Gun show in Sherman

Going to be a gun show in Sherman Texas at the Midway Mall December 26th and 27th.

I've never heard of such a thing happening before. I'm pretty sure it'll be nowhere near as big as anything that goes on in the metroplex, but hell, it's 5 miles from where I live and 1 mile from where I work. I'll check it out.

The mall it's being held at is not 30.06 posted (to the best of my knowledge). I wonder if the gun show will be any different.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

That mall is dying quickly. First black light mini golf, now gun shows.

The terrorists running the shops in there are going to be panic stricken, while the patrons of Burlington Coat Factory are going to be fearing probation violations from all the guns around.

Is that the mall across the street from where we ate lunch at?
Looked like a decent sized mall.

It's super secret code. I'd tell you what it meant but we'd have to let you in the club, and Sean said that's just not going to happen. Sorry bro.

But, I fixed it so others won't feel left out.


David


Oh, and it was Cracker Barrel.

If yall ate at Cracker Barrel, then yall were across the street from the Town Center. The Midway Mall is off of Texoma Parkway, roughly a mile north of where yall took the CHL class.

I'm not sure if I'm going the 26th or the 27th, but I'm going one of those days.

Cell # is 903-818-8127 if anybody from here is interested in going and meeting up.

OH!! So you haven't heard? We didn't actually "take" the class. We got there on a Sat. morning and waited for an hour or so... nobody came.
We went and ate, then shopped for some ammo at Academy then went back to find out wth happened.

I told Sean that I was ready to thrash some ass to whom ever gave me the wrong date - that is until we walk in, go up to the counter and are met by an old coot sporting a veterans cap with lots of tags on it, and in a wheel chair no less. There goes my billy bad ass attitude

Turns out, who ever took my info failed to mention that it was on a Sunday, not Saturday, and also didn't even have us in the book - at all.

I felt bad so I had Sean buy me lunch and cuddle me a little (just a little though).

We are going back two weeks from today (29th) and try again.

Wow....just wow. That's fucked up dude, I've never ever heard of any problems like that with those guys. My class was on a Saturday, I took off work to take it.

I would've been seriously pissed. I wonder who it was that took down your info.

Weird, right? I figure it's because that will be a huge traffic day for the mall, what with gift returns and whatnot.

I'm sure it won't be big, but I'm gonna check it out in the hopes of maybe, just maybe, finding a deal on a good revolver.

Also, it's a public mall......so that should mean they can't charge any kind of admission to get in; or am I wrong about that?

Oh, I was pissed all right, especially when I felt bad for Sean since I called and made the arrangements. All I can deduce is; Who ever took my info on the phone that day was busy and forgot to write it down - or, went to write it down later and remembered that I had asked for "Saturday" and found out that they didn't have one that day, then decided to not add anything in the books at all.

Nobody there owned up to it either. I also don't remember them asking for my phone number to call back in case of a change, so they couldn't have done so anyway.

No biggie I guess. They seem like good people and in fact, we decided to go ahead and try out the range anyway, so we threw some lead for a while.

Range is top notch though. Really nice and well lit up, good air exchange etc..

That's good, I'm glad yall at least had a good experience at some point, lol. Still taking the class there? I know you said the 29th.

I'm wondering if Red River Firearms will have something going on at the gunshow at the mall.

Name's Matt, btw.

Yes. Going to try one more time. Only bad thing is, since it's on a Tuesday, I'll have to leave even earlier to make the 7:30 am slot (coming from Keller). I'm guessing the traffic will be much thicker on a work day as opposed to a Saturday.

Yep, drivers get pretty retarded out here on weekday mornings. Especially all the teens driving to school.

I don't even know if that could be considered cuddling. There was a fire and we just did what men do.

I'm just glad you played little spoon.

David, I'll run you by Midway afterwards. It looks like the inspiration piece for Denver International Airport.

Where are they having it? The ex-JC Penny area? Heck...there's plenty of space in that mall...

Not too sure, although that would make sense. Plenty of space indeed....dead space.

That's what I was told this morning by one of the vendors that'll be there. Beat me to it.

I was born and raised in Sherman, I can't believe how much it's grown over the years. I miss the days when I could get anywhere in 5mins. Kinda wish people would stop moving here just because traffic is getting bad.

I can say the same thing about Keller, where I live now.

I remember when Hwy 377 was a 2 lane road and pasture land where we used to take our guns out to and and shoot everything in site. Now, it's traffic hell and looks like Tokyo on a Friday night. You'll spend 10 minutes just waiting in a turn lane to get off of 377.

Did anybody go to this? And if so, how was it?

I'm just hoping it was good and turn out went well so they'll do another one.

As far as gun shows go, it was small. SMALL. I hit all the tables in 45 minutes or so, then went to the food court and had some chili dogs.

Went back in, and picked up a 38 special. Taurus, M85-S (possibly M58-S, I could have the 5 and the 8 switched).

Little black/black, 5shot 2 inch revolver. Interesting shooter for sure.

LONG ass trigger pull when double action, but with it cocked and in single action, you can damn near snipe with it (for what it is). I put 50 rounds through it this past weekend. I'm happy, I'll probably hang onto this one for a while.

How was the turn out that you saw? As said, be nice if they do that again.

There was a pretty constant stream of people, I'd say it was a decent turn out. I went the first day, Saturday. Didn't go back Sunday.

I'd say if they could attract more vendors, and have a bigger space with more vendors, it'd be even better, and it'd probably happen again.

Sunday was kinda slow. I showed up there and checked around to see if there were any deals. Not too much was there really. I think maybe some of the good stuff disappeared the day before. I'm just lol'ing at the fact I went to a gun show at a mall.
