No guns this time. Missed a threaded makarov. Doh.
The astra 400 or 600 is weighing on my mind. Steyr hahn too. Those are less common lately though.

There's always deals. There's always the 600 dollar plain Jane 91/30 dumbass too.

If you go regularly (once a month, looking at thousands of guns, oh no, not that) you get to know a lot of the regulars, and can get even better deals.



This times 100000.

Most of the time I just go there for the social aspect of it, kinda like Car Shows.

And so the story goes, garage sale shoppers and some "serious people" that know what they are looking for and can negotiate. A lot of vendors are overpriced and haul their stuff from show to show and whine and complain about it.....then there are the few of us that are fair and are willing to pass a deal along. Capitalism at its finest, just open up and start a conversation and you would be surprised at the results, it's part of the process. We are all just trying to make things happen & move product, when I put things on the table it's not a display or exhibit I want to move the stuff, negotiate, nothing is set in stone. If there is no price on what you are looking at, ask! Most people like myself aren't trying to gouge people, just bring things to light and get it in more appreciative hands for the collectors and enthusiasts, I'm not a retailer and don't deal with "nib" products, just trying to have some fun and enjoy the historical aspect and conversation.....just have fun and don't be so serious. As long as everyone walks away happy, mission accomplished. See you in Spokane, I want to see something different! Out

Spot on assessment...
I have people make offers all of the time. I am not insulted or "put off" by it.
It is simply part of the process.
People need to shop around before they make their purchases.
I had a gentleman walk by who was carrying a new S&W M&P Sport II AR that he just purchased.
He slowly walked by my tables and about lost it when he saw my exact same model priced at $560 when he just, 20 minutes earlier, paid $625.

Whining is also part of the "Gunshow" culture.... :bigsmile:
