Sold my CZ 455 bought a Buckmark, walked out with more cash than I went in with.

Did see a few FALs, nothing to write home about.

I didn't see any FAL's just mostly AR with a few AK's. I was mostly looking for ammo deals plenty of reloading supplies this time.

The thing I noticed most was the number of new dealers it seems that many of the older dealers are no longer showing up to this show.

There was a guy walking an Imbel/Imbel with white/black furniture. In the building on the left as you exited the pay line there were 2 on tables, a Century L1A1/Metric mix-master for $1k and a PAC imported Imbel receivered kit build for $2k.

Didn't see any ammo at prices I can't get it for up here in Gainesville. Buddy got some cast boolits to reload his 45acp - it was worth it to him to go to avoid the shipping fees. I hit Gander Mountain in Ocala on the way home and scored CCI minimags for $6.50/100, limit 5 boxes.

That's because the owner of Shoot straight now owns Suncoast Gunshows and will not allow any dealers to attend his shows if they attend any competitors venue's they are not allowed to come back. A lot of folks refuse to do business with anything associated with him.
