We are trying.
I have to say, I went to a gun show this morning in Toledo, Ohio at the Lucas County Recreation Center. Got there at 8 am. Doors opened at 8:30 am. At 8, there was a line to get in about 300 feet long. Was one of those shows/swap meets where you could walk in and sell or buy from a vendor dealer.
I took one of my AK's and 2-30 round mags. I realize that an AK isn't what we consider a sporting rifle but I bought a few, sdme years back, figuring that they might be worth more. They are. I sold it in the parking lot, waiting in line for 1700 bucks, cash. No case the rifle and 2 mags. 17 one hundred dollar bills. I realized 5 times what I originally paid and I didn't ask for that much though I knew they were high, he offered and I accepted.
Inside, there were quite a few AK, all higher asking than mine and I didn't see one as nice. Mine are pristine, with J-Tack muzzle brakes and bolt buffers plus they have the bayonettes and the magazine pouches.
I saw numerous AR's of all flavors, all exceeding $2000.00. Rock Rivers, DPMS and a bunch more. Lots of ammunition (nothing I need or want), a bunch of older, well used bolt guns of no consequence and many revolvers and semi-auto pistols. Almost bought another 27 Smith 44 long barrel but the vendor and I couldn't reach an understanding on price. Of course the usually 'military tactial crap that comes to any gun show.....
Interestingly I saw no reloading tools or dies at all, which is fine actually. The 'new' buyers can go get generic loads and leave the components for us....
The place was packed but no what I consider long range sport hunters. Mostly people looking for rifles and guns on Feinstein's most wanted list.
There was one vendor with a 50 custom built by some company in Minnesota. It looked like a tank and was. I asked him the weight. he told me 26 pounds unloaded. I don't think so.... He probably sold it. People were laying down cash and buying guns and stuff. Amazing.
