Many show specials, also many people bumping up their "store" price and claiming a "show special".

Best way not to be fooled, do your homework on what gun you want, get quotes etc, and compare to show prices.

Show was busy! Sukkeled to get to stalls and actually hold the gun you're looking for...

Also agree with Stuart, I was looking on Saturday at some strip LEDs and thought I'd hold back for the show and the LEDs were more expensive at the show. A lot of stuff was definitely not "special show" pricing.

The show was interesting and there were a number interesting things hunting and non-hunting related. There were some Russians even selling AK's, some awesome stuff that was a little outta my "nice to have" price range.

What I did find a little unacceptable was the pricing on food etc, I paid R128 for 2 x burger/chip/coke. A really small cup of coffee was R20.

Ya, that's why my boet and I popped out to Harvard Cafe (grand central). Also went downstairs to try find food. Absolute rip off! Harvard was so much better!
