I think maybe two vendors had NVGs. One had older stuff, the other Gen2 Russian or Chinese setups.
At the last show, one of the small private sellers had a US Property marked PVS-7 for $900 asking. There was a crack in the housing and he said it functioned fine. There's one seller from CT who stocks some brand new night vision, including PVS-14s.

I haven't seen "cheap" MP5 mags there since late 2018 or so. There were two date coded 15s at $45 each or $80 for both. One of the surplus vendors from OH had a bin of date coded 30s at $60 each. I got the one LE only marked one at $45 and two H&K mag couplers at $40 each.

Iíll have to keep an eye out for those. Iím slowly saving up for a PVS14 from TNVC, but a -7 for under a grand would be worth a look. Youíre sure that wasnít just a housing?

He said it was complete and working and that serious buyers could try to find a way to test it. I guess someone could go to the bathroom and cut the lights?

Got there around 2:00 today (Friday). 10 minute line to get in. VCDL and VA candidates working the line hard.

Show didn’t feel mobbed, though it was getting busier as I left around 4:45. Vendor mix, product mix, prices and availability all felt about as usual. Didn’t get the OMG Panic vibe, but a lot of the dealers were clearly not happy at how things are going with the VA legislature. Saw a solid number of people doing paperwork on guns.

My checklist:
1) Brought a friend who’d never been
2) Bought some nice Mecgar mags for the household CZ pistols.
3) Bought my first poly 80 project (wish me luck!)
4) Put some cash in the MSI bucket
5) Got a healthy feeling bear hug from Rack, who looked pretty great.
6) Got back across the river without too much drama at the Legion Bridge.
7) Having a beer and watching p80 how-to vids

Thank you, both, for your reports.

Iím hoping to go tomorrow. Anyone looking for stuff post it here, but be forewarned I own mostly AR15s and Glocks, and donít reload, so my ability to recognize other stuff is limited...

Went today right at 1PM. Dennis Todd had a big box of MP5 mags (maybe 40 or so), most date coded and a mix of LE marked and not. Some in like-new shape. $75 though but better than the rest I noticed from other dealers. Grabbed a real nice one as I was looking for one too.

Also, not sure if it’s been mentioned yet or not but you can buy tickets online now (nations gun show website) and skip the line. Lot of pissed-off people when a handful of us that had the e-tickets walked right up at 12:58 and were let in just before the ticket line opened.

Got there about 1:30 stopped by MSI and talked to ShafTed and Rack & Roll, made a contribution. Missed finding a Sig Sauer P226 Legion RX by 30 minutes... Settled for a P229RX. As mentioned prices and availability good. Hope the weekend brings vendors and buyers good deals. After the next two weeks Virginiaís path should be revealed... fred55
