    You guys need to be thankful and know how lucky you are to live in one of the few states that would allow a booster club to profit from anything gun related. That would never happen in this midwestern town.......kinda makes me want to move up there!

    It was a nice show.

    I saw a couple of things that caught my eye but scored a sweet deal on the way out with a guy who was setting up very late on Sunday.

    Beautiful weather for a drive, nice company (a shooting partner) for the trip out and back. Ran in to a few folks that remembered me from my gun days in the 1980's.

    Nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

    Cheers,

    David

    It was a pretty good show. Another .375H&H followed me home, and I picked a KOA Jaeger boning knife for a good price.

    I was able to bring home another Remington TI in 7mm-08. Couldn't believe the amount of people in the first couple hours yesterday. Nice to see the good turn out.

    My experience wasn't as good. I saw a lot of overpriced junk there. I saw a ruger GP100 that caught my eye, but the guy wanted too much for it. I ended up going to sportsmans and buying a new one instead.

    Decent show but not as good as in past days. Lots of none gun / fishing items such as food, jewerly, coins, art work, kitch knifes, and general flea market junk. One guy was even selling tires and had some samples against the wall.

    I saw a few interesting items but nothing that really grabbed out at me.

    The Palmer Lions Club is apparently still holding the line on non-shooting / fishing stuff. Hope that show has more gun stuff.

    On the postive side the place was jammed in the first couple of hours so the booster club just have made a good profit. I'll look forward to goig next year again.

    It wasn't a bad show, there just wasn't anything there I was looking for. I only had an hour to cruise through but I didn't see any bullet molds. The only thing I saw that was casting related was a small pile of unknown mixture lead ingots.

    It was VERY crowded as usual.

    It was Beeg as usual.

    I don't reely mind the non-gun items.

    I purchased some cast boolits, and a bracelet for my wife.

    I wish Ida had more time. I had hoped to go again Sunday after church.

    I'm sorry EKC couldn't make it.

    What'er the Gun Shows like in TEXUZZ?

    Ya, we could made room to fit EKC there and Iíd not gripe ifin he moved on up . . . unlike the California tree hugger types we get heíd fit right in here.

    Donít know about Texuzz gun shows but Crossroads in Phoenix is about 20 times the size of this one, imposable to take it all in going one full day.

    This one was okay but for all the shiny stuff distracting the wife from the important stuff, gun stuff. I couldnít find anything I couldnít live without though, ran into several people we hadnít seen in years though so well worth the price to get in out of the cold wind.
