Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I have never been to that show.. So I will ask your insights. Has it started to lose alot of its older surplus gun look so far??

Our largest, at the Fond du Lac, Wi fair grounds that was on 15 April.
added here are some old comments from past shows:

This is an odd show because so many different people set up each time. One show can be crazy surplus heavy the next all hunting guns or pistols. About 60% private sales the rest dealers , but all check the DL and now a days request that you provide your DL number and or sign a statement that you can buy a gun and are not a felon or have a domestic dispute. All incoming guns checked and banded. I always find great stuff, depending on the show. Unfortunately, all the old links about this show with the many deals over the past 15 years are lost due to the forum crash. It is odd because there can be deals from people selling off the dead collectors collection to dealers that have crazy prices. There are a few neat display tables- but few. Not much junk. Not much really rare top end stuff in the $2000-5000 range. Not so much original Revolution or Civil War stuff. Lots of cowboy pistols WW I , WWII, Span Am and hunting stuff. Less black rifle stuff, it does not sell at top prices.
Little to no fully automatic stuff- if its there it is a display not for sale thing. I like the small junk- arrowheads,toy lead soldiers, military books, old ammo, web gear, helmets, bayonets and maybe a way under priced surplus rifle. I am getting too old to be buying stuff, and prices are just nuts. Some people only sell to non dealers and will not sell to dealers as per the dead collectors wishes. It is a wonderful show- always odd stuff & different people that may things interesting. Always surplus , but prices differ greatly. Most seem to be on the high end from dealers.

Of late the last show was short on any K98s.
