That may just backfire if the other non-bathers home in on your scent and their pack instinct takes over.Have not bathed from date of first post. Will be 20 days when I go Sunday. Whatever table I stop at I will be the only one there!
That's true, of course. But I, for one, like the wider aisles and smaller crowds. I've had more success at the shows when there are smaller crowds. My best show ever was very poorly attended.These shows, to survive, need the gun enthusiasts to keep them alive, the more people that stay away because they "heard" all the shows suck will ultimately be the demise of these shows.
Can probably do it in a half hour to an hour depending upon how long you browse at stuff and how many tables you stop at. It’s worth the trip IMO. If nothing else but to window shop. I usually end up finding SOMETHING that I was looking for.How long does it take to walk around this show, a normal looking at things pace? Wife wants to go in the morning.
They were, as you walk in and stand with your back to the door, the jerky was up against the back wall to the left and the hot sauce guy was to the left maybe 3 or so rows from the end.I haven’t been to the Marlboro show in years. Are the hot sauce and jerky vendors still there?
I was in there for about an hour and a half, checking out every table, stopping at three to talk and two to buy, so for me it took a little over an hour of browsing time and I walk slow.How long does it take to walk around this show, a normal looking at things pace? Wife wants to go in the morning.
Saw a guy doing molded earplugs..... not far from the jerkyWent this morning. I was underwhelmed. But I was not expecting much to begin with. Guy with the Winchesters that no one can afford was there. Someone was selling "Zombie Bats" (baseball bats with barbed wire wrapped around them). The moulded ear plug guy was not there. Gun prices were what you would expect with no bargains that I saw. Lots of bags, kydex holsters. Non firearm related items like crystals and jewelry. Next will be soaps and scented candles.
Most interesting was someone selling TSA confiscated items. I picked up a nice Leatherman Wave for $30 with sheath. And the guy had me pick out something free from some others items so I came away with a pair of Stanley Vise-grips. Grabbed some jerky and left.
