    I went to the show planning to buy some hand gun cases. I have several hand guns without cases, and there has in the past been a dealer there that makes and sells them, and has a huge assortment.

    As luck would have it, he was not set up at the show, and I was able to find just ONE handgun case in a size I wanted among the whole 100+ dealer tables. ONE. :( And there were only maybe 5 in the whole place for sale. About the same number of rifle cases.

    Plenty of ammo, but pricey.

    A few shotgun primers. The only rifle or pistol primers I saw were a couple sleeves of 100 that looked to be 30 or 40 years old that the guy wanted $1 a sleeve for. I don't recall seeing any powder at all. And not much in the way of cases or bullets. Was definitely not a show to get reloading components at.

    Lots of guns of all flavors. Not bargain priced, but not way out of line either.

    Lots of sharp things.

    No jerky. :( The jerky guy was not at the last show either. I liked his jerky. I was hoping he would be there so I could get a package. But alas, no such luck.

    Bargain. 50 cal ammo cans with a little external rust for $3 each! I got 5. Same guy had them de-rusted and repainted for $8.

    Better bargain. Two hundred nickel plated PMC 38 special cases and (20) 1957 FA 30-06 cases for a total of $5.

    If you are ever in Elburn, I highly suggest this shop for Beef Jerkey, made on in the shop, about $22 a pound, as much or as little as you like:

    Almost as bad as a gun show without guns. :)
