Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

I was wondering when someone might post this one. I guess I could have. Does anyone know if this show is any good? There's a $1 off coupon at the bottom of the page here:

or here:

http://www.gunshows-usa.com/images/B.../dolloroff.htm

They're both different but I'm guessing either would be accepted.

Eh...

A gun show is a gun show, however I find this one to be the most disappointing compared to the few shows I've been to such as Valley Forge, Oaks, and the Allentown show this past weekend (which is smaller than the armory show).

If you're close, and I mean "in the area" close, and you like gun shows, I'd say check it out. I live minutes away from it so I always catch it unless I'm not in the mood. Expect more junk, parts, knives, and paraphernalia than guns, but occasionally it can be ok. Oh, and parking can be hairy, but I usually find a spot.

Take the money you save by not going to this show and buy some ice cream. You will be happy you did. The Oaks show is the show to go to in a couple weeks.

Iv'e found some good deals at this show in the past year. Is the Oaks show that much better?

douglee25 is an unknown quantity at this point

You can sell and or trade here too, correct?

I live like 10 minutes from here and I have a pistol I was thinking of getting rid of.

If they buy/trade, do they pay reasonably well?

Well I guess everyone must be there since I didn't get a response.

Anyway, I'm on my way now.

I think I've decided not to go. First because I don't really have anything to spend right now and second because the reviews above are lukewarm at best. It sounds like the oaks show is the one to go to so I'll hold off til then. Anyone that did go to this one check back in and let me know how it was. Maybe I'll check it out in march.

The word I would use would be outstanding and not better!
