We are 35 minutes away. My wife and I will be there. And if you sign-up as a new NRA member, or renew your membership, you get in free. Otherwise, just $10.

Let us know if the gouging is going on there too. Probably, Nation wide I think.
There is no "gouging" in firearms/ammo sales. Only sellers and willing buyers. "Gouging" refers to essential items in a disaster, e.g., gasoline, electricity, potable water, etc. Guns & ammo are not on that list.

When a seller has 30,000 rds. of 1 caliber in 1 brand and configuration. @$1.10 each a rd., that made not make the technical definition of gouging, but it makes me sick. Call it what you may.

I would refer to primers as essential, and their availability is a disaster. Therefore, if some jackwagon is hitting you up for $400 a brick, he is gouging. By the way, ammunition has been considered “essential” in many places.

Back when they were forcing certain businesses to close here in VA due to Covid fears. Gun stores were not required to close due to being declared an essential business. Even with a democrat Governor and State house.

Seems like we have some closet Socialists here who want price fixing. :rolleyes:

Can't afford it, don't buy it. That's capitalism.

Gentlemen, please stay on topic. The topic of this thread is the Tulsa Gun Show. Not the merits of Capitalism.

That show is no joke. Lots of promotions from the big guys. Sure, there is always the total rip off, but not like the 50 table variety where everyone thinks their stuff is the only stuff in existence.

The shows around here have been pretty disappointing of late. But if you are into scented candles, Chinese knives, costume jewelry, or knock off optics, then they are just the place for you. Sometimes there are even a few people selling MREs.

More than 4,200 tables, over 11 acres. Biggest in the world.

From their website--"When you come to a Wanenmacher's Gun Show, you see a gun show full of guns, knives, ammo and some military artifacts. You WON'T see lots of non-gun related stuff or flea market garbage. Not that they don't want to come, We won't let them. Our show could be 5 times bigger than it is if we let in all the exhibitors who really don't belong in a gun show. (candy dealers, spa salesmen, car dealers, etc...) We limit non-related items to just 2% of the entire show. The building is still packed - both levels - with top quality gun show merchandise. Many of the best antique dealers come to Tulsa, bringing excellent, hard to find antique firearms. (once again, not antique furniture or magazines, but antique guns and related items.) Our antique firearms section is getting bigger every year."
