    So i went to the HC gun show in houston today and saw some very good prices on XDs! they had the new bitone 45compact for $460, a bi-tone SC for $419! if i wasnt short on cash i would have bought something in a heartbeat! Anyway, in a few weeks theres another gunshow with the same vendors so anyone wanting to get a good deal on an XD should check it out!

    It kills me that I am currently down here in Houston on business, but I couldn't get to this show. I would love to see how Texas shows compare to our pathetic ones back in California.

    I've bought all of my guns at that gun show. I'll be at the next one in June but in the market for my first 1911. FYI, be sure to bring cash. They charge a couple extra percent for credit card.

    I think you mean the 17th and that will be the Houston gun collectors show. The biggest show in Houston. But not like it was say 5 years ago.

    no that's the reliant one the "Houston Gun Collectors Association" .. i'm talking about the George R. Brown " High Caliber" that will be here again on Jun 7th n' 8th

    They call it the biggest since they make room for the antique guns and historic things .. also for peope that sells jewerly and such :rolleyes:

    have ya'll checked out the pasadena gun show at the pasadena convention center .. we sometimes go . it small but they have free parking.

    I went to that Brown show and bought the only OD green with stainless slide XD45 there - I got in when the show opened.

    Sometimes - the larger vendors don't like to go down any.

    However, the guns are also all scratched up from people picking them up by then. When I wanna buy something - I get there when they open.
