    Like I tell the LGS owner when he asks what my next gun will be, I don't have any idea and it will be a total surprise.

    Always on the lookout for a good deal on a nice old Colt or S&W DA revolver.
    A Colt LW Commander is on the want-list.
    Would love to find a deal on a .44 Special GP100 OR the .45 LC/ACP Red Hawk.
    Hope to bring home a Ruger 10/22 Takedown model one of these days.

    I went to one last weekend that was my first in decades. I don't think I will repeat the experience. You can't carry your EDC in loaded, it has to be zip tied, so essentially it's a gun free zone, pretty ironic. It also means people are loading and unloading guns in the parking lot, which I don't think is a good idea. There was as much junk there for sale as there were guns, including Nazi memorabilia, which I think is in bad taste. The prices were not that great. And there were a lot of yahoos there that represented all the stereotypes anti-gunners have of gun owners. I outlined some of that in an earlier thread, linked below. I just didn't enjoy the experience, so I won't repeat it. Just MHO, sorry if it offends anyone.

    One of those old rolling block .22 rifles. Maybe.

    I'm at the gun show as we speak. Of course I'm doing security overnight.

    Most exhibitors' tables are still covered, however I've seen a few things that have caught my eye. Didn't know I'd contemplate a 98 Mauser custom, scoped with some throw-away brand, but rebarreled to .243 and quite nicely done with a good 24-inch barrel length. Could be a good shooter in a caliber I don't currently have or could be rebarreled and restocked to make a nice custom in another chambering. Priced at $325 but perhaps the exhibitor would come off that to make a nice "deal" out of it.

    My gun show promoter bud has a yet unpriced Winchester Model 67 .22 rifle. A pre-war gun, it's seen better days, but is sound. Don't need another Winchester Model 67. This one is the "youth" model with the shorter barrel. It may need a home at the granddaughters' house. They're getting old enough for some rifle instruction.

    It is certain that there is more interesting stuff out there that is currently under wraps. We'll "see it all up" in the morning before I go home to take a nap.

    OldVet; there are a couple of the little early 20th century Remington boys' model rolling block rifles here in uncharacteristically fine condition. Most of those little rifles were beat to a pulp and look so ratty. Problem is they want $595 for the Remington No. 2 and $695 for the Remington No. 6!

    Beside which, you'd get a crick in your neck trying to contrive shooting the diminutive and short-stocked little things.

    They're always cute to see though.

    Our local show is coming up in a couple weeks where I will be working security.
    Over the years I have seen some really nice stuff and complete junk, great prices and some that thought they were dealing in gold, morons, newbies, old hands, and a couple true hero's.

    Gun shows are not for everyone. I don't go to many, but do have 3 besides the one I work for that I enjoy. I go to visit with like minded people as much or more than the show itself.

    I would kinda like to find a nice .45 Colt (long Colt). One of the calibers I haven't latched onto yet. Maybe a nice 6 inch barrel S&W.

    I pulled security at our annual coin show last weekend; while some of the vendors set up early I had the chance to pick some good deals before the show opened to the general public.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    I'm stuck here all night for two nights on a tablet that renders my ability to "like" posts inoperable. What's the deal with that?

    Anyway, my promoter friend has presented me with a poser.

    He took in a 1911-gun at their Midland, Texas show and wants me to figure it out and I need the Defensive Carry Forum 1911 Brain Trust to assist.

    This is someone's custom 1911 of days of yore. Just a garden variety mixmaster mongrel consisting of a World War I era Colt military contract slide on a 1911A1 frame, apparently scrubbed and re-serial numbered in an odd large-ish script font, the slide inletted by a drunk or a kindergartener for installation of a Millet adjustable rear sight, with a big rectangular "stick-y up-py" front sight, all poorly and excessively polished and blued with matted slide top. Has a flat main spring housing with an aftermarket long aluminum trigger. Trigger's been worked and is very light and crisp. Has pre-war wide spur hammer, probably commercial one. Barrel is an unmarked and unremarkable blued military "replacement grade" component, almost looking washed out in front of the chamber from shooting use.

    Now here's where it gets weird. There's a screw in the left side of the slide. The typical WWI Colt Model 1911 roll marks are present and positioned normally if washed out from heavy-handed polishing. The poor "Prancing Pony" is nowhere to be seen. The rear portion of the roll mark has the usual wording: COLTS PT. F.A. MFG CO over HARTFORD CT USA. The screw is installed to obliterate the F.A. and the M of the MFG to describe the location.

    Promoter friend wonders if it is some scheme to tighten the slide, but it contributes nothing. The hole was buffed and egged so the screw has been in and out during the polish job and obviously predates the refinish.

    I will photograph this thing, but can't post them here until I get home to my desk top computer.
