Went to the show yesterday, this is a regular stop for me. There seemed to be fewer tables than normal, but it was nice to have the extra walkin' room. Attendence was high but , as mentioned, very friendly. The last 4 or 5 shows there, it has been more like "combat shopping"
The selection of used guns was not as deep as usual and there seemed to be fewer "walkers", although "parking lot deals" were brisk. (just the way I like it) My usual component vendors were not there and powder and bullet prices were up a bit, though I'm not sure why. (bought a couple thousand .30 cal and .45 anyway, LOL) Millsurp prices were up on .308 and .223 but 7,62 X 39 and 54 were pretty good.
As suncoast shows go, I'd put this one in the "better" catagory. I usually make more money/ better deals at the "collector" or smaller shows, (two guy's, Punta Gorda and Lakeland, etc) but I really enjoyed the "friendly" atmosphere at Palmetto this time. (normally, I refer to the suncoast venue as "rambo" shows...)
If it turns $$$ into smoke and noise, I'm there.
