Concerning the problem of deleting private messages, I just created a brand new forum on one of my domains and the error wasn't present. Over the weekend, I will try something, but it will require me to shut down the forum. I will try to do this at a less problematic time for you guys. I'll keep you posted but if the forum isn't available, it is because I am working on it.

Post by George »

Thinking of checking out the show in Largo. Mostly looking for Milsurp stuff and accessories. Any good?

Not bad as far as looking at overpriced firearms and accessories. Lots of "private collections" at these, but almost every one has the same guns they had two years ago, at much higher prices. Some actual FFLs selling stock, but still somewhat overpriced.

I do buy oddball stuff at these, ammo that is rarely or no longer made, various parts and some reloading gear. More than I buy at the Shoot Straight show, except for t-shirts, hats and jerky.

So did you go to the 2 guys show?? If so how was it?? Always seems I have to pick another show over those guys and do not make to theirs.

I did. It was a $1/minute show. In and out in 5 minutes. They had a decent mix, just VERY small. Definitely not worth the drive.

There's 2 shows in Pinellas this coming weekend. 2 guys at the old Minrig building in Largo and the St Pete gunshow at the National Guard Armory. The 2 guys show at this location is small. I can't tell you about the other one. Going for the first time on Saturday. It doesn't happen often.

I saw that, they really placed them nearly on top of each other...

That may be fun to see...

The Armory show is put on by Florida Gun Expo. Edwin, & Erica put it on, & are the largest FFL at their shows. Nice people, they do the shows near the Miami Airport, & Miramar Armory. I would call their shows “medium size”, & IRA has done well lately at their shows. GARY.

From what I have seen of the Orlando shows, Florida Gun Expo will have more newer guns then older.. I do not know if that is so with their shows in the hinterlands..

Went to the two shows.. Both seemed about the same size, give or take more or less.

Where as the two guys show was better for me.. A lot more older rifles and guns.. There were some interesting pieces

One of the odd ball items was a Gras 1874 converted into a 20 ga shotgun.. You will see many more converted Mauser Geha shotguns vs Gras.. It was neat..

The St Petersburg show was many more Newer guns then older. But there was a guy and gal out front selling an Enfield No 4 rifle.. It had to have been at a good price, there was a feeding frenzy around them and by the time I came near some one was handing them money and they were walking away much to the chagrin of the crowd that had gathered.
