Hey. The place was packed Sat. & Sunday. As soon as 1000s left over the day, 1000s were waiting to get in. I had a great time. One thing we did notice in the parking lot as we were leaving, a HPD Cop was,imo, filming license plates on autos parked.

I also went to the gun show. I enjoyed the time, but I also noticed the price of assault guns were up nearly 100% over the last year. I wonder why?

You can blame to current Idiot-In-Chief for that. The cheapest AR-15 I saw on Sunday was $1900. And that's for a rifle that normally sells for $750-800 new. Even the cheap chinese made SKS rifles, which you used to be able to get below $200 were going for $800. I was looking for a semi-auto .22cal rifle on Sunday, and the cheapest one I could find was a beat up privately owned one that normally would be sold for about $80. The seller was asking $250. Bass Pro was just selling a similar .22cal rifle NEW for $149 last week. People have lost their damn minds.

There is another show this weekend at the Norfolk Scope. If you want any ammo, you better get there early on Saturday. Last weekend at Hampton, most of the ammo dealers didn't come back on Sunday because they had sold out Saturday.

The only hope of getting an AR for a decent price is to wait until the final few hours of the last day, hopefully it won't be sold and yes, they do knock down the price. About the cheapest gun you'll get is a darringer just under $200.
If all else fails and you are a 'new' gun looker, try a pawn shop. Never buy a 9mm Jennings or .22, they jam up on you. Used gun need to be tried at a range.
