Thanks,

No charge to park, and there's plenty of parking. I was an exhibitor at the last one, but I only had Maglite flashlights and parts - no gun accessories or anything. It was a fun time. I didn't buy anything, but a friend bought a Ruger LCP that weekend.

Thanks, I hope to stop by and check it out. Hopefully I'll have some money to buy some things.
I hear the LCP's are nice, I have a Kel-Tec P3 which has been a great little carry gun, hopefully your friend is enjoying his, I hear they can sometimes be hard to come by.

The one in February was a Fri-Sun deal, and I'm glad I went on Friday.
For those who know the area, parking was backed up to Sheetz on Saturday by about 11:30.

That's correct. I had added it to the Event Calendar, but had not updated this thread. All better now. Thanks!

You can carry, but you'll have to unload it and have it zip-tied at the door. That's pretty standard for most shows in Virginia.

OK That's what I thought. First time to a VA show tomorrow. That sounds pretty standard from other states.

I'll be there.

I ran into a few people today at Giant who were OCing. They have their own little business called Golden and Zimmerman LLC. I asked if they were members of any gun forums, and from the best I could tell, they aren't. If any of you run by their table, mention this site to 'em.

I was there from the moment the doors opened until about 1:15PM. No one claimed the $20.00 prize. *phew* hehe

Here are a few pictures from the show that I posted on facebook.

My wife and I went yesterday. Not a bad show. We bought a neck warmer pad for her, an a couple other small things.

I had bought along a Yugo SKS for "trade bait" but didn't see anything I couldn't live without, so I bought it home.
