Finally, they're being more honest about what's at these shows. Though adding in beef jerky to the name would be great.

Beef jerky would be an excellent staple for living out the end times but it's so tasty I would gobble it all up the first day or two.

If they were really honest then they would have to call them "Over Priced Guns, Cheaply made Prepper Gear, and Tasty Beef Jerky Shows"

They had one of these in this end of the State earlier this year. I was gonna go, but a friend called just as I was leaving the house. He told me don't waste my time. There were only two gun dealers and most of it was overpriced almost useless survivalist junk. Very little of it would actually be of help in a real survival situation.

I hope the show there is better.

Knoxville and East TN is rapidly filling up with evacuees. If they find out about this show RK might have a big hit on their hands.

My Jaws hurt just thinking about eating that much beef jerky. Better have a good supply of floss sticks.

The last one I went to was at the Jacobs Building and yes some junky guns. The ones that have been handled to death and mostly over priced. The 5 or 6 rows in the center had guns and ammo but the further to each side you went the more junk and yardsaleish it became. The far left put me in mind of a thrift store.

Went today. Waste of time. They did have a 20ft table of fudge.Come away with a t-shirt and a ammo can. Stopped by my local gun shop and picked up a 500 rd brick of Aguilia Super Maximum for 30.00.

The thing that got me was that I was needing a nylon flashlight pouch. You would think there would be tons of things like that at a Prepper show,NO not one. Picked up a nice one at Academy tonight for 5.99.

You just saved me a few bucks, time, and overwhelming disappointment. 

May head to SMKW and Bud's today...

Looks like the jerky and junk show is headed to Lebanon this weekend. Saw the ad and kinda wanted to go, but after reading this think I'll pass. Sounds good in concept but the jerky won out.
