I can only find season tickets on the their site. Am I doing something wrong or is there an issue?

The big Show Of Shows in Louisville was rescheduled for this weekend (July 21-25), wonder how many of the usual dealers will be there instead... maybe just the C&R guys though.

That is all I see as well.

The last show, you had to buy tickets for specific time slots, but that requirement is gone.

Maybe they'll only be selling tickets at the door this time.

Last show June was back to normal with no capacity limits and $17 tickets covering the whole day. It was the show before that which had time slots.

I only recall seeing the long lines at opening at the last show. After that initial line cleared, there was little wait.

I was there at opening on Saturday for the last show. There was a long line, but once the doors opened, I was in within 10 minutes

Very interested in reports on the powder situation. One of the reasons I used to go to these was to buy powder without paying hazmat (yes, the ticket costs money, but not hazmat money). Running out of TAC, so need to restock...

The big reloading vendors that used to be present were not there. A few vendors had smaller amounts of powder, but I didnít check the prices. I donít recall seeing many 8lb jugs, mainly 1lb sample size.
