Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Went to my 2nd gun show ever yesterday since it was right next to the 2nd flea market I went to in Jacksonville FL. Huge waste of time and money. As I approach the building someone is coming out and says something like "man prices are high today" That should of been the tell tale sign. But instead I approached the entrance and asked if they had any vendors selling knives and just like the last gun show I went to they said yeah. So I paid my $8 dollar admission and quickly went to the bathroom. They had like 3-5 small isles of rows for vendors. I don't have as much gun knowledge to speak on their behalf but the knives were priced higher then retail. One vendor even had CCC stuff priced higher then online. Basically selling BudK items for higher prices. Same thing happened at the last gun show I went to. Honestly I felt like I paid $8 dollar admission just to use the restroom and browse for 10 minutes. Felt more like the NRA just suckering people into money like the churches do. I can go to the webster flea market and see more gun and knife vendors selling for free with no admission charges. Considering I got my last knife for $9 dollars that I was happy with I definitively feel like I wasted money on a $8 dollar admission. If the "event" is so pro gun they should let me view their items for free. Even a guy standing outside is pointing at a sign of some guy in politics, I am assuming he is telling you to support or vote for him. It's just money raised for their campaign agendas. If this keep happening ill never be going to gun shows or give them a chance.
