Can you give me any better info as to the place of the E Peoria show? I know where the expo gardens is at, and can halfway get my way around Peoria. I know the main landmarks fairly well. I will be coming from the south,

Thanks,

I'll probabably show up on Sunday Nov. 2nd. for a little while.

Now that the sun goes down before I leave work, the chores have to wait for the weekend.

I'll probably go on Saturday, if I get done pheasant hunting (OPENING DAY!!!) soon enough.

I went to the Peoria gun show yesterday (Saturday) and didn't leave with a damn thing. This one was a waste of time for me, except that I had to renew my range membership. Hopefully, next year will be better.

I got a box of bullets (components) on the cheap!

Winchester/Nosler CT Ballistic Silvertip 22 cal 55 grain for $13.00/100!

The guy saw me looking at them and said he had those on his shelf for 3 years and practically gave them away.

I also got 15' of cannon fuse!

I saw no cannon fuse! I got some stripper clips, and a couple of mags from the magman.

Went to Gander Mountain afterwards, spent some money there too.

Bloomington is tomorrow. Last year at this time, it was a decent show. Anyone else going?

Guess no one else went? It was a decent show. I missed an m1 carbine by 30 seconds. Guy was aiming it at the wall, when I noticed it. I walked over, and he had bought it. There were a couple of other ones there, but they were high. I got some new straps for my pack, and a couple of cleaning brushes. Overall it was a decent show. There is one on Springfield coming up in a couple of weeks, it is usually pretty good.
