Default gun show tomorrow

well I'm visiting my daughter and son-in-law this week in Kissimmee, FL (Acutally more of a working vacation - Hanging lights and tiling the family room.) But tomorrow there is a gun show at the Central FL fairgrounds in Orlando and I am heading there. I wonder if I will come home with something.
I'm always looking for muzzys with nice wood. But I also have a hankering for an old Winchester 1866 or a Marlin 1895 Cowboy. Either in .45-70. Wish me luck.

Good luck bronko. Hope you find a real deal. The last gun show I went to was so disappointing (high prices, no frontstuffers, no reloading components, tons of military stuff & black rifles) that I vowed to quit going to them.

I spent a few hours last weekend searching through our local gun show hoping to handle a few MLs. I didn't find a single inline in the building. Guess they just aren't that popular here or maybe just out of season.

My search continues.

Gun shows have turned into outlets for local and semi local gun shops. They are mostly for the bang bang bang bang guys stocking up before....... Ive seen a few inlines but mostly highend traditionals. Although i did get a complete NIB MK85 Predator for well under $200 a little while ago at a show.

well gun show was a flop for me. I didn't find anything I was interested in. there was a lot of semiauto pistols and AR style rifles. Not much in the way of hunting guns.
