Anyone go to the RK gun show over at Chilhowee Park today? Curious what the turnout was like! Thanks

I stopped by yesterday and it was jam-packed. Very very different from the first (and last) show I went to last year. My son and I drove over about 1:30 and there was a significant line waiting to get in. We left to run some errands and came back around 3:00, the line was gone but it was shoulder to shoulder inside. We stayed long enough to pick up some primers and powder, take a lap around about half the tables and left.

On Friday the cars were backed up in the street trying to get in.

It was packed from 1000 to 1500.

Lots of EBRs being carried around with X+$500-$1000 above pre Sandy Hook prices. Lots of EBRs being sold at tables at X=$1000 pre Sandy Hook. Lots of people buying them.

Ammunition trade was rapid. Magazine trade was rapid. MagPuls were going for $30-$35 instead the $15 pre Sandy Hook price.

Thanks guys! Took the chance and went at opening this morning. Best show experience I've had yet as far as the "crowd" experience. By 10 it was starting to crowd up a bit, happy to have been going. At least the powder I wanted was there for the having... primers were in very good supply, lots were still bringing in all types of arms for sale. Only thing I didn't find was brass. My usual supplier there was down to a few pulled 308.

If you saw a fellow in a hideous orange Hawaiian shirt standing behind cases of knives, that was me!
