OK a more detailed report...Lots of ammo even .22lr at semi-reasonable prices, about equal to mail order if you include shipping costs.
A lot or AR and AR uppers. There were a bunch of Ruger AR-15 for $675 to $699. This is the low end model. The funny thing was that the Mini-14 and Mini-30 were selli g side by side at $799.
Lots of Glocks, XD, S&W & Rugers in all shapes and sizes.
Very few AKs though and the few that were there were either used or CAI versions selling for $799 to $899.
I spoke to several vendors and they said business was great. They said the Father's Day weekend show is always busy and they always sell a lot.
I asked about why no AKs they said demand drives thier inventory and what I saw waa what people wanted.
While not exactly statistically siginfo can't in terms of sample size or process one can draw the conclusion that a majority of people of NOLA prefer ARs to AKs and Glock, XD, Ruger and S&W are the preferred hand gun in the area... at least this week anyway
