Today is Gun Appreciation Day.

We aren’t following it the way we did with Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day or Empty Chair Day.

But a reader did to go the Jacksonville Gun Show today, and sent in the following comment, photos and video.

One hour wait to get in the gun show!

Also, we talked to a guy who said that he was only there because he wanted to go to a local gun shop called “Shooters”, but when he got there he “couldn’t get in the parking lot”, so he decided to go to the gun show.

Note in the video how far the line stretches towards the building on the far left beyond the parking lot:

Update — That same reader has followed up:

Decided to go to Shooters — place is packed/nuts.

One customer told me was mad because gun he wants is now $150 more than it was a month ago + store has two box of ammo limit per customer because they are running out.
