    I went today to the show. It wasn't as big as usual and prices seemed on the high side even for a gun show.

    I saw lots of M1 carbines, and one dealer had racks of older ones starting at around $1300 and up! :eek: Iver Johnson I think was most of them. I could be wrong. Lower end ones were Plainfield mfg. etc. The least expensive was $400 and up from there. See pictures. One dealer had hundreds of bayonets different types and I saw a case of what looked like old scopes, possibly military. Some hiPoints were mid hundred, while most were $200 or over for the pistols.
    I also saw one used glock 45 type Mech Tech for $350. $40 for a brick of 22 was the cheapest and lots of reloading supplies everywhere.

    I stopped going to the Tampa show last year, way too busy. I'll hold out for Palmetto in 3 weeks, way smaller crowds and free parking.

    ...according to the website 11/7-8, it seemed like a short time between Palmetto shows to me too.

    Gun People are like preppers in large part. I think there is a feeling that SHTF
    is right around the corner. They are trying to move product to make $$$ for
    their own personal situations. This is just one factor, however. IMO :foilhat:
