    Aaaaannnnndddd...it's time once again for the Hickory, NC gun show, held at the Hickory Metro Convention Center off Exit 125, I-40. This has, historically, been one of the best small town gun shows in the state. Usually a number of private sellers walking around with guns - more so than a lot of shows.

    We'll be there. Try to never miss this one. Who else is going?

    I would love to meet for breakfast, but... a friend is helping me rebuild my deck. It's my watch on deck, so to speak...

    I will let you know. If I can get someone started on some work three minutes up the road I’ll come but the Saturday for the show will most likely be a no go. I have work to finish so I can get out to Kansas next week. I should know this afternoon.

    You're just jealous because that panhandler offered me half of his take after he got a good look at me.

    Rumor has it that @premise sister may be making an appearance. She is shown here at the Concord show last week.

    One of my long lost children, no doubt. Did she deliberate over a pistol for 30 minutes only to ultimately decide on passing it over?

    Did you sneak that photo of her?

    I would love to but my part time guy has never done the task he will be doing tomorrow. And he doesn’t function well after Friday’s festivities with Smokey, smoke.

    Pity

    Anyway, on my way to the back room, I found a couple things I’d been searching for and the prices seemed reasonable. I was completely outta money by the time I got back to see @cubrock. :cool:

    1hr 25mins for me one way. I’m into more modern stuff. 9mm, .45, and AR platforms. Are the prices worth the drive?

    Gosh I’m all mixed up on my days. That’s what happens when you work 7, 12 hour nights in a row. Haha my mistake.
