I live only 2 miles from the Dome Arena. So naturelly the weekend that they are hosting the show I will be 3,000 miles away in Vancouver, BC. Seems my company wants me to take two weeks training up there.

Check out this link for shows in western NY:


It is updated on a regular basis.

Don't think I'll be making the Rochester show this fall. Saturday is busy and Sunday is my precision rifle match...

i think im going to try and stop out, but due to my work schedule i cant say whether it will be 24th or 25th...even then, it'll probably be a quick mission to snag mags and ammo and then bounce.

How was the show? Sharky, EdA., pzjgr ?

Hamburg Show is coming up, but I dont know what weekend.

Eh, it isn't as good as it has been....quite a few empty tables in the Dome, and the back room was very sparse.

I think its a combination of fuel costs (dealers from further away have to make much more for the weekend to make it worthwhile), not to mention I guess they keep jacking up table prices.

Entry is up to $7.00...if these shows keep upping the entry for less dealers, they are going to get less through the door.

There was some good stuff there though, and I found a few things, including a spare Mauser HSc mag for a good price, a few good books, some German field gear items...mainly small stuff.

The Hamburg show will be October 22 and 23....I'll be set up there...

Well that case of ammo would have certainly made up for the door fee and fuel costs getting there!

I got a tri-color desert camo boonie hat for hiking when it's hot since it should soak up a bit less sun than my dark tiger stripe one
I was tempted to get either an Enfield or SKS from Hammond but decided not too. the prices seemed good, but those two guns are low enough on my list of wants that the price would have to be really great for me to go ahead and get one
If he had had a PTR91 at the price he had one at at a previous rochester show (before I knew anything about PTR91s and knew the one he had was a good deal) I would have bought one
oh well, probably for the best. this way I can save up some cash, and now that my job has turned to full time hours I can definitely get something at the hamburg show if I see a decent deal

I think I saw that guy that got shut down at a show back in the spring
but this time I did notice all the ARs with banned features specifically said preban

My dad and I went on sunday, He found a mauser that was in good shape but we decided to pass it up, and i went looking for AR mags...i am spoiled by EE, because i asked a guy at one table where his GI 20-rounders were, and he got pissed at me and started slamming 2 of the most beat-ass 20's down in front of me, while grumpily mumbling, $30 each. I passed, came home and found some on EE for 10 a piece shipped, in better shape.

The problem with the gun shows are that some vendors are not a pleasure to do business with, and even if i found an item i wanted i would have buyer's remorse for funding some a-hole's power trip.

Sorry I missed y'all there, the dome is only a couple mins from my place so i usually don't make an event out of it. Food seemed better this year than before, though.

Maybe we just need to bring an ARFCOM convention to town?
