that sucks. I am probably just wasting my money for parking and entry, especially since I am not planning to buy a gun as I still do not have my CCW to allow me to leave with my purchase, but I spent an enjoyable few hours the last time I attended and did pick up a few odds and ends. this time since I have my new Sig, I will be looking to get some good deals on ammo and look at some Sigs I have never handled before.

from what I understand, the upcoming Lakeland show is the one to attend. the "Suncoastgunshow" in Lakeland is more or less the same as the Tampa one this weekend so I would skip it, but I am going to try and attend the Lakeland show to see how it compares. and hopefully by then, my CCW will have come through.

a buddy of mine wants to go but has an appointment in the morning so I most likely wont be at the show until 1pm Saturday afternoon. I see all the vendor booths have been sold so hopefully they'll have a lot to look at and some good deals to be had.

I'm curious, have you been to both Lakeland shows? from what I could ascertain online, the Lakeland Show I sent the link to is supposedly better than the Suncoast gun show sponsored event that is being held this weekend.

the Lakeland show to go to is hosted by the local gun club. All the privete owners and collectors are there.The Suncoast show is just all the big and small "dealers" settin up a mobile shop with jacked up prices,and they haggle them down to regular suggested retail.
The interesting show is the gun club show,ya'll will enjoy it.

that's what I have heard. it should work out that I will have my ccw right around the time the Lakeland show is going on in September. And you are right about the Jacked up gun prices at the Tampa show. I looked at a lot of guns but didn't see anything I couldn't buy cheaper online.

I'm mostly going this weekend to pick up some bulk cleaning brushes, swabs, etc. and look at 9mm ammo prices. the 1st time I went, I didn't have my sig so I was only looking for .22 ammo and accessories. Needless to say, there wasn't a lot to be had for the .22. I will probably look and handle a lot of guns Saturday, but I'm not expecting to buy one.

that's the one you find under floridagunshows.com. there were here in Jax the other weekend. there were only two "deals", a beat up 229 and a makarov, that was gone when i went back. ammo prics for reloads were more expensive than new remington UMC

other "deals" i saw was a P220 for the ultra low price of 1350, and a DPMS AR for 1500. th ONE guy who had 7.72x54R ammo spam cans wanted $120 when i bout mine online for 92 DELIVERED
