    Syracuse show kind of sucked. Not many dealers, but a lot of flea market tables. It is usually a lot better than that. I hope than no one who may have gone on my recommendation was too dissapointed.

    Hopefully, Rochester will be better.

    Well, it can't be all that good if it's in New York. Nevertheless, enjoy yourself!
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

    One in Port Crane this weekend also.

    Willy I thiught the Syracuse fall show was a good one. You are correct about the junk stuff. Very heavy turn out I thought. I did score a used read brand New RRA A4 18" with Bushnell Red dot for $750. Still had cosmoline on the bolt carrier.

    Well the Poughkeepsie show was better than I expected. It was most flea-market type stuff, but there were a few good tables of decent stuff. I picked up a couple of boxes of Speer Gold Dot 9mm for my wife at $15 each. I couldn't find any reloading materials though unfortunately, which is what I really went for in the first place. It was packed! Snow was coming in the afternoon, and I think everyone was trying to beat it.
