    Went to the the Arkansas Arms& cartridge collectors gun show at the state fairgrounds in Little Rock AR yesterday with my son and another employee. I had an excellent, satisfying experience by finding a LH Savage bolt gun to do a caliber conversion on. As well as a Colt Detective Special 2" with a bit of pitting (plan to have Metaloy do a hard chrome on it). Also found aused stainless Colt Gold Cup Trophy that I thought was priced well below what I've been seeing similar guns selling for recently. Has a small hickey on rh side where a ambi saftey galled a "idiot mark" looking spot.

    My son found a pump shotgun to get ready for the spring turkey season, and the other guy got a load of accessories for his 10-22 project.

    Seems popular to rag on gunshows on the net, but I'm a devoted attendee!

    I was going to go to that, but I'm still saving money for my vacation. Maybe when the Hot Springs gun show happens in July I can get to that one.

    I like Gun Shows. Try to make most of them at the South FL. Fairgrounds.
    Have bought about six handguns at the show, made good deals on all of them....
    Also purchase primers and powder at the show...:grin:

    I thought about going Saturday but had too much else going on. Any decent 1911 collections there?

    Good buys. The gun shows in the DFW area are generally very good. We have scored a number of very reasonable deals and the prices are generally better than any of the local shops.

    We trudge on.
