I can't believe it's October either! This show will be in the West Pavilion (AKA the BIG room) since in mid-October we (hopefully) won't be needing A/C like in August. This is near the east side of the fairgrounds and the building runs north & south.

I'll be at the NRA/NRA-ILA/ISRPA booth as usual. Unlike the last show I'll be there all day Friday, possibly the Saturday or Sunday as well.

When I get the lay of the land I'll provide landmark-directions such as the Revolver-Tactical "big bomb" sign, the guy with a bazilion targets, $25 Serbian gas-masks, the concession stand and the NRA/NRA-ILA/ISRPA booth.

The thread will be bumped with sightings of: SPAM-Can Mom, the cast of The Hills Have Eyes, the extras from The Walking Dead, Kill a commie for Mommie and Kalashnikov t-shirt buds, 1911 lanyard-carry dude, gas mask dude(s), the Man from Glad if it's raining, and of course INGOers in the wild.

I tried to stop by and say hi to someone who shall remain nameless but they weren't around when I showed up. So rude. I think this time I'll just crop dust the nra booth :D
Mom has recovered from her knee surgery (probably all the physical therapy exercises I made her do) so I'll be able to be there all day. I'll try to stay upwind.

As CM can attest, I will be making comments. It's a shame not to share them with INGO.

I'll be there last show of the year might as well try to get some decent deals on ammo if I can. And KellyinAvon you forgot about the dope smokers too. The last time I went I walked past many people that smelled like dope.

So you will have to watch out for the Shaggy smoking weed guy!

Less than a week away! Got my list (ok, not really, only looking for one thing and I only need a list for more than two things) got my cash (need more) other than that I’m ready.

Gonna sound stupid but if I have something to sell how do I let it be known?
I've only sold rifles, but I used to carry it with a sling, then make a sign with what it was and how much I was asking, attach it to a dowel rod and put it down the barrel. I've seen others put something similar on pistol cases too. Then again a lot of people just carry in whatever they're selling. There will be people that come up and ask you about it, guaranteed. I just found it easier to make a sign than to have to keep getting stopped by the tire kickers. I have done it that way too though.

Can you sell or trade at 1500?
Yes you can.
A dowel rod down the barrel of a slung long gun with a sign on top containing info is a classic approach to private sales. I've seen signs on backpacks as well.

Letting the folks know what ya got seems key. Several shows back we saw INGOer @Smith& W spot a round-butt 686 from like three aisles away (not mentioned on the sign, spotted it partially sticking out of a cargo pocket.) Not everyone has that keen eye.

List? Check! Cash? Check! Stash of snacks? Check! It's going to be raining tomorrow so there may be an appearance of The Man from Glad.

I am looking for a decent 22LR pistol to use at the range. Any chance of finding something like this at the show - for a reasonable price? Been a while since I attended the event...

Excellent question sir! A lot of the tables are still covered, I’m gonna take a lap around and I’ll see what there is to see. Are you looking revolver or semi automatic?
