A quick Wanenmacher Gun Show wrap up.
My feet hurt.
That is all.
Sorry, couldn't resist that one. The show was a madhouse on saturday and only slightly less so on sunday. I ended up not seeing any of the show except for what I caught friday after setting up. I had a couple of people complain that they would have bought something on saturday, but they couldn't get to the table for the crowd. I didn't get a second to even sit down both days. The tables we had were right in front of the concession stand and I couldn't get half a moment to even go there to eat. Saturday started out with a table full of Glocks of all makes with more underneath. Saturday ended with one lone Glock 23. Anything that was even remotely compact went. We had 4 pallets of Remington .223, the last of which went sunday morning by 9.
On the non-feet-divorcing-me side, aside from a couple of small things like a scale and calipers, I'm all set up for reloading. A friend from here in town picked up everything and built a 24" bull barreled varmint-er AR-15 with a nice scope and bi-pod. He started with nothing but a bare lower and by 5 pm sunday he was pushing the take down pins in. Not a bad deal. He also won the deal of the show award by finding a very rare trap door rifle for $75. The rifle is easily worth 100 times that. And yes I meant 100 (one hundred).
I want to send out a big thanks to Old NFO. First for getting me the C&R application. Second for pointing me towards Norgon's ambi-mag release. Third for swinging by when he'd spotted any deals for me. I just with I'd had a second to take advantage of them. Next time... Next time.
All in all, I'd have to give the show a big two thumbs up. For the largest gun show in the states, it's definitely a mecca for enthusiasts of all sorts. If you've never been, it's a must. Just make sure you've got a copy of a local FFL's license so you can get the transfers done if you're from out of state.
