    Default Gunshow report Eastern Pa

    Hi all
    I am up north for the holidays to be with family, instead of where it is warm, so I decided to go to a 1000 table show in eastern Pa, friday, saturday, sunday show, I decided to go friday night, the crowds were not bad, prices where high, but they had everything.
    I managed to buy 22lr mini mags for $15 last year they were $7, in florida now they are hard to find or they are $25 or more. Powder and primers were everywhere, primers averaged $35 for a large box of 1K, not a bargin but available, powder was everywhere, some dealers had really high prices others as low as $25 a lb thats $6 more than last years not bad.
    AMMO stacked to the roof, but I did not check prices sorry. they had plenty of 22lr, prices were slightly high, but heck it was there

    lots of junk too food products, non real guns throwing knives etc, but they had three different companies selling concealment furniture ( gun storage furniture) interesting but now all the thugs in the show know what to look for, better off with a liberty safe ( shameless plug)

    I'm guessing you were at the show near Philadephia? Some of those vendors are always over priced.

    There's one in York too this week end, but it most likely won't be as good since both shows are going on the same weekend, some vendors only go where they can make more money.

    It's at the Philadelphia convention center at Oaks Pa. I may have to check it out, as it's only about a 1/2 hour away from me.

    yes its the oaks and yes york is on, but most of the known dealers will be at the oaks. I asked a few guys I knew when I was in the forks of the delaware collectors club. why Oaks over York MONEY!!!! was the reply. as far as price 7 months ago folks would have paid double for some of the ammo I saw yesterday and that may happen again, our enemies have not given up!!!!!!

    also the Oaks has a Florida FFL/Dealer very convienent for me

    yes I did!!! as some know I am a known commentator on a few Walther and east german sites, I picked up a WW2 P-38 police holster soft shell, while not rare they are getting scarce and the price was right, and I got a great deal on some P-38 wartime mags, seems everybody selling there dads P-38 is now removing the mags, cause are spendy. so I have plenty of spare mags.

    I bought more 3031 and bullseye can't have enough of those
    I got the 3031 for $26 apound thats $7 buck more than last year not bad consisdering it was selling for over $50 6 months ago

    I passed on a mosin nagant 91 that was east german proofed and the florida dealer told me to buy what i want at the show, he would the tranfer right there but its christmas??

    Farm an Fleet? We have those here. I'll go after the storm is over and see what I can find.
    I'm getting ready for what they say could be 5 to 9 inches of snow. I hate fucking snow.

    the farm an fleet guy seems to like to stash the 22 lr under his work station I think hes saving it for friends LOL the only ammo I have found was not on the shelf but near a area were they sort the stuff out . even though they have a four box limit the guy would only let me have one box the first time .

    the last time he wasn't around an I jsut picked up four bokes out of a case an went to check out with no issue .
