How was it? I really wanted to go, but couldn't. :(

The last HCGS was a big disappointment with highly inflated prices due to the sales surge.

We got there around 3:30 on Sunday and from all the hype I was expecting it to be bigger. My brother and I both bought Glocks, him a 40 and a 9 for myself. Prices were at or near what you could get in the stores, but glad I could hold several different brands and see which one I liked. The 10 minute background check was nice too.... ;)

Sweet!! I have a G22. We ought to go to the range sometime.
Which did you get, a G17 or a G19? Which did he get? a G22 or a G23?

I got this (http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/GNS139-1.html) + a G17 clip to be able to convert mine from a .40 to a 9 with ease to shoot cheap at the range.

Sweeet....I got the G19, my brother got the G23. I'll send him the link to the converter, I'm sure he'd want it.

Cool, your brother would need this one (http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/GNS140-1.html) + a G19 clip if he got a G23.

With the G19, you can use the following Magazines:
G19 - 15 round.
G17 - 17 round (you can get a spacer to extend the grip if desired)
And finally the 33 round magazine originally designed for the full auto glock pistols:

Just be warned that 'cheaper than dirt' does not live up to it's name. It is usually one of the more expensive places to buy from.
