    Default Anyone been to the Novi Gun Show?

    The one at The Novi Expo Center is coming up and I'm wondering if it's a good show or not.

    I'm sure since its at the NEC Gas Man has gone?

    If that coupon is for the show, it is the same show that is somewhere in MI every month (Birch Run, Mason, etc.) The Antique Firearms Show in Novi is pretty cool.

    Yeah it from the Michigan Shows but they are not all the same show with the same vendors. i think this Novi show is pretty big compared to the ones they have at smaller venues. Like i've gone a couple of times to the one at the Monroe County Fairgrounds and it's ok but pretty small. I heard they have two at Novi. One is a smaller with more older guns, I'm guessing the one you are talking about? And then this one. I'm most likely going for sure so I'll let everyone know how it was.

    When is it Bob? Got a link? I might go.


    Alcohol, Tobbaco and Firearms should be a convenience store, not a government agency.

    Did you go? See anything worthwhile?

    I went to the Saline show today, picked up 300 pieces of .45ACP brass and 250 pieces of .380. I talked to the guy who had them when I was there last month, he said he had some at home and would bring them. $4/100 for .380 and $6/100 for .45. Today he wanted $10/100 for .380 and $8/100 for .45. WTF? I reminded him what he told me last month. He said he'd do better if I took 'a lot'. Screw that, there were no minimums last month when you gave me the price. I told him I pay exactly whay he quote me regardless oh how many I bought. He bitched but gave in.

    Prices at shows are getting stupid. They wanted more for primers than at Cabela's, and Cablea's prices are ridiculous.

    Same shit here. If you don't know your prices you can pay more at a gun show.

    It sucked. Well, I mean it was a huge show with a ton of stuff but the prices where not great at all and only one table had anything for my CZ and KT and it was nothing worth buying. The freaking ammo was ridiculous. It's like they go to Wal-Mart and Meijer and buy the ammo and then resale it for a lot more because everything was more than WM and Meijer. i honestly could not get over the price people were asking for reloaded ammo either. It was a joke.
