    What time are you meeting at Bob's? How much does it cost to shoot at the shooting house? I live just down the road from there.

    I was told the cost at the door is $6.00. There are $1.00 off coupons to be found online.

    Did anybody go today? They had some decent priced marlin 30-30's and .22's. Did not buy, but got to handle a lot of beauties. Had several marlin.357 and .44 mags- as well as these calibers by Puma. Kid in a candy store.

    Only bargains I see at gunshows are being carried by people coming in the doors. Ain't had a decent deal from a dealer at a show in last ten years. I need some .40SW holowpoints but by the time I add gas, admission plus inflated prices I might as well stay home, order off the internet and save money.

    We went and I was a little disappointed at the lack of reloading stuff there. My dad was able to sell a rifle that he has been wanting to get rid of. There seemed to be more knife cases than rifle displays, but I am not going to complain. It was in Conway not Little Rock and hey, they had guns!

    There's another gun show in Hot Springs, at the Convention Center, Jan 22-23. I think admision is $7.00, but may be wrong, could be only $6.00. All money made at the show goes to the South Hot Springs Lion's Club to help provide eyeglasses for those who can't afford them -- mostly kids. There will be about 400 tables. This is usually a good show, with a minimum of non-gun or hunting related items.

    Same here. But hey it's a start. Conway has not had a show in years and I think allot of vendors were a little worried about turn out. I think that as long as they keep having them they will slowly be better
