    We are supposed to have a table there but I have made a command decision not to go today due to the weather.

    I may show up tomorrow for the day if the roads are cleared enough for safe travel.

    Lots of empty tables and a light crowd. I took about 50 pictures of a treaty rifle, bought 25 pounds of RE17 and went home.

    It's snowing harder now. Zeus likes it.

    I may go back tomorrow too. I want to get a second look at a shotgun that I should have bought today.

    I also want to look for a loophole. No one had any today.

    decision made - staying home. Kids are sick, wife's away, heat is on the blink, truck's buried in snow, lots of paperwork to do.

    I'll be a good vendor though and pay my table fee. First gun show I've missed in a long, long time.

    Skid driving me riding shotgun, we led an out of towner to the show from Willis Rd to the Racetrack through and around beautiful church hill. It was scenic. :P

    Saw Kennys and his whole family there, talked with "Little Joe" and ignored Dark Sun.

    Lusted for a gorgeous S & W mod.58 .41 mag - it was pristine!

    I went back and picked up the ML double barrel. There were less people than yesterday and everyone was willing to deal just for gas money. Looks like the show was a bust for all the vendors. The how promoter wasn't happy either. She said that made three weekend shows that Mother Nature had ruined.

    Proshooter....should have gone. The Roads are clear

    My road looked like a war zone. Took me about 2 hoursto dig my car out. Combine that with 2 sickkids and the house heat not working, I had no choice but to skip the show.

    Toured around the show Sunday afternoon for about 2 hours. Lots of open tables and very light crowd. Bought a few holsters and accessories which is what we were after anyway. Roads had been well cleared.

    I wanted to go but couldn't. Had to work. Hopefully I'll have my tax refund by the time the Doswell show comes up.

    My wife and I decided to go on Sunday. Really not crowded, and many empty tables. Picked upa couple hundred rounds of .22 CCI MiniMags and a chinese boonie hat for my wife for gardening. Saw a ex-sniper Mosin Nagant 91/30 at Liberty Arms but SWMBO nixed that. Oh well, next time
