The last Great Melbourne Gun Show 2016, 12/31

Post by Wulfmann » Sun Dec 25, 2016 9:13 pm

and the first gun show of 2017

With the election over and gun sales soaring it will be interesting to see not only the attendance but the amount of actual buying

We might be down Saturday morning.

Not expecting much, but there is always the hope of finding something you like.

Surprised with the crowd this morning, with lots of wife's & girlfriends at this show today.
Did not see many buying guns, only lots of looking.
AR prices are up $50 to $75 over the last two shows, and AR Pmags are all over the place.
The cheapest Model 1911 I saw was $485 for a Rock Island Arsenal, that you could have bought for $400 at the last two shows.
Some good deals on ammo; examples 9mm for $200 per 1000, 380 for $15 or less a box of 50.
Reloading powder is down a couple bucks a pound, and saw primers at $28 per 1000.

Bought nothing again today, as milsurp rifles are really getting scarce.

Next show is Feb 4 & 5.
