    I'm going.

    I'm not a big gun show guy but it's been probably 6 months and I need enough odds and ends that it's worth the entry fee, time and haggling for decent prices.

    I'm just hoping that it's not swamped by people trying to stock up after VATech. That's kind of why I'm asking. I won't have enough disposable cash for another month if I miss this one :banghead:

    Nope. I'll wait until June for the Marietta show. I'm not worried that anything will "fast track" to worry about it that quickly. I'll bet the dealers will talk it up though.

    I was unimpressed with the one in gainesville... I wanted more pieces parts holsters junk and they mostly had AR 15 parts and full handguns/rifles

    Thanks for the info! I'm just reading my SOG flier and they have it for 8.95 for +P FMJ. After 10 boxes those shipping costs really negate themselves over 13$ box locally :D

    It's always a toss-up at gun-shows, but I'm hoping for cheap mak ammo if nothing else. That and the other odds and ends. I certainly wouldn't buy a gun at one though! But, like I said... it's the odds and ends that I need that make me want to go... that and it just happens to coincide with a pay raise and bonus :D If I don't spend it on stuff like guns and ammo it will just go towards bills and booze :D

    I'm a little unclear on the sales process at GA gun shows. They fill out a 4473 on you, but they don't do background checks for pistol or rifle purchases, correct?

    They do the check. You'll see dealers all over the place on the phone calling in buyers' info.

    I thought so. Waste of time for me to go until the GFL shows up, I get delayed at least three days every time.

    I went to the Gainsville show and found out that their is more dealers there individual sellers.Which is bad because I was trying to finded a good deal on a ak47 which the dealers don't like to haggle on price.What happen to all the individual at the gunshows this is just crazy letting all the dealers take up the floor space. :roll:
    But it was pretty cool seeing all of kinds of firearms displayed on the show floor.

    I'm waiting for mine too. It'd still be nice to go and browse a little bit. Although, it's very tempting to buy.

    I also like to look around since there are no real sporting goods or gun shops in my area.

    I'll be going. Need to hit Georgia Arms for more ammo.

    If you want a bigger venue wait until May 5-6 at the North Atlanta Trade Center. Atleast twice the space as the Farmers Market.

    Yea, I'll be back home in Atlanta that weekend. I might have to go to that. Not sure what the plans are going to look like yet, though.
