Our local show is this weekend (we only get two big shows a year). I went Friday afternoon right at opening hoping to find a deal. As I was talking with a lady I had just purchased some books from I noticed the barrel of a M91 sticking out from the end of a rack an isle over. So after we got done chatting I headed right over with great anticipation, hoping to score a nice M91 or possibly a dragoon. As I came up to the rifle I noticed something odd; holy smoke this guy had a m/39 SOV (may have been a repro but the scope/mount was legit), regular M39, M28, M28-30, stepped barrel M24, M91, SVT-40, Soumi, a Tokerev, ect ect. My heart started to pound as you never see any Finns at our local gunshow other than the odd overpriced M39. I have only found one SA marked 91/30 in several years at this show. I couldn't beleive it, the mother load of Finns. Now my heart sank as I realized the fine gentlemen behind the table had decided to come and set up a display of Finnish weapons and gear. Nothing was for sale.Oh well I got to meet a fellow Finn collector, had a great conversation and it was nice to see his display after year after year of 1911 and 03A3 displays. I hope he wins for best display.Richard if you happen to read this I enjoyed your display and the good conversation.
