However if most everything is marked and an occasional tag is missing or upside down; meh, people are human sometimes stuff gets bollixed up. Especially at a busy gun show like Oaks. Someone puts a gun back in the case and they don't notice the tag is flipped or they get a new item in and forget to mark it. I've seen dealers run out of price marking tags at shows and scramble to find some from other vendors.
    I can certainly understand a mistake or a flipped tag here or there. I have no problem with that and if I really wanted to know the price Iíd ask. Iím talking about when all the tags are upside down or tucked under. There was one table on Friday, no lie, every tag was tucked neatly under the gun, upside down (so I couldnít even look on an angle) in a case so I couldnít flip them over myself. I probably wouldnít have bought anyway but when I see that I just keep moving. One or two tags, meh, whatever. I get it and itís not a big deal, but all the tags purposely hidden? No thank you.

    Actually the controls are stainless. That model is called The Nightmare. Sig did that scheme in a number of models of pistols. That one has been since discontinued. Not everyone's cup of tea but there are fans of that motif.

    Yes. That torques me off a bit too but not badly so. Why would you go to the bother of price tagging your guns then not show them? OTOH, not pricing ANYTHING is really a bit disingenuous. There's a couple of dealers at some of the shows who do that and they are notorious for jacking prices up on a whim depending on what they think they can get away with. That or their asking prices are so high they would scare people off or make them walk away in disgust.

    If i have to ask the price of everything you have, I'm just going to walk right by. So you just lost a chance of any sale. Be honest and up front if you're prices aren't a total scam.

    If there's no price shown , it must not be for sale.

    Gotta at least try to be competitive.

    If there's no price, it's FREE isn't it?

    Wouldn't being competitive mean knowing who has what for sale at that show for what price? In my experience, they don't have time to peruse the shows for going prices. Being a regular and knowing who to deal with is the key to success for me. i e Magpul AR 2nd Generation mags range from $10 to $15 or more. I know right where to go if I want any more of those and wonder if the other guys even sell any.
