    Eagle arms is ripe for some competition...shows deserve to be better than this piece of crap performance.

    Went there today,
    a couple of the vendors were talking about the ND,
    like others have said, there was lots of empty tables, and way, way, way too much flea market crap (how many cheap chinese knives, stun gun, gloves or beef jerky vendors do you need), why would you let a "bathroom installer" booth there? did find a couple deals on stuff to replenish loading stuff i used over the winter and a few 300 blackout pmags to try. got there at 905,found a parking spot easily, line was at the door, walked right in

    The promoters may have a number in mind that makes it worth it for them to do the show. Maybe there are not enough gun vendors to hit that number. Or I could be wrong.
    Some people just plain suck.
    If you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough.

    Fair point but think of it this way. They pay the rent so you can have your day at the gun show. What do you care? Just keep on walking. The pink handbags table never botherd me.

    Thirty years ago I worked at Zerns when the placed was packed from one end to the other. We used to get stink bombs and toss them in the isles. That was a break extender and worked every time. Our other trick was to throw bubble gum in the isle and see who stepped in it. Our best and biggest asshole move was gluing quarters to the floor. Someone would always slam on the brakes and cause a traffic jam and get plowed into. That prank never got old.

    I don't know how they run their show but empty space is income lost. If I was doing it I'd put the non-gun related last on the list and use them to fill out my hall. By now they should have a pretty good idea of what vendors will show and it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

    I wonder how much they charged the woman giving chair massages? She only needs a little room for her chair. Every time I passed by her she was busy.

    The Bathfitters guy, not so much.
