Went to the gunshow at the Southtowne Expo Center this morning. Lots of well-priced ammo, but lots of OVER-priced guns. Even for used guns, they were WAY overpriced.

It was interesting, but I'd love to see them branch out and do something a little more exciting like firearm demonstrations in a portable range. Or reloading demonstrations...something to make it shine a little better.

Oh, I also saw our own Mr. Clark Aposhian. Shook his hand and re-introduced myself again. Good man right there.

Anyhoo, I didn't purchase a dern thing. My buddy bought an ammo bag and some pepper spray.

Well-priced stuff included the HSM ammo and the guy selling pepper spray. The range bags at the very back-middle were well priced as well. Just didn't see anything I absolutely needed.

It's harder for me to get to the gun show at the South Towne Expo center ever since I move out of Utah County and up to Cache Valley. I'd like to have gone, but I also was just returning from business travel today and am beat.

Maybe I can catch the next one.

I think you're generally right about the used gun prices.

I also made it to the gun show satrurday. I also bought nothing. I have found though, that going gives me many opportunities to look, discuss & determine what I may next want to seriously consider buying--at a reputable dealer later.
There were also some informative booths with information ranging from law and ccw to educational materials for survival. And much more. Some things were out of place, like jewelry & coin tables--but they paid to be there and they filled the space.
I agree that there should be some available workshops, other than ccw classes. Workshops to discuss basic gun care, how to be alert to your surroundings & prevent assault, what is Utah State Law & how may it be applied--and I am sure there are many other things which would be great demos or classes--probably would be well attended too, as long as they were advertised in advance as being available to attendees.
I must say though, that I overheard a young child, about five, ask his dad if they could leave because he was bored. The father politely stated that he (the child) wanted to come and be with him (the father), so it was his choice to be there and be bored rather than spending the day playing with friends. I liked that alot. Shows that if you are going to be responsible you need to learn early that your choices in life have consequences & you have to live with them.
Overall a good experience. 8)
