It was essentially a waste of time. I'm calling it gun control by pricing. "Buy my gun, sir? Got ammo for it? Sure - $2.50 per round! Ahhh… no thanks."

$50/pound for any kind of powder - $100 per brick of primers - $1 per round of 9mm... it was disgusting.

Hit the book vendor who had a book on American swords... for $145. Pass. The x39 I had my friend set out on his table seemed to be selling. No bites on the RPD which didn't surprise me even though nearly any old Winchester was a lot more. No worries - I didn't need​ to sell it.

Saw a rough American sword - loose wire wrapping - ray skin falling off - $750. Get serious! 1941 Gnutti Carcano bajonet with no scabbard @ $80. Woof.

I'll go back tomorrow & collect my ammo money to grab an EER scope. That guy still had decent prices.

Best news of the day? Won $50 on a scratch card when I stopped for a few gro! SW

I don't even mess with gun shows anymore. Everyone there seems to thing their stuff is made of pure gold and no one is willing to deal like in the old days.
