    I'll be headed down with my son and my dad here in a couple hours.

    Not standing in line for door open and not helping or working a booth this year, just relaxing walking around looking for stuff I don't need, but I want

    Some observations so far: if you are looking for a military spec Lee Enfield then this is the place. Some people have predatory pricing but most have started to have their prices adjsut for the fact that there are about 10 guys desporterzing them. What would of been $900 rifles a few months ago are dropping to an average of $800 with some prices as low as $595.

    No tracer ammo.... I have been asked to look for that, and I could not find any.

    Some really great deals and some overpricing; oddly enough this is not an issue of greedy guys. Some vendors have things priced too high and things priced really low next to it. Know your firearms values because lots of guys do not.

    There is a plethora of ammo including a lot of rare stuff.

    Things that I found personality interesting was a vendor with a large stash of antique pistols for sale.

    Finally we are having a sale on the br99 series of magazine fed semi auto shotguns in digital tan. We have the price slashed to $750. Bring cash to avoid paying the GST!

    Some guy was selling surplus Spectra Canadian Army Helmets for $160. I was seriously thinking about picking one up.

    911 Supply was also selling a floor model IIIA FAST helmet for $300 I was really contemplating picking up too (but it was too small).

    I'm a bit concerned about the "de-sportered" Lee Enfields. I know some guys do it right, to armourer's specifications, but some just lump the wood on anyhow.
    The latter are a waste of time, money and materials. Only one right way to do it, but an awful lot of wrong ways.

    I too came out empty -handed. Was looking for a Finnish M 28, or 28-30 Mosin Nagant. Saw 2 M '39's for $950. (About average up here) and an interesting old (1917) Finned M 91, but the bore looked very tired. (At $700)
    L-E No 4 Mk 1 T in case W. scope, for $11,000 but I didn't buy it. :-) Some nice stuff, but you more or less have to run to get around a couple of times!
