YOU DO UNDERSTAND THAT THE GUNSHOWS "START" THE "DAY" BEFORE THE PUBLIC IS ALLOWED IN............Right.......??? The Show starts Friday At 5 or 6:PM for some people. So there is 4 hours tonight and 3 hours Sat. morning before the shows open at 10:AM to the John Q. Public........that those inside are running around looking for & buying underpriced goods. So that by 10:AM Saturday morning nearly everything that was under valued, has been bought and moved to the new owners table and priced slightly above fair market value.
So as a Life member of AGCA, I just go at 7:AM Sat. & buy what seems like a super deal to me.........and come home before the doors open to the public. All in all, if I was still renting tables, say 3 tables plus cost of supplies and travel cost.......rock bottom cost about $300.00 but the most horrific part for me was having to sit on my Arse inside a building with massive amouts of Human Animals. So I no longer do the gunshows, but will swooop in at 7:AM buy what I can use............and race to escape the human sewer known as Anchorage/Palmer/Wasilla area. Come home, mix a nice drink and watch the bears and goats play on the mountains.
Yes.....it sucks, but someone has to follow his own path in an insane world.
So now you know how it works.
