Coming up from Macon with some buddies from Wonderful Robins, not looking for anything in particular. Have a long list of "nice to haves". Amazing thing is the food at the Expo center is actually pretty decent.
54R, 8mm, 6.5 and 7.5 ammo is always on the list. A decent Mosin stock would be great. Great place to stock up on brushes and mops.
Going to sell a VZ-24 w/o crest and a nice Marlin 60 w scope.

I'm going. Only taking a few MN with me to sell(Finn 91, Izzy M44, wartime generic 91/30), unless my order comes in. Do have a nice post war 91/30 stock to take.

wgallc, will you be at a table or walking around looking for deals? The 91/30 stock could be right what I'm looking for to replace a badly cracked one.

Both walking & looking, but I am supposed to be manning my tables. They don't have aisles marked, but I'm usually near the front counter, behind admissions.

there is a $1 off coupon on gun-shows.com, vets get $2 off, used to be free to us :(
I know how you feel. I used to go when I was doing Reserve duty at NAS ATL. Three or four of us would go in uniform and they would just wave us in. Got used to just using my Retired ID now. I guess no more. Is this the RK show with the coupons on their website?

Add: I couldn't print the coupon from the gun-shows.com site. So I printed it from the RK site. http://rkshows.com/index.php

wgallc, Finn 91 you say?
Yes, a 1900 Izhevsk receiver, late, nicely marked Finn replacement stock. 1942(or 43) B barrel.

My son talked me out of the 1915 Westinghouse that I found last weekend, otherwise it would be at the show, too.

Also a 1938 Izhevsk that appears unmolested. I love the 'look' of grungy, heavily shellaced Mosins.

The turn out was huge. I was there when the doors opened, but didn't come away with anything special. Paid $20 for a M91 and SMLE front handguard, which made the trip worth it.

You guys have to look a little harder, there were spam cans of 54R for $80.
I bought bandoliers of German 1942 8mm for $17.50 each, on brass stripper clips no less. Plus some Greek 8mm.
Picking thru a crate of Mosins turned up a 1943 in a wartime stock for $99.

The same crate held a 1938 Izhevesk in a heavily shellacked pre-war stock, will know if original once I pull the buttplate. Nice CCCP stamp under the shellac. Original crown, too, no recrown or counterbore.


Oh, you would flip if you saw the spliced stock '32 Izhevsk refurb I flipped this weekend. I should have taken pics, too busy, but it didn't last 3 hours.

That spliced stock was awesome, a really unique Mosin. Someone got a real treasure.
WG, hope you sold off more of your weapons, place sure was packed with customers.
I sold off both the rifles I brought along for close to asking price and then promptly purchased surplus ammo.
Don't think I can be bothered with the Macon show on Sunday, rather go to the range and have some fun.

3 weeks and then the Gwinnett Show, usually a good one, not as good as NAS though.

Oh yeah, there was a 1943 Izhevesk with a serial number of 16, on the receiver anyway. The bolt was a ground off refurb with the same s/n, the butt plate and magazine had line-outs. Interesting but I passed on it. $140.
