Man if it's anything like it was in August. I sure hope not. Insane long lines. I was there and left! Showing 900 tables instead of the 1400 normal. Masks also probably. I think I'll wait until 2021. Hopefully it will be back to normal by then.

Expect 2 hour wait lines. Better to go on Friday afternoon.

Between panicked buyers and shortage of everything, think it'll be a cluster.

Interesting they are having it. What are the chances of there being any ammo there?

There will almost certainly be ammo, but you might not like the prices.

Went to the last show. Ammo was more than precovid. But it wasn’t terrible. I expect it to be worse. Not as many firearms as there usually was. But again to be expected. The wait was a little unexpected. But once inside it wasn’t insanely packed. If you know exactly what you are looking for, then I would be surprised you couldn’t find it.

I went to the very first show there and have been to many there. In normal times 1400 tables 1 1/2 miles if you walk up and down every aisle like I do about 4 hrs. I usually always go on a friday. In normal times the summer July show would not be crowded nice and good buys. If I really needed something bad I would go now, but I don't. If you do go, you never know what you a going to see unless you go. Especially on a friday. I'm holding out until 2021.
