Hit the show this morning.  Masks mandatory (probably a good idea).   Aisles were wide enough for social distancing.

Pretty sparse crowd.  Surprisingly so.  Inventory levels were fine for the most part. Prices about the same.  Stuff was moving but I didn’t get any sense of panic buying. Dealers said Friday night and Saturday morning were busy but no overwhelming. Slow ever since    

Reloading supplies picked over except powder.  Plenty of ARs, Glocks, and most everything else was available.

I was there with a friend, both of us bought S&W model 10s from the batch of imports that was available last year, at the price Classic was listing them at so we went home happy, I also grabbed a 14" Contender barrel in .35 Remington and some .50BMG ammo. Prices I noticed fell between pre-panic and early panic levels, nothing terrible.

That is, until I saw the Garands, being used to CMP prices. The cheapest Garand I saw was $1300(I know of several that have sold in the area at that price range so not out of line) and IMO looked like the current field grades. Neither of mine are for sale, but open market prices are fast approaching a number that will change my mind.

I bought powder, primers and bullets from Bob's on Friday night.  He had plenty then.
