I always wait for the Brown Convention Center and Reliant Shows. I went to the Pasadena one once, and it was rather small. I would imagine that the conroe show is that size.

The pasadena shows are definitely small but the main thing I need to go for is the Utah CFP class.

Also attended a Reliant show and spent 4 friggin hours there.  It's ridiculously large

That show was AWESOME in the late 1990s, when it was at the Astrohall. The first time I went, it literally took me like 2.5 hours to go from 1 end to the other.

Now, I make multiple passes their the reliant show before leaving, and I am there 2 hours max. I'll cruise thru all the big dealers right as they open, to find the best deal on what I am looking for. Buy it, and then cruise around again to look at everything, and then make another pass to see if I missed anything.

Brown is the best, although I have never been to any others, but lots of FTF deals at the Brown, which might be good, when Uncle Sam sends troops out for all our guns. :facepalm:

How much are you looking to spend on a G19?  Have you looked into the GSSF for LEO pricing?  I will pick up another G19 through GSSF
