This is the second installment in a review of the Mesquite Gun Show sponsored by North Texas Gun Club on March 9, 2013. In part I of the review, I covered the show opening and began the firearm pricing updates. This post will complete those updates.

Unless otherwise stated, all prices are offered as show-only by the vendor and reflect a 3% cash discount for NIB models.

GS Guns sold 30-rnd pmags for $48 and their pistol choices included a gen-3 G32C for $630 and a gen-3 G20C for $628.

Duval Arms sold suppressors and ammo, and they advertised custom barrels and threading.  Unfortunately, I did not have an opportunity to discuss prices or products with them.

Sell A Firearm had an interesting collection that included a Browning Hi Power 9mm for $700 and a Ruger Super Single Six in .22LR for $300.

Mesquite welcomed a new gun dealer in the north Texas area, Gotta Have Guns.  I would have named the company Gotta Have More Guns, but that’s just me 🙂  They are setting up shop in the Rockwell area and I enjoyed my conversation with the owner, Frank Driska.  They will be at a lot of future shows, so expect to see more updates from GHG.

That completes the firearm pricing updates.  Tomorrow, I will cover ammo prices and selected offerings from other vendors.
