Hi Y'All...


Well, this is a great show if you are into T-shirts, nutso bumper stickers, cordura-everything, WWII rifles, all manner of WWII "miscellaneous", AKs, "tactical"-everything, $20 swords, two-for-$5 butterfly knives, ancient .35 Remington Contender barrels, 10-year-old ammo at nearly-current retail, piles of black/stainless Bad-Axx-looking handguns, and overpriced cheap muzzleloaders - most at full retail or more regardless of condition.

The relatively few tables with actual hunting guns were mostly fair-to-miserable condition old shotguns and poor-condition old .22 rifles - all at current retail minus 50 cents. The few hunting rifles were either used plain-Janes with cheap scopes priced above $600 or beat-up Win. 94s and Marlin 336s priced mostly at about $450 or higher.

There is something about a .300 Win. Mag wearing a Simmons 3x9 scope and medium-sized Cokes for $4.00 that gives me the vapors.

Bummer to say it but, being just a hunter and pistoleer, I am pretty tempted to just write the Dayton shows off as a total waste of gas and time.

Yup happened here in Kansas back in October. The cheapest Mossin was $250. Yup and it only got worse from there. I just go to pick up mags and ammo since no-one around here has a fair price, I usually save 30-40%. One dealer had the audacity to ask me if I was gonna look at what he had. I asked how much he wanted for his 91/30. He said its marked at $269 but I could get it for $219 I laughed so hard it hurt.
