Nope. Went to the Pompano Militaria show. A few interesting pieces, but mostly the same old guys clinging on to their collections via high price tags.

Oddly, there was an older gent there, dressed in a period sailor outfit, autographing this photo. I didn't ask if he was an imposter, but I know the sailor in the photo passed in 2014... :-k

The February show is one if the better WPB shows, because there is no January show because of the county fair. This means attendees have $ to spend because there wasn't a show there 3 weeks ago. I'm at a huge ham radio show in Orlando. GARY

Busy place today at the fair grounds, Marine show & flea market, Art show and fair, attended the supposed named Gun show, purchased some 22 stinger, 22 velocitors, 22 copper ammo and a box of .380 interceptors and last but not least, resupply of jerky, still many non firearms vendors selling their wares, guess that's the nature of the beast from now on gotta get used to it ..

The original sailor was Carl Mastronado (sp?) In the iconic photo. I had the pleasure of meeting him about 15 years ago. Nice guy
