I walked by a table that had an Olympic Arms M-4 type rifle on it.After talking with the dealer he told me these were the same type of M-4's the Special Forces were using in Iraq and Afghanistan. I haggled with him and got him to come down off his list price a $100. So I walked out of there with a new rifle bayonet and a mag for $1600. How did I do?

And no I didn't buy it, but I couldn't believe it.

I'm surprised you could haggle a vendor down. He must have known you meant business.

Local Gunshow today, Oly's were $6xx for the plinkers and $899 and slightly up for the other Oly models. No shortage of Oly's there at all.

Bushmasters were in the 1000-1200 range, maybe $100 more than before the election, but not much. There was a $1700 high end varmint rig, but noone was looking at it.

Of course there were some dealers/gougers somewhat higher, but that also normal.

Zero stripped lowers for sale. Some lowers with LPK installed and butt stock for $350ish.

Its usually not a big show for EBR's, 1 serious dealer with a great selection of Oly's and a few other tables with a few rifles or glass top cases of parts. seemed like people were not real interested in the black guns present, but were gobbling up ammo at the one big dealer that was selling ammo. AK's seemed much more popular and more heavily discussed than AR's.

Century AK's for $650 on up.

I went for entertainment purposes (people and market watching), and to buy some full size targets.

If that was West Lebanon, I'm going there tomorrow. Mainly for the same reasons: entertainment, tagets. Also some cleaning stuff.

But who knows...

It seems like most people around here with any interest in firearms already own them, so we're immune from the panic to some extent.

I think this is the gun show going on at the hotel I'm staying at tonight. Fireside Inn?

We're in town for a show at the Leb. Opera House tonight. I walk into the hotel and damn if there isn't a gun show going on!! Might have to take a look around tomorrow AM before I head off for our next show tomorrow night.

Can't buy anything, tho. Damn TSA regs...
