    Is any body else upset at all the sponsors and vendors leaving the eastern sports and outdoors show? It has been a tradition for me and my father to go every year and i may have to break that due to the fact that half the vendors i was hoping to buy from will not be attended due to the shows stance on automatic weapons and ammo.I am dare near depressed.

    Absolutely not. The sponsors did the right thing and stood up for our 2nd amendment rights. A sports show that does not promote our constitutional rights is not a sports show worth attending no matter how strong the traditional value may be.

    My point lies here...the Ruger 10/22 in my father's gun cabinet in NY made him a criminal at the stroke of the NY governor's pen. Yes, a squirrel gun is now an assault weapon in NY, and any semi-automatic gun with and 1 military style feature (pistol grip, adjustable stock, etc.) is also considered an assault weapon. This includes shot guns with a pistol grip (like many turkey guns). None of the cosmetic features change what the weapon can do...when you pull the trigger the gun goes bang and will continue to do so until the magazine is empty. Speaking of which, what is a magazine capacity cap going to do? 30 rounds shot into a defenseless crowd is 30 rounds regardless if it is shot out of one 30 round magazine or three 10 round magazines. The poker that is currently in the fire will not just affect semi-auto ARs and high capacity magazines...our semi-auto hunting guns are at risk too.

    If you're looking for a venue worth attending, there is an alternative expo this weekend in Bloomsburg. Check out the following link for details: www.earlybirdexpo.com/

      I just mentioned this in the "announcements" message board. I applaud those who chose to stay home.

        Bioguy and 007, I'm with you guys a 100%. I love that Harrisburg Pa. show and I go every year. I'm also joining the boycott, and will not attend this year. It sends out a message to other future show sponsors. Maybe the next show sponser will not such a candy a$$ and cave into the anti gun nuts.

              Too bad we let Brits try to run our business. Kick these clowns and Piers Morgan back to the homeland.

                That's quite a list! I too applaud these people for supporting out Second Amendment rights! All of us hunters and pro gunners should support each other and not be whiney because you don't like AR's. Join the NRA and lets show the gubberment just how much we love our guns!

                  Ga Hunter, I'm with you but there aren't many people with us here. There are qute a few here that would throw the AR under the bus any chance given. They would also include "High Capacity" mags also. Rest assured I'm with you.

                    Im not sure what this is about. Im implying its a sports show. In that case no need to be depressed. I used to go to sports shows until I had the epiphany that " Wait a second, why would I go to a sports show on a perfectly good weekend to go hunting"

                      WAM, Haha I saw that guy on Piers Morgan who wanted to throw him out too. The guy made some good points and honestly he said a bunch of stuff Ive alwasys wanted to say to him. Unfortunately I think he totally invalidated his points when at the end of the argument he admitted to thinking the government set up 9/11. Not that they were not legitimate points to start with but the guys on the fence arnt going to be swayed by a guy who thinks 9/11 was a setup.

                        Dcast, Gahunt- I'm with you both. Although I have never attended the eastern sports and outdoors show, I wouldn't make it for the world! Hopefully their attendance is way down due to their poor judgment. But sadly enough, I'm sure their are some guys and gals in favor of the change.
