    Default Ice box gun show, dont even bother

    Just got home from the Ice Box gun show and let me tell you, what a dissapointment. I mean it gets smaller and smaller each time I go, and for some reason I continue to subject myself to the sade throngs of outdoorsmen peddling beef jerkey and holographic framed nature photos. Something new this time around was a table full of used power tools, what are we coming to? I only live about 5 minutes from the Ice Box and frequent UNO Fitness above it, so Im glad I didnt make a long trip to get there.

    Highlight of the show: One of the vendors was selling green tip 556. 200 rounds @ $180, 750 rounds @$700, and to top it off, had a sign telling people that Obummer made it illegal, perpetuating the panic.

    If youre considering the Ice Box gub show, just continue with your day acting like it doesnt even exist. Youre not missing much.

    I was there early yesterday about 1030am. I thought there were more people there than I remember from previous shows, but it still sucks. Why, at one point, I actually had to say "excuse me" to get past a glut of 4 people in the aisle. never had to do that at a Jaeger show lol.

    A couple of people did actually have some good tables, but no I don't think it's worth the $8 admission. Too much crap.
