    Just to add to my weekend gun show experience, I felt bad for the guy who bought the "original" Winchester 30Carbine from a seller.
    It was priced at $1300, I don't know what the guy paid for it but he sure was proud of showing it off to anyone who would listen.

    It wasn't original...

    You've caught more good deals at a single gun show then the rest of the board has in all of 2017. I think that's proof that the gun shows or your way are not the same as they are on the eastern edge. Good to see that

    Winchester receiver, mixmaster parts?
    The time for courtesy was yesterday. Now, time to crush them and destroy them, if possible.

    Winchester receiver but the stock was a later replacement, incorrect rear sight...

    It was a $850 shooter at most imo.

    I've always felt the smaller shows produce the best deals.
    The CZ came from a private seller with a table full of Colts.
    It definitely didn't fit in with his obvious collecting habits, so I figured he took it on trade and made an offer, me having a C&R meant he didn't have to leave his table to wait for a transfer to be done.

    The guy with all the reloading stuff just wanted to get out of reloading in his shop, I know he was selling at cost or below.

    One could have had their pick of sub $500 ARs, half of which were private sellers.

    Now don't get me wrong, there were most certainly sellers with grossly overpriced crap.

    One of them I had the following interaction with.
    I was carrying around a Romanian M69 .22 with a replacement magazine and that someone had removed the sights from and added a cheap scope.
    One dealer who had piles of mags asked if I was selling, I said yep, or trade, he asked what I wanted for it and I told him $125.
    He goes into how he's been in the business for years and he couldn't sell it for a profit for that, how he didn't want to insult me with an offer...
    I said I'd do $75 in trade from his table.
    Noooo, no money in it...
    I turned and a guy standing there says did you say you wanted $125 for that?
    I said $100 cash takes it.
    He took it and that dealer huffed off.
    It was pretty funny.

    Been saving up for a FN Fiveseven, go to the gun shop to handle it and bring it home, but then in the corner with the rest of the 1911's it caught my eye. In all its glory was a Coonan .357 Automatic. I asked to hold it. It was love at first sight. It was in unfired condition with adjustable trijicon sights, 3 mags, 2 custom holsters, and 2 sets of grips. I took it to the range and put 100rds down the pipe with 0 issues.

    Hey 5-7 versus 3-5-7! Seems close enough. Sounds like a neat find. What are the FNs going for these days?

    I had to look this up and found a picture. It says that it shoots .38 also. Is that correct?
