Gun show report: 2 Guy’s Gun Show, Sarasota


gun show

2 Guy’s Gun Show, which was held Saturday and Sunday in Sarasota’s Robart’s Arena, reminded me of the way gun shows used to be.

Most of the dealers were local. Prices were reasonable, and there was a lot of product moving out the door.

One friend got a fantastic deal on a Glock. Hopefully the deals are coming back!

Of course the topic everyone wanted to to talk about – at least to me – was the situation with Suncoast Gun Shows,  whose owners have threatened to ban any exhibitor who dares to attend another promoter’s show.

Most were curious if Suncoast had sent anyone to the Sarasota show to check up on the dealers, as they have threatened to do.

If there are any repercussions, please let me know.
