You missed the "tacti-cool" sections. I haven't been to a gun show in a long time where there were anything like a nice shotgun or even a normal shotgun...all tacti-cool.Yeah, I live in Rogers. Going to Tulsa for the gun show... that was a huge thing when I was a kid. Some kids went to Disney World, I went to the Tulsa gun show.
Gun shows haven't been what they used to be for going on at least two decades now. There's three general categories of products at gun shows now; 1) Chinese shit, 2) overpriced shit, 3) WTF is that even doing at a gun show shit.
Back in the day (puttin' on my old man voice here) -- it was collectors, hobbyists, makers, and local shops. Local shops weren't just gun shops -- it'd be gun shops, pawn shops, general stores, taxidermists bringing in shit people didn't pay for, all kinds of just cool stuff. Maybe I'm just old and bitter. Fuck everything. Yaup, old and bitter.
