The first weekend in May was rather hectic with NRA in Houston and the Ft. Worth Gun show.  I tried to cover both and ended up driving from Houston to Ft. Worth on Sunday.  I arrived in the early afternoon, parked, and walked to Will Rogers.  Then, I was greeted with a sign that due to rising costs, Premier would soon be canceling their partial reimbursement of parking fees.  Oh well, at least parking in Ft. Worth was a lot less than NRA in Houston 🙂

Since I arrived late and had very little time on the floor (relative to the size of the show), I did something a bit different.  I swept across the floor and simply noted anything interesting or unusual that caught my eye.

Firearms

Unless otherwise noted, all firearm prices are considered show-only by the vendor and reflect a discount for cash transactions on NIB models.  Some dealers offer additional incentives for purchase and those are noted by the dealer name.
