MBtGE went to the Chantilly VA Fun Show. Since I was feeling poorly he asked if he should be on the lookout for anything for me.
Naw. Not really.
Wait. If you see a good deal on M1 Carbines...
Cheapest vintage one he saw was $1800. The brand new reproductions were less than a grand, but so what?
If that's where they are setting... Two LARGE... I'm not gonna be owning one. I am not buying a shooter M1 that costs more than my M1A. Crap.
If you could see me now you would see my sad face.
(I know, I know, I can probably do a third of that price, but still. I kick myself for not getting into the hobby sooner. Then again, I wasn't as wealthy 10+ years ago, either.)
In other gun show news... .40 was available in bulk from major manufacturers, around a quarter ($.25) a round. I'm happy to see that. I didn't expect $150 for 1000 nowadays, but was kinda expecting they'd try for $330 per.
