Feds were trying to set somebody up today. I took one my Nambus and a Mauser HSc for my friend with an FFL to sell at his tables. He called me a few hours later saying somebody wanted to haggle the price. "No dice," sez I. "Price is firm."

I called my friend later & he said the guy trying to buy it was a HS student from NY who had a story about visiting his grandmother here. He said if the guy took it for the full price, he'd call me to come over & do the deal. I said it was an obvious set up & no way would I sell to an out of state kid. He wouldn't, either!

The bad part was that if they both sold, I really didn't see anything I wanted to buy with the $. Saw a Russky SKS for 500 that didn't look too bad... but I already have one.

Lots of people there but fewer vendors. Primers & powder lady wasn't there - scope guy wasn't, either. Saw a 38-40 Uberti Bisley clone I liked last show, but - nope. He was also a no show.

So we'll see what happens. I did see a Marlin pump 25-20 I'd consider if the seller would haggle. Gots plenty of ammo for that caliber.

Otherwise I saw friends & had a good time swapping lies. SW

ive not encountered a sting at a gun show yet - dont sell much at them and would go through ffl if i did - always have when i bought , the only stings ive had directed at me were on these sites - one at another and one here years ago but both dealt with in short order - i dont buy illegal full auto firearms on a site - i dont buy full auto at all or any illegal gun period ,

we have a show coming up this month here that is generally a good one at the fair grounds coliseum building in st paul , always make the show - even if only to hang out with friends and my son looking forward to it ,
