Cocked, locked, and ready to rock, the Sierra Vista Gun Show kicked off with a bang-bang this weekend for the first time in more than a decade.

And with upward of 42 vendors selling everything from elite precision rifles and cowboy six-shooters to tactical gear, coins, and jewelry, The Knights of Columbus Hall was packed on Saturday and Sunday for the first in a series of three shows planned at the venue in a span of only six months.

Title: Disappointed

Just my opinion but the show was pretty disappointing.  Good selection of guns but many were way overpriced especially the table with all the reload items.  Only two or three vendors accepted credit cards and they even charged 3% of the total sales price to use them.  Really?!  Sorry, but most people don’t walk around with that much cash on them regardless if they are going to a gunshow or not.  You guys missed the mark!

Title: Exactly

A friend of mine, a gun collecter, spent about two hours there, and said not much was selling, the prices were sky high.

Very disappointing show indeed. The Las Vegas gun show is still the best within driving distance. And seriously, I’m getting tired of vendors charging credit card processing fees so I can utilize my money. Apparently, this has been a big no no up until recently when there was a huge settlement that got rid of that rule.
