I'm debating. Going shooting tomorrow and 3gun in Ponoka Sunday, not sure if I might be facing a job jar/honeydo list on Sat.

You gonna be wearing a tag or manning a booth? (ok, see it now, a sticker on yer back?) lol. I'll shoot you a PM Friday and arrange to buy coffee or some such if I decide to get down there.

That'd be fantastic!

I'm hoping I can also find some WW2 stuff, I'd like some GI helmets for quading... Lol

Would love to come but won't be able to - prior engagements. Have fun anyone who is there! If you see a good deal on a Robinson Arms XCR buy it for me... I will pay you back one day....

WW2 stuff - if there isn't much there, there sure should be at the Edmonton show at the old airport - I think it's 26th & 27th May, and there is usually many tables of war memorabilia and bringbacks etc.

Found Red, it was great to meet you guys!


I bought 2 army helmets for quading, one Vietnam vintage US Army, and the other Current Issue Canadian.. Frick they are sweet. Should make for some interesting looks on the quad trail... Lol


All n' all a decent show, a serious lack of black rifle stuff but with no range in Red Deer it's not surprising... I guess my new range and gun shop will fill the void and get black rifle popular around these parts. It's definitely a gap in the market worth taking advantage of.

I think GOC will have a booth at the Red Deer show next year for sure!
