    Bring a .22 or pellet gun and beat the line at the firearm entrance on the right :)

    You know I mentioned that to a friend afterwards. I should have brought in my Smith snubbie. Didn’t think about it right then.
    Anyways, went to Greensboro last week so I’m good.
    If bored tomorrow may take a ride over.

    The only thing I have any interest in buying right now is a Mossberg Shockwave. Anybody know what they are going for at the show?

    Ditto what @JohnFreeman said. I left empty-handed, as usual. Seems like anything that's priced right is junk, and if it's not junk it's overpriced. Just my opinion.

    I went, mainly to meet up with two people to exchange brass. I got there at opening time and the line was longer than I have seen in a while. Didn’t really need anything, I did buy one box of primers, just because I was there. Dropped a $20 in the GRNC jar. Walked around with @Bullseye Baldee for a while, then left. Crowd wasn’t too bad, but the line was still long when I left. Parking lot was crowded, too. Oh, I did see ammo cans for under $10.

    I saw him Mister Rudder there. He was nice enough to give me some 38 Smith & Wesson brass for absolutely free. What a nice guy!

    You don't even have to have a weapon. The last two times I went I used that door gunless.

    Same here! Thanks for the brass, too. Hope you found all the powder and primers you were looking for.

    I might drop over tomorrow as a distraction. I don't need anything but, I've not been in a while and may run in to some friends.

    Great gun show today! Haven't seen one this crowded since Obama. Definite asses and elbows. No price gouging surprisingly! Huge numbers of cheap ARs, and tons of reasonable prices on just about everything. Awesome vibe overall. Picked up a few needed goodies to finish current builds, and some ammo I can't get so easily elsewhere.

    To be honest I think this was a great show, and I'm stoked there were so many people there. At least for the stuff that I specifically wanted to find, I actually got some pretty great deals.

    I kind of wish I bought the Remington 760 Woodmaster in .30-06 that I found for $380, lol. Nice leather case, great grain on the walnut, and had a really nice sling with an artful buck on it. I didn't like the scope or rings on it, but those can easily be changed out. I don't have any .30-06 guns though, and I'm the type who prefers to consolidate calibers, so I passed. I was glad to see someone who appreciated it, bought it, though. :)

    It's possible! It was right at the end of the show. I got to the show at 10:30 and didn't leave until 4:57, lol. I saw the guy walking out with it at the same time. But if y'all were shooting there after 5:00, it's certainly possible!

    Hi, they were not letting anyone inside at 9AM unless you had a firearm, told us we have to use the main entrance.

    There was a cheer leading event going on today plus a car themed event.

    They’ll stop you at the gate to verify it’s unloaded. Buy your ticket and enter thru the door that has little or no line (to the right of the main entrance as you face the building...and just left of the secondary ticket booth). There, they’ll inspect and zip tie the gun and run you thru a metal detector.

    I've been turned away at that entrance before if not bringing something in, although I do like to come in though Gate 4 to park.

    Jeppo holds up the line for the metal detector, he comes well armed.

    Arrived at 11:30 no line at main entrance at all. Picked up a few reloading supplies but resisted temptation on everything else. Moderately busy, but no so much that you couldn't move through it as quickly as you wanted with a polite excuse me or two...

    The woman at the Census 2020 table wanted me to sign up for a job. Must be my good looks. ;)
    She said Wake County workers get $19.25 per hour and mileage.
