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.

Louisville wasn't a total bust

#1 Post by Enfield Shooter » Mon Jun 12, 2017 9:06 pm

While I have expressed extreme disappoint on the latest Louisville gun show, it wasn't a total bust. I was able to pick up 200 cast bullets for my .43 Spanish rolling block. I know I could have cast them myself for less but being 3 of the laziest people I know, this was clearly the best option for me. I paid $60.00 use for the lot. Now I have an order in with Larry Potterfield at Midway for an expander die. Should have bought this when I ordered the die set for the rifle. I'm thinking I'll be at the range early next week.

Went to Louisville also, Will not complain, but the Summer show there is always light... This one was a little lighter.

May be skipping the summer shows from now on.. But bets the heck out of setting at home.. :)

Indy1919a4, I usually go to the winter show myself. They moved it from December to January this time around. It conflicted with my annual trip to visit friends in Augusta GA so I passed. I went to an OGCA show as a guest one time. I will have to join this group as the trip is a lot closer, the kinds of guns and stuff I look for were there in abundance.

Many thanks for bringing the OGCS up.. Prey tell, when did you do last and how would you compare it to Louisville??? I have never been there

Also have you ever done the Wanenmakers show in Tulsa???

OOH, Wanenmakers. I've been told about it and have had to stop & wipe the drool off my face. I haven't been there but would really like to. I,d have to save my pennies for quite a while. The OCGA show I went to was quite good. There were more than a few vendors with the kinds of guns that I like. There was also a good number of military that wasn't nazi. Smaller than Louisville but has more of what Surplus Rifle Forum members would be interested in. No need to walk through a field of tupperware to find our kind of rifle.
