I've been to that show in tulsa, it's big!!! Used to be a good one for ammo, the smaller ones seem better for guns.
But i have'nt been to a gun show in a few years. When i decide what i want i have the wife call untill we find it then we go get it. You can spend a lot of cash at a show just getting in and something to eat and drink.
I see your point. I dont plan to buy a Glock 26 or something else rather common with know prices. I'm looking for something unique, like an AR-15 upper that shoots .410. I'll probably just look at all the eye candy and get a corn dog.
