I wish I could. That jack hammer I had to leave to go get last weekend from the shoot turned out to need a rebuild. The rental place is giving me credit to get another one this weekend. I did manage to bust up an hours worth of patio though

Anyone goin to the Columbus show stop by my table. I should be set up for Busse Combat knives.

Where's the Columbus show at and when does it close? I'll be in Cleveland Saturday morning, maybe I can zip down 71 and take the round about way home.

Is the Columbus show inside the city limits with all of the stupid rules and permits required?
Or is outside the city where a person can buy without the prints and bullshit?
Link Posted: 8/20/2004 5:30:07 PM EST
Around 3:15-3:30pm, there was maybe 15 vehicles in the lot, a few backed up to main door, and a couple at SW door.


When I left work, it was raining god, but there was approx 35 vehicles in the lot at Hara around the Ballarena. Might be ok, unless more vendors showed up after I left.

This concludes the monthly Friday funshow visual vendor report from the service dept directly across the street.

Took the boy to Cincy to drop my forms and $200 to the C3, and went to Hara around 3:30..... nothing spectacular, Model-1 and there inflated prices for their used stuff, no prices on those cans of used beat up mags, the 30's were trashed, had a load of 20's though.

The A-Z guy had some bullets and primers I wanted, but he no take plastic.... Superior had Berry's bullets, but do not stock the 9mm 147gr bullets for my quiet needs, just the 115/124 flavors.

Started to set up for another run of 556 in 1-fire Wolf again tonight................ NO SMALL RIFLE PRIMERS IN THE DRAWER!!!
Gots to stop at English I guess on way home Monday.

Uzi mags for $16 at 3 different vendors, I'll have sis pick up at Ammunition Store instead I guess.

glad I only had a 20 minute drive to the PRO show up here. Really wasn't much on the dealers tables to get my eye... only saw one guy selling lots of ammo but no real deals so just got some spare parts and a big bag of stripper clips from Sherluk and an 870 express combo from a guy walking around.

Now the thumb hurts from loading 1000rd onto clips. Hope it don't hurt my Highpower tomorrow

I went to the show, was gonnna sell a amd -65 but forgot the folding pin and spring so didnt bother.Figured if anybody bought it they would want to be able to convert it.. Didnt see anything too exciting either but I didnt think there was a good crowd it was Sat about 10:00am

Stopped by @ 3:00 on Saturday - # of tables down by ~10% from last month. A grenade would probably not harmed any buyers.

Ex Buckeye here

Grew up in SW Ohio ( Miamisburg - West Carrollton area )

Have been in the Seattle area for around 15 yrs now. Fun shows out here are pretty common , but this is a no class III state ( sucks ) and most of the vendors are peddling over priced junk.

Next time I am back there visitng I hope to catch a show in the Dayton area to see what that area has to offer.

I am usually after AR/AK/HK

just dropping in to say hi

I made it to the fun show today. Had a new XD-9 SC follow me home along with 750 rounds of 9mm, and 500 rounds of XM193 .... I was pretty happy. Even left there with about 400.00 still in my pocket for some sunset goodies im gona have to order off EE ...............
