This is part I in a multi-part review of the Conroe, TX gun show sponsored by High Caliber Gun Shows.  The show location is the Lone Star Convention Center, which I found to be quite easy to find.  Signage for the convention center itself is plentiful and it’s only a few miles of I-45, so it was a very easy trip from the Dallas area.  There were no signs advertising the gun show early in the morning, but they were posted when I left.  Even without the signs, the convention center is very easy to spot.  There were multiple entrances and plentiful, free parking, although the lot was rather full.

I arrived just before 10AM and was able to find a parking place within a couple minutes.  There was no line at that time.

The Lone Star Convention Center is a superb facility; a great place to host a gun show.  High Caliber chose well.  They also organized well, with multiple officers available to check firearms just inside the entrance followed by multiple ticket lines.  Exit and re-entry was well choreographed.

Restrooms are to the left and right on entry and there was a concession area to the left.  I gave it a try after a couple hours on the floor and enjoyed the best grilled chicken sandwich I’ve had at a show since Tyler.

This is my first trip to the Conroe show, and since it involves about 3 1/2 hours on the road one way, I budgeted four hours for the show itself.  The show appeared to be about the size of Mesquite and there were a large number of firearm vendors, so I focused most all of my attention on firearm prices.  No luck on the next gun on my list, an all black FNX 45 Tactical.

Prices listed are considered show-only by the vendor and unless otherwise noted, reflect a discount for cash transactions.  I’m changing the pricing summaries to be less verbose and, I hope, easier to scan for make and model.

I don’t normally report on unnamed (i.e. no sign, business card, usually private transactions) vendors unless I notice something interesting.  I did receive a couple emails regarding 300 BLK uppers and one of the first private vendors I ran across sold a variety of uppers, including a 300 BLK w/fluted barrel for $950.
