One this weekend at the RIR Showmasters

And one next week at the Showplace C&Egunshows

Of course the one next week is always the better of the two,

The Raceway show would be the better of the two if you were specifically looking for "older" type guns.  There was a much better selection of guns, like 1985's, G43's, etc. than you usually see at the Showplace.  It's no where near as large as the Showplace.  It's more of a C&R-type oriented show.

The Showplace has newer guns, and newer tech guns.  It's also a much larger show, so there's simply a wider selection of stuff.    

Since I'm not lugging my carcass up there two weekends in a row, I'm planning on the Showplace next weekend.

Darn it, Ross – you called it right.

The fairgrounds had the worst show I’ve ever seen there.  I went specifically to get some ammo from Chestnut Ridge, and they weren’t there!!  

I finally bought an M-1 carbine magazine from Dark Sun to justify the trip (almost 200 miles round trip and a $6 admission for a $14 magazine!).

I suspect a lot of vendors decided to make just the Showplace.

I'll be out at the Showplace show with a couple of tables of stuff to move privately.  Too much to carry around, easier to sit on my ass ......  

I'm the big guy in the kilt....don't worry, I won't wear it to the show........

What sorta stuff will you have out there, and how will we recognize you without the Kilt to say "Hi"?

Well, I'll have a Colt MT6700C for sale with an Armalite scope mount on it, I'll have an Arsenal Inc. RPK there, some handguns, probably a bunch of M60 parts, a little of this, a little of that.

Here's another pic without the glass of single malt in front of my face:

I'm going to the C&E show on Saturday the 11th. Hope to see some of you there. I wish I had an AR15.com shirt to wear..........

I'll be the guy with the BVM Jets shirt on.

Myself and a couple of others will be there Saturday morning. I will be wearing an AR15.com T-shirt that you might see if isn't to cold in there.

How about a better list and maybe some prices?

Arsenal Inc. RPK.  Limited edition of 300 made, milled receiver, 23" barrel, blonde wood stocks.  I've run about 500 rounds through it and have the hots for another FAL, so something has to go.  Box and papers included:  $875.00 www.arsenalinc.com

I have a complete bolt and op rod for an M60, buffers, springs, etc, but I think I've got a buyer for that stuff.

Various other stuff that I might find laying around the gun room, maybe some other handguns.

Anyway, I'll see you guys out there.
