What a waste of time.....are most gun shows like this:

$325.00 MD Arms 20 round drum :eek:

Tromix S17 $2350.00 with dust cover and parts of receiver worn down to the metal (had shark brake, reg folder stock, and HK sites. I asked the vendor how many ports it had at least 5 times and he kept telling me that is had two settings (talking about the gas plug). The guy running the table (never left his chair) just about had a heartattack because his cronnie was going to get a tool and remove the gas plug(per my request) screaming that if it got scratched he would be out his $2350.00, but yet never got his ass out of the chair to even try and answer any questions. He seemed to know even less than I do :lolol:

Not going to waste my time at shows anytime soon!

Gun shows around me usually have some good and bad. I've seen stock S12s for 700 and 12rd surefires for 60. But then I've seen Saiga rifle for low 300s and upper 2s. I picked up an S223 for 325 NIB w/ dimpled receiver and am very content with my purchase. There are a lot of deals and a lot of scams.

S-17 at Bear Paw? If so you won't want it because I've drooled on it, kinda like that VW commercial where the guy licks the door handle "claiming" the car.

That would be the one....I'm happy with my Tromix, but I have friends interested in one. The guy didnt attempt to answer any questions and if I'm about to fork over 2 grand and you cant tell me how many ports\what size\etc and wont show me.....I'd be a fool to spend the money.....

Gun shows are for people that don't/can't use the internet or want to save the cost of shipping on ammo. Otherwise, everthing is overpriced.

NY gun shows suck. We never get any of the cool stuff. Not much for hicap anything available here.
