[vent on] Went to the Princeton, Illinois gun show Saturday. In the past it's not a bad show - probably not big by some people's standards, but not bad. This time it pretty much sucked. I went looking for mags, of course, in addition to some other stuff. It's like everyone who was selling mags got together and decided that $20 was the price de jour. 20's, 30's, whatever. $20. Except for some really crappy Okay's that were $17.50, and the guy with the NIW Centers that were $35. Basically, no joy on the mags. [/vent off] Not too many AR's, and I think I only saw one under a grand. Couple post-ban Colt HBARs for $1,000 - $1,200. But all was not lost. I picked up 1k of '98 Lake City for $165 with an ammo can, and some .22 Colibris. I also got some green followers and a stock wrench to put the telestock on my pre-ban (looks nice now). I was bummed about the mags. I guess it's getting unrealistic to think that a deal will be found at a show. Thanks for listening.

Did you have a good time at the show anyway?

That's why I don't go to the gun shows anymore. Princeton, IL, Princeton, IA, or Davenport. No good deals anywhere.

Try going to a gun show in central OR. Bring your KY and wear barbedwire skivies...

Gun shows are always fun. Even if you don't buy anything.

Eric, I went to the November event of this: [url]http://gkensinger.home.mindspring.com/pvsamain.htm [/url] It was impressive (by local show standards}. I plan on attending the next one too, with a couple other local members on 12/1. Let me know if you want to meet up for lunch or something. [8d]
