Ft. Worth gun show?

Anyone planning on hitting up the FW gun show this weekend? I will probably be there looking for a surplus Sig P6/225. Does anyone know what the going rate of the P6 is at shows? Hopefully it isn't too much higher than the ~$250 they go for online.

So is the FW one lame compared to the one next weekend at Market Hall? (I am assuming that is the show you are referring to)

That's what I hear, but I've only ever been to one gun show, and that was one at Market Hall.

I've been to Ft. Worth many times and have yet to find a good deal there. Market Hall is much better but I still don't always find a good deal there, better than Ft. Worth IMHO

I've always found good deals at the Big Town shows even though it is much smaller; and it is 10 months per year

I bought my current carry weapon - Glock 29 - at Market Hall for right at $600 out the door. That's about the going price (maybe higher), but it was the only one I could find locally at the time, and I'd been looking for a month or two.

I bought my Witness .38 Super at Big town NIB for $346; have done a lot of trading with dealers and walk-ins there also. Also bought and sold a few guns with walk-ins.

Yes, Market hall is quite a bit better than forth worth.

Mequite is a close second behind Market hall imo as well...





Ill be hitting up the MH show next weekend as well.

The only show I have been to so far was the Ft. Worth show, and I got my PX4 Storm 9mm for $415 OTD. I think I got a good deal, thanks to Schrams...
