    Hey now, Scottsguard usually is at this show and his prices are typically very good, so there will be some that are not. Not speaking for the others. At least Blooomsburg has good food which most shows do not. The animal shelter folks do a very good job at that.

    I didn't see him there today, sadly. He always has some great revolvers and I was in a buying mood! Durnit!

    Actually, I haven't seen a crowd like that at a gunshow since the panic buying during the Obama Administration. Jeezsus, it was crowded!!

    Nothing was jumping out at me today. I bought some .38 snap caps and a nice early 20th Century Finnish puukko, bjt nothing earth shattering. Even the surplus guy outside didn't have what I wanted and his tent was CRAWLING with people.

    I talked my buddy out of buying a pump .410 bore when I showed him that.the barrel was bent.

    About a 45 minute, smooth as silk flight each way to a jam packed house. It reminded me of Zern's in the
    good old days. Signed up with the GOA, chatted with a nice looking chicky soliciting signatures for her House Representative, bought a few stuffed peppers, food was nothing memorable but I ate a breakfast sammich and got a set of reloading dies for the .44 SP, which are not too common at the shows. Also snagged two ammo cans outside at $5.00/ea, they were $9.00/ea at Oaks last weekend so I passed 'em by. Oh, and a little cast iron Barrett .50 for the top of the gun safe, the cat's building quite an armory up on her perch.

    Didn't say all the prices were high, but I've yet to be at a gunshow (in the nearly 20 years I've been going to gunshows) where the majority of gun prices weren't horrendous.

    Left my opinion in the gun show thread room. I thought it was better than normal and firearms were flying out of there. Parking was the most packed I have ever seen it there. Good time. Dude sold out of all this 50 and 30 cal 5 dollar cans.

    Anyone else get a bit of joy out of a gunshow having the name "Bloomberg” in it?
