Sunday sounds good, maybe we could meet somewhere about noon time.

I'll be coming on Saturday.
Doesn't look like I can get any other MD AR15er to come along.
Oh well their loss.

I hope to be there early on Saturday. Expect to see me: tall, glasses, with a baby in either a stroller or in a tactical gray sling.

Same here. I'll most likely be at the York Show instead.

is this even happening today? i drove by an hour ago, and it was desolate.

It went, in the south hall where you can't see it from Cameron St. Remminds me of the old shows, before the new arena was built. Prices were so-so, with a big selection from the low turnout. I found the odds & ends I wanted, was there from about 11:30 to around 1. Ops

I was there Sunday from 11:30 - 4:00. Very light turn out. Talked to some dealers and they said Saturday wasn't much better.

Seems to me that the prices were a little higher than last time. It was a big show with lots of tables but did have the usual non-firearm related tables though. The aisles were wide but I hate when they line up the tables on an offset. I liked the show but didn't like paying the 5 dollars for parking.

Wasn't much buying by dealers or customers. A fair deal on a Colt Pre-Ban fixed handle AR15 for $1200 by a walk around. I already have a Colt Pre-Ban so I wasn't interested.

I didn't buy a thing but AR-Bob, who was with me, bought some small items.

Armabill and AR-Bob, if you noticed an old guy in a balck American Survival Guide T-shirt with a little kid in tow, that was me and Lil Ops. Sorry we missed each other. Ops

Yeah that show was pretty sparsely attended. I was there on Saturday from 12-3 PM.

I wasn't in the market for much except reloading supplies. I got 1,000 9mm bullets from TnT Reloading and some beef jerky. Can't get good jerky in Philadelphia so I have to scrounge at gunshows. Didn't see my usual jerky dealer (New Holland Meats).

Saw one good deal on HK G3 mags (something like $5 per 20 round mag). I don't have a HK91 so it wasn't much use for me.

I think pre-ban prices are coming down in anticipation of the 1994 AWB sunsetting (knock on wood). It will be interesting to see what pre-ban prices are running at the VF show immediately prior to the ban expiration in September.

I was going to wait till the Valley Forge show in September to get a pre-ban but one happened to become availiable that was almost new.

Upper was brand new and lower might of had a mag inserted in it once. All Colt and real nice. Price was fair for this time of the year. If I waited till September, my choices may not be as good even though the prices may be lower.

I made it there Saturday after all.

I bought 2K of ammo, both of 5.56; One case of XM193 and Q3131. OK, make that two half cases of XM193 as a case only had 500 rounds.

Dennis Todd was there selling M16’s*. Selling price was around $12,500 if I remember the number correct. And to think I paid him $8,000 for MY M16A1 18 months ago. Oh, is it ever a sellers market. I told him $15G for my M16. I have little doubt that price will be met around the end of the year.
But there is no way I’d sell it except as a dire emergency. I just have too much fun shooting it on Rock & Roll.

I wondwer what the York show is going to be like.

*Among other Class III goodies.
