Went to the local fun show this weekend to find a .50 bmg, not much there and nothing that would fit me as a lefty. I had a wad of cash and a wife to carry the load so we went nuts. One palet jack load later here's what we brought home: [img]http://myweb.cableone.net/fattig/dsc01326.jpg[/img] I broght home following in order of the picture: 1945 Springfield M1 Garand Imbel FAL G3 Cetme SAR-2 not in the picture was 1660rds. of .308, 1000rds. SS109, UZI parts kit, box of bakalite ak-74 mags, 480rd. tin of 7x54r. The wife was looking for a USP compact or an XD compact, neither was at the show so she came home with this sweet %95 HK P7M8 pistol for concealed carry. Needless to say it was a GOOD show:) Generic

Man, when you go to the gun show, you really go to the gun show! Have fun with all your new toys. I had a CETME which I sold, it shot ok, but the rear sight was welded on crooked. Maybe I will pick up another one someday. Until then I have a AR10 to play with. I like the FAL, that may be my next purchase.

My roomate picked up a pair of M-44 Moisin Nagants in really nice shape for 150 dollars for the pair - I think he did pretty well t

I was at the show yesterday here in Tucson and it was by far the worst show I had ever seen! Nothing but crap and overpriced crap at that. Very few exhibitors. I guess all the good stuff stays back east when it gets hot here. It was over 100 yesterday. Anyway, I was very dissapointed. Glad you got some deals.

a whole bag of beer jerky, dried sausage, and smoked cheddar sadly, like always, no money to spend on toys

I can't even buy pictures of that stuff here in Kali...well maybe a registered picture of the Springfield. There's a background check tho...

To add insult to injury here are the prices we paid:[}:D] Garand $500(barrel is correctly dated and is not a re-work gun) Imbel FAL $400 (I already have one, but for that price why not two!) Cetme $298 Sar-2 $314 HK P7M8 $750 (two mags, and a nice galco holster, plus it keeps her from shooting mine) SS109 ammo $180 for 1k rds. $200 for 1660 rds. of spanish .308 $150 for a complete uzi kit to keep my uzi running. I'm still kicking myself for passing up a Colt 1911 in .38 super for $350 and a pallet load of walther PPK's new in the box for $200 DDUBB, move to a free state like Idaho and enjoy your god given freedom!

Why would I want to move away from here? Great weather, ocean views, totalitarian Nazi dickheads everywhere. Oh yeah, and gunshows with no guns. Well, there was that black powder guy...

Well I did pick up one thing at the show over the weekend. [img]http://www.precisionairsoft.com/usrimage/sp2340.jpg[/img] in 40S&W it was slightly used but you can't really tell got it for $450.50 out the door. I think it was a good deal

No shows around these parts this weeked :(

I picked up an Imbel Gear logo receiver for $270 and an ASA AR lower for $110. I've got the Imbel barreled to an 18" Steyer barrel, and it only needs to be headspaced. I'll have the lower completed by the end of the month using a Bushy or DPMS internals and an ACE tubular stock. I know the ASA doesn't have a good rep, but it sure looks well made. I'm getting a Bushy fluted heavy barrel for it, but will eventually mount it on a Bushy or Armalite lower later on and put the ASA on a shorty configuration.

The ASA lower should be fine. Rumor has it that ASA is getting them from RRA now after Bob got sued and lost 25k to Lewis Machine & Tool. Just don't try to sell a complete rifle with that lower on it. People will see ASA and run. My only purchase at yesterday's show in AZ was a LNIB Insight M3 with batteries for $40.

innocent_bystander: I picked up on that after I got home and searched for info here on ASA. It was an impulse buy. I don't plan on selling it, anyway. I'm through selling guns. I got rid of a lot of stuff that was basicly junk that I carted around for years. Overall it was a good decision, except for my preban Colt and Bushy (which were not junk). As time marches on, I think I made a mistake there. I got good money for them, but I regret selling them. Maybe next year it won't matter.

I went to the show here, on the EE. Got to chatting with another customer, at some guys table, and low and behold he, (the other customer), had a bushy carry handle for $70. So I got an ok deal at the show... without leaving my chair!! [:D]

Beautiful stock on the Garand.You should be ashamed for stealing that.Hell of a deal on the FAL and the spanish.

Omar, you did good on the Imbel Gear Logo reciever, they are drying up and kit prices are increasing in value as well. Buy while you can boys. Generic

Take a close look to your CETME I just picked one up at the gun show this past weekend (rifle, case, 5 rnd mag, 2 20 round G3 mags, and mag pouch 415 out the door). Mine checked out ok, but one thing to look out for is a ground bolt, if that comes up send it right back to century. Check your headspace, cycle the action pull the trigger, and with a feeler gauge check the space between the bolt face and carrier should be between .004 and .020 inches if not look into over/undersize G3 rollers. Other than that have fun and buy a lot of the Portugese 7.62x51
