Wells Gun Show

Thanks. Will they be all set up and running by 8:00 or will there still be vendors trickling in at that time?

Wells Gun Show

Postby INOR on Sat Mar 10, 2018 5:47 pm

I got down there pretty close to 8:00 and it was plenty busy. Looked like a pretty good turnout. Tried the afore-mentioned egg coffee which was fine. Seemed like the show was very well run and organized. I didn’t go home with anything though. Wasn’t looking for anything in particular and nothing struck me as being a must have or a particularly good deal. But was amazed at all the random stuff that people bring out!

Great show - and much less junk than previous years.

Busy, busy, busy - walking isles were difficult at times due to over-crowding.

We walked until we couldn't walk anymore (6 hours) - I slept most of trip home with BigDog58 driving.

Thanks to all who attended, it was a great show just under 4000 paid people thru the doors. Saturday every dealer I walked past was filling out 4473's with people waiting. Spoke with every vendor on Sunday (part of my job at the show) and several (over a dozen) reported the broke show sales records. 1 vendor left early on Sat as they had sold out and had to go gather more stock for Sunday and 2 vendors sold out early Sunday am. The ATM company refilled the ATM Sunday am as it was almost empty. Again Thank you all for your support.!

I was looking everywhere for the gun show loophole and couldn't find it. Was that hidden in a back room or something? Is it some kind of portal to the land of lawlessness? :D

Isn't the gun show loophole when your wife tells you you are not allowed to charge another gun to the credit card so you pay with cash instead?

The loop hole is when the wife says no more. So you pay cash and don’t tell her. ;)

Nope not a one - we (some of the club members) decided if there were any, we where going to provide coffee and donuts to them and thank them for exercising their rights.

Good for you guys.

Surprised you were able to find gluten free donuts though.
