Went to the gun show

#1 Post by Mark9117 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 12:49 pm

My son's friend had money burning a hole in his pocket and he wanted to buy his first pistol. He had no idea what he wanted and was open to suggestions. Fortunately for him, there was a gun show in town.

He wound up walking away with a very slightly used Taurus PT 740 for $150, 100 rounds of .40 range rounds for $32 and some copper coins (he's a collector).

For a small town this was a crowded but relatively worthwhile show. ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Pix aren't allowed around here. Freedom! I guess.

Puffing up is no substitute for smarts but it's a common home remedy

Absolutely. There were also some good deals on ammunition.

Yep. Pix are definitely verboten in these parts. They even get on the PA system if someone catches wind of it. I guess there's just too many current and former operators manning the jerky and overpriced knife/holster/C&R tables these days. :ohmg:
