Will be there all weekend. Missing the PR match to which I really could have used as a relaxation tool. Been a rough week.

Hey Josh were you there today getting ready? If so, which one were you, the guy in the black polo?

NoAim, we are at the end of H2 backing up against CY, the parts guy. We have nine tables in the same island.

Hope to see some of you there this weekend!!
BTW, Sat I will sport my custom ARFCOM shirt complete with screen name!! Yea, I am a dork.

I probably won't recognize anyone, but I'll be there. Anyone know if there will be any 100% recievers on site for sale?
*edit* oops, I'm refering to an AK reciever, forgot to specify.

There's usually a few. My regular contact for Mega lowers doesn't have any this time though.

I spent too much money again.

1900 rounds of ammo (7.62x39 and .308).

New carry piece = P2000SK (ouch).

Sigh...looks like Ramen for me this month...
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 9:12:37 AM EDT
Nice carry piece!!! I'll buy it off you for $3.50.

I'm going today and will probably spend way to much.

I went Friday afternoon and thought it was pretty good. I think there was only 1 beef jerky table, 1 beanie baby table, and 1 paintbrush table. A lot of tables weren't ready to go, but that was OK because they were mostly airsoft. There was a fair amount of stuff that interested me.

I met a nice guy in the back next to the hotdog stand and we talked about building AK's.....

Keith's had an assembled Tantal which was pretty cool- gotta build mine now...

The only thing wierd was ammo- only 1 of the ammo dealers had 7.62x39 in FMJ (had to lug a case of 1440 out the door and explain it wasn't a gun to the short little female cop at the door), and only 1 of them had 5.45.

As I remember from when I was in the biz, shows get better in the fall and winter and suck bigtime in the summer.

Oh yeah, I saw a few mid '90's MAK 90s in the styrofoam boxes for $450 or so- geez the most I sold them for was $240 back then. Kinda cool to see some of them surface again- brings back memories of unshaven, flannel shirt wearing beer belly rednecks busting my balls for 20 minutes about an $89 Chinese SKS that was used and whether it had a milled or stamped trigger guard and if the barrel was pressed or threaded and how that made all the difference in the world for accuracy and then go buy the same thing from someone else for $0.99 cheaper.

Yeah, those were the good ol' days. still have 2 of the Chicom 75rnd drums I bought back then... @$27 a pop... to go along with the SKS-M that I got for $125. Took it home and found out the drums wouldn't fit so I went and bought a poly folding stock for $30, dremmeled it to get those drums in... and then came Clinton's ban and every thing went crazy.

yeah, anybody see any AK recievers? My roommate told me there were a few romanian kits... any others?

Im debating on going (prolly will), im just trying to see how much cash i should take. NO CARDS this time!
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 5:33:07 PM EDT
For 7.62x39, the same dealer had two different kinds of FMJ. The Zimbabwe bras cased (1400 round box...I bought the same one), and some Brown Bear.

BTW, the guy that had this (not MiWall) is also the company that I buy my JHP 40S&W reloads from for $60/500. Good stuff, cheaper than Wolf.

I picked up 500 rounds of their .308 reloads...we'll see how those go.
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 8:58:17 PM EDT
The guy in the back left of the room past the hotdog stand had a polish underfolder kit without the underfolder for $120. Doubt he still has it. The barrel was already removed and the metal was new. He also had a greasy Yugo and the front end of an AMD65. That's about all I saw except for already assembled AK's at Keith's etc.

I'll be going Sunday :)

Came home with this lil beauty.



Then I got some 00 buckshot, a zipup pistol case, some clp, surefire light.. few other little things

Overall was a pretty good show. Just lacked bigtime for ammo which was depressing. I wanted 5.45, but the only stuff I saw was HP.....

Did you check with Josh (gastonglock30 on arfcom)? He had some Barnual 5.45 FMJ on Saturday when I was there. He has it every show. You might want to IM him if you need some before the next show. Sadly the price is going up on all the Russian ammo.

Alright, FINE. If people want to play "Gunshow Image Porn" so be it.

1) 500 rounds .308 Reloads (i.e. lead downrange)


2) 1440 rounds Zimbabwe "Cheetah" 7.62x39 FMJ (copper jacket, brass cased) (i.e. Practical Rifle)


3) 2 more mags for my H&K USP .40 FS (i.e. range mags)


4) The whole kit and kaboodle for the H&K P2000SK .40 (i.e. the new carry piece)


5) The beauty shot. H&K P2000SK .40 V3 DA/SA w/ decocker. These are just entering the US now. Previous versions have all been "light" DAO, what H&K dubs their "LEM" trigger at 7.5-8.5 pounds.

That's too bad. I've tried their .223 with not-so-good results on a brand new un-lubed AR. Not enough gas coming back to fully lock the hammer in the disconnector. Black Hills worked okay. In my friend's M4, it also worked fine. So I think no-lube, plus a bit undergassed cased the problems. Kinda cool having a 2 round burst AR for a while though.

However, I'm in love with the .40 S&W reloads. Good stuff. It feels no different ballistically than Winchester, Federal, etc. with perfect reliability so far in a USP.

We'll see how the .308 runs though the AK.

I think that was one of the best shows I've been to at the Expo Center in a couple of years
at least. I bought a suppressor and a few hundred dollars in ammo. There were definitely fewer jerky/beanie baby/airsoft tables.

We almost didn't make it in when the door nazi yelled at one of my pals for not having his
AR upper checked before he came in. She seemed to think it was a gun, and of course we
didn't.

I kept my eyes open for an arf.com shirt, but I didn't see any. I guess that shows how un-focus'd
I am at a gunshow! ;-)
