why I wont be there. The people will not pay that much just to stroll around. Its really funny to watch the people come in to gun shows, you have the goons who bring 20 guns in a van and walk them around all day [to cheap to buy a table], the people who only have the admission fee and walk around with 2.00 in their pocket, the fools who think youll give them anything on your table for 5 bucks, and finally [the minority] people who actually buy something.Rustyaxecamp said:Probably because they are having it at the new basketball facility here in town. The old civic arena is closed down and ready for demo since they built the new ice arena.....
They will lose a lot of people with a $9 admission. If Birch Run or someone local had a show that same weekend, I bet the turnout would be real bad.
I will probably still attend, just to talk to some of the local guys that set up that I only see there that one time a year....
Did the table fee go up signifigantly too?
It just amazes me what they will allow. They send you these sign up sheets and yada yada that 90% has to be gun related, Then you see tables of craft crap, beanies, lamps, and other junk.Rustyaxecamp said:It's really too bad. The Midland show used to be a real nice show. It has really went down in the past 5-6 years. The admission goes up and the quality goes down.
I think you are right, too many shows wrecks it.
I mean a guy can only buy so many chinese throwing stars and swords right?:lol:
It is more like one a week. Look at the schedule for the Doug Carl (nearly every weekend) shows and then throw in all the other promoters. It ends up that some weekends we could hit 2 or 3 shows if we had the time, gas money, and energy.Huntsman27 said:I have cut back doing the shows as there are too many, and it isnt profitable. With one about every month it takes the wind out of the sails. I enjoyed doing the shows, but I did it to make money not read books all day.
