    The Hickory Gun Show is this weekend (6/15-6/16). This has historically been one of the best "small town" gun shows in the state. It is run by C&E Gun Shows and is held at the Hickory Metro Convention Center off Exit 125, I-40.

    We will be there in the back room. Who else is going?

    The .410s, I'm not sure. The lever action rifles are usually carried by the big, new gun dealers like Village Pawn. It is hard to miss their booth - they take up half an aisle.

    Hickory Gun & Pawn is just a couple miles from the show venue and he carries Henry products. You might give him a call and see if he has them if you are already going to be in Hickory for the show.

    Just existed the building. Nice crowd of mouth breathers. Some nice stuff as I am returning later after lunch and visiting a customer.

    Didn’t see thread earlier and went to Ihop. @LeeMajors the phone number you gave me in a conversion is wrong. Can you pm the mumber.

    I will go back tomorrow for something I want. Guy stamping hands today turned me into a blue smurf. Where do they get these old geezers with bad attitudes to work the door? Southern hospitality- hahaha. Bullshit.

    Nearly 200 miles roundtrip for me. With gas and the entry ticket, I figure this one “bargain” box (all he had) cost me about $1.25 per round. :eek:

    @Jeppo doesn’t play around. Those North Carolina Jeppo Museum pieces are nice. Is there a home big enough for that many Smith and Wesson handguns?

    I’m going back this morning for an hour.

    Really enjoyed spending time with you and your family this weekend. Please thank your wife again for all her help watching that end table for me. She was a lifesaver! My daughter REALLY likes her, too. :)
