I have been to several gun shows over the past 2-3 years and have been disappointed about a few things. I am surprised that there has not been someone that is there selling bug out bags or more prepper gear. Yes, they have the wise food, and plenty of guns/ammo. And there are a few private sellers that have military surplus. But, I think someone needs to start a prepper/bug out supply company. Has anyone seen otherwise? i am located in Virginia.

Nice. I taught myself all about rabbits and plan on turning a small portion of my property into a rabbitry in the spring. Figured it was one of the cheapest meats out there to raise, without needed permits, etc.

excellent! when you are selling the pelts do a bit of mineral oil. just a small bit rubbed on yer hands and the finish with a dusting and rub in of corn starch! makes them shiny and soft! also works when showing them.

Went to the gun show in Lubbock,TX on Sunday. Usual stuff like outragous prices for anything AR or .223. But in the middle of it all was a lady with ammo boxes full of heirloom seeds. I visited with her a while. She seemed to know what she was talking about. I will post the company name later. She was doing seeds in a regional pack. This part of Texas is too dry to expect a lot of corn to grow with out irrigation. She added other plants that work better than others for this area. Next to her was a guy selling Berkley Filters. I had never seen or used one except on the web. I still don't know why they are $250 but at least he showed me how they work and what they can and can't do.

It seemed there were more people selling cammo gear, not just clothes. A lot of packs, frames, and bags. I went to sell some AR and AK mags. Everyone had some on their table for $50-$85 but no one was buying. I have 10 AR Thermold 30rd and 2 42rd AK mags for sale. I paid $20 for them last summer expecting to get another AR or AK but other things needed to be bought first. If anybody on here wants the AR's for 40ea send me a PM. The AK's are 50.

Here in nor cal, the gun show is a joke.
Not kidding or exxagerating at all, I can go once and then come back 10 years later and it will be exactly the same. Overpriced junk.
Additionally, its around $10 to get in and $10 parking.
Lately there has been this push to abolish it because it is held in one of (if not THE) worst neighborhoods in San Francisco..hunters point.
THEY argue that the guns are going straight from the show to the waiting hands of felons... ignorant politicians!
Like we dont have a 10 day wait.
