You know it just dawned on me.............


The Reason the Gunshow has been post poned is because EVERYONE is SOLD OUT of ammo. Nobody has ammo to bring to these shows. Just about every online Ammo place is sold out of .223,.308 and 7.62x39. Even AmmoMan.com hardly has anything.

I have about 100 rounds in unlabeled white boxes.

It looks like Wolf. I just got 2 hi caps for my Browning BDM which I need to test plus some new mags for the Hi Power I picked up the other day.

I think W&W will be crowded since it`s getting close to hunting season. What time will you be there?

I need to check where that show on the 6th & 7th is. I`m getting annoyed at these cancellations.

Soda, I bought a case of the Greek "Olympic" 9mm at the last gunshow. I fired off a box and it works fine. I actually like it a little better than the Win white box that I usually use for practice.

Oh, and I'll definitely be bringing a rifle. Between Soda, 9mmMike and friends, and me, this meet might turn into a FAL fest.

Why don't we all just get together at my place and everyone bring everything you don't need and we'll have our own gunshow?

David Park- YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Well I had my 10mm at the last meet, but didn't have any ammo for it. It is the 1911 I showed you. If I can find some reasonable ammo for it I will bring it to the next meet.

Looks like I will have to bite the bullet (pun ) and buy from Ammoman. CCI blazer appears to be the cheapest. Anybody shot any lately, Marcus?


This sunday I will be sitting in a hotel conference room ranting about the lack of right to carry here in NY. At least LaPierre and John Lott are supposed to show up.

Ugh it looks like I am out for W&W this weekend.

I will be out there for the 28th though, unless there is 5 ft of snow on the ground.

K80, why not roll your own 10mm??? Wouldnt that be cheaper?

Hmm anyone know a place to get 44mag at a good price?

Well I'm still going up for the day. I'm going to be shooting my Beretta and my Taurus .38 Special. I ORDERED A DILLON 550B today!!!!! Once I get the .223 down I'll get the conversion for .45acp and never have to worry about these Gunshows for ammo. Anyone want to buy a Russian SKS and accessories plus 1000rds of ammo? I might trade it in for another Mini 14.

Roll your Own

Need expended brass first

Guess that rules out Blazer ammo as it is aluminum and not reloadable. Only other alternative is federal with lead bulllets

Well I went up all by myself But I still had fun I shot about 150rds out of My 9mm and 100rds out of my .38 Special. My hands were black from the .38.

I put a Death Notice up at WW for anyone that tries to plan anything on the 28th. We're on for the 28th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess I'll plan on bringing the Hot Chocolate and Coffee It might be cold

So what are you guys going to be for Halloween?

I stopped at the local range to try out

the 2 BDM 15 round mags I got. The wind was going right through me. I wound up losing my voice for awhile.

SodaPop,

Yeah I think it will be COLD on the 28th, but that just makes it more fun! Have to wear a parka or something like. Maybe even pull your van up to the line, and blast the heat

I wouldnt even mind having light snow to shoot sportin clays in! That would be sweeeeeett

Ya Know........

I absolutely love shooting in the snow. Sometimes My imagination runs wild and I pretend I'm a 10yr old kid again fighting Storm Troopers and "Imperial Walkers On The North Ridge" "Imperial Walkers On THe North Ridge".

OOOOOhhhhh!!!! I love snow

I love the fall, cool weather, frost on the ground in the morning, leaves turning. Those old hunting urges start to stir.

Drag out the old duck blind heater and mittens.


cmon' It wont be that cold. Weather will be just right. Range will be empty.

Take two aleve and I'll be good for the day

So what are we going to shoot?

Can't wait for the next installment of the Soda Pop FAL soap opera.

Nah its the Mini 14 Soap Opera this time

I just got back from W & W again for the second time today. I think I dropped my one and only 20rd PMI mag when I loaded up my van. I drove back at 9pm to see if it was in the parking lot. I'll call tomorrow to see if anyone found it and turned it in. I left there at about 2:30 and hardly anyone was there. Had to have been an employee or the one and only guy at the pistol range that picked it up.

Kiss that mag goodbye!

Reminds me of the time I left my choke tube case with 3 Krieghoff screw chokes in it at the range

I hope the creep who kept them has a blockage in his barrel next time he shoots.

SodaPop,

Atleast it was only a mag. Imagine if you somehow left your Mini there

About the worse I have ever done, was to leave some AK mags upstate once ALONG time ago. That is when those mags were only like 2-3bucks each though, and could be had by the case! The only thing I did was buy more at the next show.

YO!!! Listen to this!!!!!!

I talked to one of the people that always has a booth at the Fort Washington Gunshow and she said "THE FBI TOLD THEM" they couldn't have the Gunshow last weekend. Its understandable but unfortunate for us

I'm pretty good friends with one of the guys that is an Ammo Dealer at the Appalachian Gunshows. If you guys need anythign let me know and I can pick it up and bring it to the shoot. I don't know about 10mm though.
