Lebanon gun show Jan 16 & 17. 2021


Recommended Posts

Made the trek to the show this am. The crowd was unbelievable. By far the largest I've seen there.

Prices? As expected, thru the roof. Saw one box of hunting ammo, box of 20, $80.00. Other ammo ran pretty much in the same track. One dealer had numerous cases of assort. ammo, priced on the roof, people lined up to buy, apparently at any price.

Folks, it's going to be a long time before this changes.  There was still long lines waiting to get in.

A friend went down there and text me awhile ago. He said the ammo was horribly priced. Everything sky high. He didn't buy anything, and went there with plans to do that.

Yep, it was, I didn't exaggerate the prices. I was expecting to see that, but still sticker shock to actually see it on a price sticker.

I was there from about 0930 to 1130 walking around trying to see if I could find a buyer for a rifle. No luck. Everybody was there for ammo.

There was one guy selling 5 56 battle packs (200 rounds) in the plastic for $170. He had a line the whole time I was there.

Cross posting this to long guns.

we have hundreds of thousands of new gun owners in the US. They are panic buying ammo to go with panic bought firearms. I understand their panic, I even sympathize. But I refuse to join the folly. I looked at ammo today on GB and found 30-30 that I bought two months ago for $16 a box bid to over $80. For a box of 20? really? I would like to have a better stash but I have what I need. Stop feeding these speculators who are cutting off our supply only to try to gouge us. where do you think they are buying theirs? when they stop selling because we stop buying from them the ammo will return to the shelves where it was destined to be.

Went yesterday. Most ammo and complete guns were way over priced. Did find some 5.45x39 for 30 cents per though. Cleaned him out of it. So there were some deals to be had, just had to dig a little.

Well, you guys have talked me out of going. lol It wasn't very hard though.

I had thought of walking a couple of pistols around to sell, but I'll just do my usual and try here. Just too cold and windy for an old fat man to stand in line.

Forgot about this,  till this am. See a couple of dealers that had broken down boxes of ammo. & repackaged in small brown paper bags,  10 rds ea.

People grabbing ammo, like water in a disaster zone.

Another show next month. Might want to camp out ahead a few days, if you wanna get in.  Just saying......

WOW! 10 round bags, what would one do with only 10 rounds? 

I half agree with hipower, too old and fat to stand in line. But I'm not selling, never again. Every time I sell a gun I regret it,,,except once. Little single action .22 six gun, cheap used out of time piece of crap would burn your hand every round it was so bad.

I don't know about dedication. I having just moved here from Idaho I like taking the road trips to explore. Made a whole day of it. Not just the gun show but also googled for FFL dealers, reloading shops, surplus stores and the like around Nashville and along the way of the big loop that I did. Only thing I couldn't find I was hoping to is a guy that does parts kits and bits for old Comm-Block stuff.

Have you been to Dixie Gun Works in Union City yet? If not, it'll be worth your drive. Be sure to check out the old museum in there. They've let it run down, but there's still some really neat stuff in there.

      I’m guessing that I’m not alone when I say that I have learned a lot in 2020! I’ve learned that the grocery store won’t always have what my family needs, guns and ammunition have become something of a commodity and the Government sure isn’t going to take care of my family better than I can!
      So, yes; I’ve made some changes this year. I never owned a gun before and now there are four in my household. Although I’ve received the most training, my wife and our 19 year old son have also received training and shoot as often as we can at our local range, as well as to have added a MantisX and dry fire routine. 

      We had “enough” supplies to get through this year’s COVID quarantine, but I’m concerned that more hard times could be just around the corner and I know I could use some input, encouragement and direction from local, likeminded people. 
       
      So, my first question is, “What part of TN do you live in”?
      And secondly, “Do you have a group of like minded, local folks that help you prepare for difficult times?” and if you don’t have anyone, do you have any interest or desire to do so?
      As a response to my own questions, I live in Franklin, TN and would very much like to connect with people who want to build community, help share prepping ideas and be a “friend close by”, which is better than a brother far away...
      Thanks,
      Ray
