    I think I'm averaging a gun every three shows or so. Today except for that PC and a weird retro bushy build that only fixed handle fetishists like me would appreciate I can't say I saw anything that I would consider a deal, whether on things I was interested in or not. I was hoping to find an ok to good deal on a 9mm P239 or M1 Carbine but alas it wasn't to be. Did get a pair of skinny handguards really cheap so it wasn't a total waste, and every now and then I get a deal like a $300 P07 or somesuch that makes up for the less stellar trips.

    $12 vs. $10 and walking away, gun people are cheap, very cheap.

    Haven't had much luck at the shows recently. I'll wait and see if they get better before returning.

    Picked up an ace conversion kit in the box - before I realized how much mags for it are

    Gun seller next to my booth is selling out and plans to give up the FFL after the inventory is all gone.
    Sold 1 gun at cost and 4 at a loss. He has mostly AR's, but did sell a Gen4 Glock today.

    Foot traffic was down today, our sales were not what we were hoping for!
    Did turn a friend onto a semi-auto UZI receiver that I saw on another friends table.
    Gent near me had a few barreled kits, and a good selection of FAL, L1A1 and barrels.

    There's also a table with a new Ruger PC for $485 that I had real trouble turning down.
    Are down for splitting the cost of buying our own hand stamp? We could stamp peoples hands in the parking lot for $5.
    Sure its easy to copy the emblem. Its not like the staff really check the details when going back in. Down side would be you couldn't use it right at 9am as that might raise suspension.

    Well, the Denver Post had a review of the show:

    The reporter, Sam Tabachnick, seemed turned off by the firearms part of the show, and was happily impressed with the sales of succulents, scents, and spices.
    I hope he paid his $12 and wasn't a guest of the show.

    One of the comments after the article that set the tone for me:
    "As guns become more and more passe, maybe their proponents are coming to feel their sensitive and feminine side."
    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.

    And if you decide to waste $12 going to a crappy indoor flea market, which is what the Tanner Gun Show has deteriorated into, make sure to get your money's worth by stopping by and visiting 'Dan, the AK Man' at his table for some lively conversation. He doesn't have fruity candles or spices or 'succulents', but you may be able to pick up a variety of Asian, Russian, or Eastern European banana clips.
    Hahaha

    I first stopped to chat with Dan back in probably 2012. I thought he was just hyping things up for business, but holy shit, the more I listened to him, the more certain I was he believed what he said.

    Plenty of fruit and nuts in the mix if you were near Dan.

    He certainly didn't have an exclusive on character. Very eclectic bunch that were regulars there. Working the show was always a hoot.
