OK NY/NJ members:

Who is going to the Valley Forge gun show?

www.valleyforgegunshow.com/

December 17-18, Valley Forge Convention Center, Valley Forge PA.

This is *by far* the best show in the area and worth 10 Middletown shows combined.

I'm in. Are you?
Link Posted: 12/8/2005 9:24:33 AM EDT
I'll be there Sunday morning. It's much less crowded.

I'LLBE THERE WIYH MONEY TO BURN

I'll probably make an appearance, but money is extremely tight so I probably won't be buying anything (the last 2 times I said that I bought a $1500 rifle and a $350 light/laser).

FMJunkie, if you're going to be there sunday could you bring my digital camera that I left at the last NJ BLAST?

What are you so confused about?

You're driving

im thinking about going...Any idea about how far from LI ?

I used to drive to Indiantown Gap, 30 miles east of Harrisburg in under 3 hours. I think H-berg is about 180 miles away from me in SE Nassau. Taking I-78 has you going past Cabelas in Hamburg PA, about an hour short of Harrisburg and a nice stop if you have never been there, going either way. Decent restaurant, great animal displays, aquarium, etc.

What time are most of you getting there? I'm assuming that the 1130 meet up is when everyone is leaving for lunch.

DAMN. We needed to where signs. I guess it was about noon before the meet. Somebody I know HAD to buy a firearm at the last minute.
Link Posted: 12/18/2005 12:07:54 PM EDT
I saw M1-Matt and someone else (sorry, I don't remember the other guy ). I didn't make the lunch meeting because I was still looking around. I ended up buying a Tula Russian SKS.

I had a great time at my FIRST gun show. I spent a hell of a lot more $$$ than I had planned on. I also spent about 15min in my car de-linking the belted ammo that I bought.

I got a little held up buying a new pistol! M1 Matt, PK90, DWFAN, me and an off-board friend all went to Chili's for lunch after that. Saw Slidestop, he couldn't make lunch, though.

I ended up buying a new Springfield XD40 Tactical with 2 Hi-cap mags for $449. Pretty nice pistol, can't wait to try it out!



Nice choice. I bought an XD40 Service after I tried my friends XD40 Sub-compact. A few months later my father bought an XD40 Tactical. I just bought (at a previous gunshow) a Laser Devices Inc. BLAST 2 last/light combo and I can't wait to get it sighted in.

This time all I bought was a case of .308 to put through my M1A.

So what else did you buy? When I saw you all you had bought was two M1 multi-tools and a few spare parts or something .

I wanted to buy an AK, but I didn't know which ones were NJ legal and didn't feel like going table to table asking if the ones they were selling were. Oh well, I'm happy with my Russian SKS .

I got a nice M1. I was glad to have a couple of friends from this board there to guide me in the right direction.

All SA parts, good wood, and made in Dec 41. I was contemplating going through the CMP, but had rather spend the extra money and actually see what I'm buying without driving to Port Clinton.

I won't single out the guys that helped; you know who you are, thanks again!

The SKS was $260 + tax (originally $295 but I managed to bargain them down). It's a 1950 Tula (rebuild, of course!), and has the wood laminate stock (in fairly good condition, too). A number of the parts appear to be original and early, with the bolt, bolt carrier, rear sight, and a few other parts being the rearsenaled bits, and all serial numbers matching (and the arsenal rebuild bits being EP'd in the appropriate places). Overall it's not bad, and the price was about in line with what I expected to pay for a Russian. Luckily I knew a little about what I was looking for, because otherwise I might have listened to all the lines the guys selling it were throwing out. It's dirty as all hell inside, but I have it mostly all cleaned up nice now. Bore was a bit dirty, but after cleaning looks nice and sharp/shiny .

It was definitely culture shock being at that gun show. I really could get used to that ...Man, every day I wish I lived in PA more and more...There were lots of modern handguns that I was fawning over, too...

DWFAN gets the prize. I've shot it in the past, it's pretty decent. It makes great range ammo.
