I'm always there, selling knives, swords, EBR accessories and Evil Pink Rifle accessories for my little girl:D and spending all my profit on more guns.

Stop by and say hi. I'll be signing my new books.

Wish I could Go!

Fell in the Bath tub and broke my *&%$# leg.

Madmike: Loved Freehold and Hero, both Great books. I look forward to reading the rest of your books in the near future.

I had no idea we had a celebrity here! I've been reading SF for longer than I want to admit. Discovered John Ringo a couple of years ago and your books through him.

Maybe i'll be mobile for the next show and come by for a signed copy.

Who thinks that the Indy 1500 isn't near as great as it was only a couple of years ago? I went to the last one and could not find what I considered to be a good deal... Am I off base here?

Hi Clint,

You are right, it is about 1/2 the size it was years ago. Still the biggest show around here though.

I agree the "1500" may not be the way it was a couple of years back this next "1500" is in the Blue Ribbon Champion Buildings so it will be a larger show than usual. And if the deals seem fewer and farther in between it's still one of the best places to look for a bargain with alot of the dealers and vendors in one location.

Hi Clintpup,

YOU make the deals. Everybody buys at the same price. If you find 2 sellers that have what you want tell them you are serious and go back and forth between then. I ALWAYS get a better price this way

I made it to the show. I got an FEG Hi Power and an H&K USP 9 compact. I saw Mike's booth but did not get a chance to say hi.
