Re: Gun shows RANT !!
I found the only way to go, get your dealer buddy to get you in free as a worker, then set up at the entrance to buy the deals as they walk in the door. I bought some old stinky colts real reasonable!
Best gunshow stories:
1.Guy walks up with a remmy 870 on his back and looks at one of the 8000 dollar Pedro Baretta side by sides and asks "Why's this shotgun so much more expensive than mine?" My reply was "nothing"
2.A guy walks up an points at a 308 tube gun and tells his boy "that's the gun I carried in vietnam, I spent 3 years sleeping with a rifle just like that" Looks at the price tag "these things are expensive now" He asks me who made this one..."remington"...I didn't know they made M16's...."they don't" I tried everything I could to keep this guy from making himself look like an a$$ in front of his son.
The food is the best reason to go. Next reason would be to make fun of some of the freaks that crawl out from under their rock to see the purdy guns! I need to go back next time one's in town, There's a Tikka LSA-55 mag in that pile somewhere!
