with it being no time like the present!



  4. Devil Dog on December 22, 2022 at 12:44 am

    I’m going to my first gun show but I’m not old enough to buy one yet. What are some cool things that they have their for people who are into guns but can’t get one.



  5. myron brand on December 22, 2022 at 12:48 am

    Good advice. The carry bag is very good price.



  6. Joseph LaBonte on December 22, 2022 at 12:48 am

    I’m planning on going to my 1st gun show Saturday so this is really very helpful thank you



  7. David Parton on December 22, 2022 at 12:49 am

    Awesome video, great comments by everyone! First time going to a gun show today over in Lacey, Washington put on by Big Top Promotions from 9am to 6pm. Looking for a good deal on a G19 or ammo and/or shotgun. I’m not sure I’ll be able to find the deal I am looking for since it is their last day. I am confident however, if you are looking for a good deal on an investment property or selling your home I can help you with that. Just look me up and I will help you get what you want in the time you want it; experience matters!

    "I’m just a person" lol made me chuckle.



  9. Washington Football Fan WGIL on December 22, 2022 at 12:53 am

    I’ve never been to a gun show. What about buying new guns? Are there deals on a Maverick 88 Batum? A Taurus TX 22? Just curious if there is and what might a deal look like?



  10. Bo Rasta on December 22, 2022 at 12:54 am

    There seems to be no good deals to me.



  11. Asheron on December 22, 2022 at 12:54 am

    boring video



  12. Derrick Nessmith on December 22, 2022 at 12:58 am

    Me personally I’ve never been to a gun show with the purpose of buying a firearm until he recently I’ve taken a little more interest in it and I myself and a good friend was both wondering and speculating about which is the best day to go the first day or the second day?? I had no idea me and him said well they probably put all the expensive stuff out first and they sell all that and we just went back and forth and I said well I’m sure some vendors save some of the better things for the second day but honestly without your video we had no idea but now we know we want to get there at the butt crack of dawn! So thank you for that sir!



  13. Chops on Top on December 22, 2022 at 1:00 am

    I grew up going to gun shows in Wichita and now I’m a Missouri resident in kc so I go to Springfield and kc shows! maybe ill see ya in passing im usually one of the guys walking around with a rifle on my shoulder with an obnoxious for sale sign taped to the barrel. Love the game and the unkonws of whats to be found on every table.



  14. Matthew Wynne on December 22, 2022 at 1:01 am

    It’s funny how the only time I’ve been to a gun show was around 2004, back when the only gun I had was a hunting rifle. I had been given the tip to make a quick round of the tables to get an idea of the best prices. I never felt comfortable buying a gun from a show because I worry about getting a lemon.



  15. TrilobitesRTasty on December 22, 2022 at 1:01 am

    That "New in Box" handgun at the gun show is actually a "Used in Box" handgun purchased from a retail gun store and then cleaned and scrubbed to look "New".

    I never went back to a gun show after I figured that out.



  16. Nothingood Inanger on December 22, 2022 at 1:02 am

    Bad advice on the way to your first show



  17. david sanders on December 22, 2022 at 1:02 am

    FYI: At all gun shows in America, BATF and State Police are taking pictures of all license plates in the parking lot. You will be in their data base for future use. Good luck.



  18. Robin Stewart on December 22, 2022 at 1:04 am

    I’d like to see shows limited to just firearm accessories and peripherals. If you already have your firearms, gun shows are boring. Many limit the number of venders selling accessories. Because of that, I simply stopped going to gun shows.



  19. DirtBike Dave on December 22, 2022 at 1:06 am

    I just sold a long gun at a gun show by carrying it around with a MAKE OFFER sticker on it. Only 4 people asked about it and I went back to the first vendor because he made the best offer.
    Also, I’ve gotten great deals in the final hour of the last 3 gun shows I went to. The sellers were willing to take a lowball, rather than pay the fees and not make the sale.



  20. Travis J. on December 22, 2022 at 1:09 am

    Great info I Loved both the gun show vids. You got a new subscriber in me.



  21. Angel Valle on December 22, 2022 at 1:10 am

    Nice wall !



  22. tony york on December 22, 2022 at 1:13 am

    ! additional tip that i learned at my first trip to Wannmacher, (sp) Take clothing for all weather potentials. Freezing your butt off in record cold Tulsa lines to get in the show puts a damper on the day



  23. raliegh hawkins on December 22, 2022 at 1:14 am

    I would like to get some information about a 1940 mauser 33/40 that I recently acquired.???



  24. Najm Gamer on December 22, 2022 at 1:14 am

    How much do you think a Zastava m70 AK with a foldable stock and foregrip would sell for?



  25. Benjamin Silva Castillo on December 22, 2022 at 1:15 am

    How difficult is to find a 303 British Lee Enfield like the one you have on your wall? How much is a good price for it? Nice videos!



  26. james moriarty on December 22, 2022 at 1:16 am

    Have a gun show coming in august in Arkansas,how do you find private sellers there



  27. Kiss It now on December 22, 2022 at 1:18 am

    There have not been any deals at gun shows in years. Biggest gun show tip is Don’t go



  28. Timothy Martini on December 22, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Great tip! I hope to attend one in the future. Unfortunately, every time I’m on a visit my ship always leave early. My only chance is really a drydock or wetdock layover for a week or two. I hope there is a Gunshow event going on when that happens.



  29. Peter Luu on December 22, 2022 at 1:20 am

    Dang it….i was going to use cryto….



  30. Scott G on December 22, 2022 at 1:21 am

    Wood guns warp



  31. Dictator Shawn on December 22, 2022 at 1:21 am

    Imagine having a semi auto M243



  32. Alex Hanely on December 22, 2022 at 1:22 am

    its the Garand Thumb reference for me



  33. Daniii 9000 on December 22, 2022 at 1:23 am

    So if I already know my state requires a ffl transfer and I’m going to a show outside of my state …..how does it work when i purchase a gun?



  34. Frank O on December 22, 2022 at 1:24 am

    If you buy multiple guns at a gun show but from different vendors does one background check work for multiple purchases or do
    You have to do a check at every stop ?



  35. headpainter1 on December 22, 2022 at 1:25 am

    Gun shows need to be guns ammo knives military memorabilia etc etc.. one of the last gun shows I went to had two tables of overpriced guns and every other table in the room was either Roofing or vinyl siding or jewelry or some other b*******. If I’m going to pay $10 to get in, I want to see guns guns and more guns.
    If I wanted to see flea market items I would go to a flea market.



  36. jasonkirkk on December 22, 2022 at 1:27 am

    Dude, waiting period, wtf. Come to Texas where we are free



  37. wdefghjuefh degtfthtgf on December 22, 2022 at 1:27 am

    There could be exceptions to the non gun items such a knives and memorabilia related to guns



  38. Mike on December 22, 2022 at 1:28 am

    Great video 👍🏽



  39. benanddebbie1 on December 22, 2022 at 1:29 am

    most of the good deals are purchased bye dealers before the doors open in the morning.your best chance at a good deal is watching the walk ins coming in the door, just don’t get caught as it is frowned upon.



  40. Chad Thomas on December 22, 2022 at 1:29 am

    Never thought about taking a cheap little duffel bag, good idea!



  41. Clint Mullins on December 22, 2022 at 1:29 am

    Are you here in Indiana?



  42. John Lucas on December 22, 2022 at 1:32 am

    I also have several items in my gun show bag. I keep a pen and small notepad, bore light, bore measure, magnet, magnifying glass, tape measure, small knife, a candy bar (for a mid-show energy boost), and these days, a spare mask+hand sanitizer.



  43. Travis J. on December 22, 2022 at 1:33 am

    Take notes of things you see that you want write it down or type it out on memo in cell maybe even snap a pic of it.



  44. Willie Rock on December 22, 2022 at 1:34 am

    Helped me to decide whether or not inquire about a waiting period with all these strict gun control bills , while out of state



  45. Love 2 Chiefs on December 22, 2022 at 1:34 am

    Ayy Missouri guy, last few ive been to in KC was very disappointed. Very few private vendors and everything way over priced.



  46. Travis J. on December 22, 2022 at 1:35 am

    Bring a bag!!! Great great tip.



  47. Jose Estrella on December 22, 2022 at 1:37 am

    Good tips thank you



  48. Vakaria on December 22, 2022 at 1:39 am

    I would be a first time buyer of any gun. I’ll be going with my sister and her husband, but I still want any advice I can get.



  49. Robert Paul on December 22, 2022 at 1:40 am

    And covid killed the gunshow. HHMMMM!!!



  50. Nunya Bizniz on December 22, 2022 at 1:41 am

    I am in California. I haven’t been to a gun show yet. Not new to guns, just never been to a gun show. We have the ten day waiting period here for gun purchases online or in gun shops. If you are making private party purchases at a gun show, is there still the requirement for the background check or the ten day wait to pick up the purchase? I have my regular FFL dealer to go to for online gun and ammo sales, but I am completely green when it comes to gun show sales and protocol.
