Back then it was is a small room. Now it fills up one side of the rec center which includes a indoor ice skating rink.

There are still hunting rifles and shotguns for sale, just not that many of them. Back in the day, members and others would bring their stuff for sale and there were more individuals selling than businesses. Now you have more businesses because many people are keeping their guns these days. ( we all know why too)

I plan to be there around 915, after the line goes down. I've frozen enough times standing in lines at gun shows.

It's a good place to sell that rifle. Another is the Allentown collectors show. A little bit of a ride but well worth it.

My wife said she was really looking forward to going with me ( she’s willing to go). Will be there.

Some buddies and I are going. Traffic looks pretty good. I like it because of the older non-black rifle items. I've bought a Savage 1899 and a Browning A5 there. I think I got pretty good deals. It is not where I'd go looking for AR's though they are showing up in recent shows because that's what is being manufactured today, no more steel and walnut. What a shame, but then the market determines what sells...

Went and liked it. Saw a couple of revolvers, a SAA and an old combat mag with 2.5”. Wife eventually went to watch the skaters. Saw very nice m1 carbines. Original. Bought nothing. Hadfun.

I didn't buy anything but there were some good deals to be had. I did get to see some old friends including Jeff (banned, I forgot his MDS name).

He is still hurting from a procedure where they replaced just about all of his blood. He's still got a great attitude and is still getting plenty of prayers from me.

I went and bought a Remington 700 in .30-06. It looked brand new and had a scope and a nice stock. I bought it because I'm building a rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor and was going to use a commercial large ring Mauser 98 action, but none of the chassis stocks use this receiver, the best I could find was Remington 700. I went online and a new receiver only; was going to cost me $325 to 400 and this rifle was $450. I could sell the stock, barrel and scope, so it was a win/win for me.
