Okay, it was a small local show more geared to antiques and muzzle stuffers.....
120-some tables, and I walked it in less than an hour. Nothing struck my fancy, especially given my predilection to ignore tables full of un-priced merchandise. I can't afford 'priceless'.
Of the items I might have looked at, prices were still tagged at 'crazy times' levels. $200 Mosins and $400 Turk Mausers. Single barrel shotguns at $200 and Krag/Springfield/Garands all over $1200 no matter the condition.
I carried in a really nice 1916 Spanish Mauser as trade bait, and it got a fair number of stares. Not seeing anything there I wanted, it never came into play (Tomorrow I'll shoot it a bit, just to apologize to it...).
Sadly, there are no other Funshows near here till the end of the month. Sigh....
No matter. I should be selling, not buying.
