Wannamaker tulsa gun show: "normal" wait times, late am?

Do they usually have multiple entrances for the public?

For a comparison, back in normal, "pre-panic" ('13) times, was there much of a wait if you arrived about 10:00 on Saturday? Any observations are appreciated.

It will be mostly looking, and little buying at today's prices, unless a really used Sig 232 is offered at a "really Used price", or somebody wants to sell M2 Ball at current CMP prices+shipping. It might be the only large show I ever visit.

There's usually been some kind of line, but the last time I went was right around the '08 election, the first time (in this series) that people went crazy. Yes, the wait was considerably longer during a "panic" phase.

I had to park way far away, take a shuttle to the expo, stand in line, let the guards at the door inspect my pistol (and zip tie it), then enter the show via the rear entrance.

I've since decided to do my shopping off the net. Gunbroker mostly. So far.

Good luck.
