  • Worlds largest gun show

    I'm off to see what parts are available for my PTR 91. Also looking for a QCB type of firearm. Of course magazines and misc. Equipment and ordnance. I always love to attend these things because it lets you know what is hot and available.

      Yep, it was a good show, people from all over the country. Parts were few and far between for what I wanted. The selections were interesting this time around. I only saw 1 IMI Uzi, the other two were clones all 3 overpriced. Lots of FNFAL's All starting at 2K. Ammo prices were not that bad. Only a few tables with ordnance, saw an old lady get a $20 discount on a landmine Good times. I only saw 3 tables with small parts but nothing modern. Seems like the trend is for the 30 carbine, they were everywhere. Saw some Intra-Tech's at $500 LMAO!

      BATFE was up to their normal tricks trying to entrap people. Saw one bump stock for $500 everybody knows what that's all about. Some full auto and we know only the Clintons can claim they had no intent and get away with it (Everybody else gets nailed - that's how the BATFE keeps control)

        M1 carbines seem to be real popular everywhere all of a sudden. They were the big sellers at both gunshows here in middle Tennessee and down at the Alabama Gun collectors show in Birmingham last month. The one thing in common was stupid HIGH prices. I miss being able to make the big Tulsa and SAR show in Arizona. Son wanted to go to the Tulsa show this weekend but Guard drill has him busy at Mustang.

          Todays show was less populated, in both people and tables. Funny thing though every one of the FNFAL's dropped 400 - 600 dollars Wish things were less expensive. Best deal I saw were 50 BMG Gold-Coins at $5 each, Silver tips $4 that's less than the American Eagle sold at the local Walmart. Their was a table with 100 linked ball in ammo can for $350. Only 1 table had a .50 for sale. There was a cheytac but only 1 box of ammo. Didn't see any P90's but 1 first gen 5.7 pistol. The UZI's sold or were traded before todays show. There were no spare parts or HK's or PTR's there were magazines and accessories but all of the trigger guards I saw were stripped. Prices on ammo went down as well, not saying I picked up anything

            Wrong question
            "Then out spoke brave Horatius, the Captain of the Gate. To every man upon this earth Death cometh soon or late. And how can man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his Gods"

              I am down to my last few guns now.you mention P-90's and five sevens sold them all out over the last few months,The last of my FN Stash.
              Keeping my Afghan Bringback 77 date {A story on this relic}And of course a few Krinks/

              why would i not.Sounds like a good time at show.Sounds like the youth Youngbloods are not into it like the Nam gen was. And the 45 guys started it all with the great bring backs.30 cal carbines and Garands did it for me. now sadly all long sold off. We all have to have a few good guns to remember and yet some have none at all. 0618171121.jpg

                    The import bans and poorly put together kits have pretty much ruined the AK for me. There were about 5 krinks at the show, starting prices were 2K. Most of those FAL's I saw were badly blemished and pitted and yet they were running at 2K the first day and were down to 1400 by the end of the show. saw only 3 37mm's and 1 BATFE plant 40mm with rifling. They were also pushing some of the 40mm ordnance at silly inexpensive prices hoping someone would take the bait and lose everything to work for freedom.

                    I almost gasped when I saw an old 80's SKS with spike running for $99 but on closer inspection of their tag it was $499 the 4 had been so badly rubbed off by people thinking the prices might come down. Only saw 2 Yugo's and they had practice grenades with them (Nothing wrong with that except the prices).

                    Still it was a fun show. Didn't see a single styre ssg69 but there were 2 real AUG's and everything else was a copy. Seems like the newer good stuff is all but gone to the collectors.

                    FWIW the ones you kept are beautiful!!!

                        I forgot to tell you the survival stats. Only one table with medical gear. Two tables with water filtration. Multiple tables with MRE's starting show 80-85$ per case, by the end of the show they were marked down to 75 - 80$ for 12 with heaters. shocked to see only 1 table with a vintage Finnish gas mask. Turns out the materials for survivalists was horrible. Good news is my acquaintances with paperback books had a massive table.

                          I used to checkout the titles of various magazines books and manuals when I went to the Monroe WAC shows around 15-20 years ago. The Puyallup shows were the BEST!!! Saw my first BAR and a water cooled .30cal belt fed there. I about had an accident.
