Gun shows have been irrelevant to me for years.
Mauser Werke, Schmidt-Rubin, Colt, Walther, HK, Weatherby, Browning, Ruger, Beretta, Savage, Bushmaster, Marlin, Mossberg, Saiga, S&W, Sig Sauer....a few friends of mine

When there is no inventory of guns you can't expect many people to set-up at a gun show.

What TC were the sheets? I got a set of 1700 for $30 right before Christmas. A like deal at a gun show would have been my best luck at one yet.

I go to sell. Everytime I post things on Armslist I get tons of out of state people who want to deal with shipping and all that hassle. I'll pass.
$0 of an NRA membership goes to legislative action or court battles. Not a dime. Only money contributed to the NRA-ILA or NRA-PVF. Second Amendment Foundation is a solid alternative.

Last weekend this same friend was at Cabela's purchasing a handgun. He was #128 in line for a background check. It took hours.
I was at the Cabelas near Olympia WA several weeks ago, after many months of not stopping there.

Found, yes, a crowded gun counter. But what was interesting was the several computer terminals set up to fill out and, I guess, print the federal forms. So they were completed (by the purchaser) even before their number was called and the deal made. The rest of the form had to be completed at that point, of course.

I don't know if there was also a way to do early completion of the WA state form for pistol purchases.

Who knows that this post has nothing to do with the very good gunshows available to him every month.
