Enough ammo to equip a battalion(at least)
A Boys Rifle(rebarreled to .50BMG)
A British #4Mk1 training rifle in .22lr with match sights
A snaphaunce pistol with an axehead butt
Books. Lots of books
A guy with a #1MkIII Enfield that still had the volley sights and magazine cutoff
Truly old flintlock pistols and muskets
Truly new AR variants
Did I mention pistols?
And so on.
One place had some Dillon RL550 presses for a good price but no cartridge conversions, and while it was tempting I didn't want to lay out that much for a press and then have to order more stuff before I could use it.
I saw a display case with THREE Webley-Fosbery revolvers, one a target model.
Looked over a truly odd .22 revolver; more detail on that later.
I think I walked enough to take care of my exercise for the next few days.
All in all, a fine weekend spent around shooty goodness.
There were fewer people there than last fall, noticeably so. It also seemed- to me- that the prices some people were asking for things were flat-out rediculous(even without that, do you realize how fast you could go through a medium-size lottery prize in that place?) Still, it's a bleeping big show with lots to see. You may be proud of me, I was quite restrained on the spending and came back with most of what I left with; my big buy was this
S&W .32 Hand Ejector. I've wanted one of these or a K32 for a long time, this is the first time I found one A: in good shape and B: affordable. I plan to feed it well.
So that was the weekend. Assuming dinner does not put me to sleep your regularly scheduled ranting about the news will resume later this evening.
