The Puyallup October show is billed as the biggest in Washington State. And it is big. I haven't been to a lot of other state's shows other than Texas, but I'll say this triples the size of the average Texas Saxon gun show.

For 9x18 it was pretty dismal, and I live in the heart of Makarov country. There was an IJ-70 for $350 and a great looking PA-63 for $200. I didn't see any other 9x18s.

For ammo: only one vendor was selling current rounds. Realize there were ammunition tables galore. This one seller had Silver Bear HP and Wolf 100-grain for $10/box. And the steel-cased 24-round box Sellier & Bellot for $4.50.

My bud NWPete came away with a great Vaquero in .45 Colt with a fitted .45 acp cylinder, but afterwards he barked at me because I voiced that it was such a great pistol and I blew his negotiations. I have to learn gun show negotiations a bit better.

Sorry ST: too many folks around the Mosins and Enfields. I can't tell them apart much less find the good deals.

Hello Spike:

The Puyallup show is always the bigger of the two and is at least twice the size of the Monroe show. Monroe isn't quite as crowded most times. Man there were a lot of people in Puyallup.

Where's the new range?

I think people are holding onto their Maks. I haven't seen a Bulgarian or an EG at a show for some time.
