A decade ago I used to purchase most of my guns at gun shows. I recall in the 90's gun shows being the place to go to find the deals. I must of purchased a dozen guns from the small gun tables that were a single folding table with 1 or 2 guns on display and stacks of those guns in boxes head high behind the guy selling them (on day one of the show, buy the end of the second day those tables would be sold out). Their prices were significantly cheaper than you could find at gun stores. It was obviously big bulk purchase discounts that these part time dealers would pass along to the consumers to move product quickly. I don't recall when they disappeared, but thinking back I haven't bought at a show since the 90's. I go to a show once a year or so, and always go home complaining that the prices are higher than the local gun stores, and all the tables seem to be run buy gun stores. There's very few independent dealers. Was there some kind of law passed? Is this a local/state thing or has anyone else noticed this?
