    Probably be there Saturday AM; we're in the area this weekend visiting one of the young'uns at college.

    I'm always keen to see if any rusty old 1873 Trapdoor Springfield parts or $1500-$2500 ex-CMP Garands have sold since the last show . . .

    Paul, I'll explain for Noah...the FOD show at Allentown has stagnated very badly. Don't get me wrong, they're nice folks and I'm not judging, but a lot of folks don't go but once every two years or so and even then, it's the same stuff- even the same guns, sometimes.
    On the other hand, the members/dealers are nice folks, ready to lend a hand or give out info when they can.
    A few of the dealers have CMP-grade Garands that are...a bit inflated in price, maybe, is a good way to put it.

    As far as buying a Garand from a show its up to the buyer to be educated enough to compare CMP versus show prices and weather they want to wait a month for a CMP rifle or (I want It now). And in my opinion you get what you pay for these days. It doesn't matter if its new old or custom its a matter of knowing what you want to pay for

    I intend on hitting it Saturday. A friend of mine's son is really interested in Civil War guns, I told him it would be a good place to see a few.

    Just got back to the motel. You didn't miss a thing. Same show, different date.

    Maybe not the same show, because there were some tables missing in the back of the small hall, and LOTS of empty tables. Not a lot of commerce except for magazines and accessories and bulk ammo. Some regular dealers were absent, other dealers talking about how it's so hard to make their costs.

    Quite a few stinkers, but I brought my small jar of Vicks!

    Thanks for the heads-up. You might have saved me $7.
