I usually go in Friday if I can get away, but I may shoot for Saturday this year if you will be there then.

APEX Gun Parts will be at drive in space #44, same as before.
Thursday is the closest thing to "vendor day".
Friday and Saturday the show goes to 9PM with "night shooting" on both days.
Sunday is for badged shooters and vendors only, opening at 7AM (for pack up) and line going hot at 9AM.

That's the plan. Though we will be off on the side barn, not the main barn. Look for the TOOLMAN sign.

I'm always there long before APEX so I can wait and wait till they get there and go through their stuff as they unpack. Oddly, Richard isn't very chatty at that time.

Why did they move you to the side barn at this show ?

We needed more tables and they werenít available in the main barn. We have loads of FAL, Browning, Bren, and MG34/42 stuff. Plus The FN FAL Primer available. It was getting too crowded where we were- good selling but our tables were always swamped.

Do you know who used to be in the spot you are being moved to?
I heard there was an opening, but not who isn't going to show up now.
We tried to get 2 adjoining drive in spaces, like last time, but it could not be done.
That one spot REALLY limits what we can bring.

During set-up I am very focused on getting everything out and displayed properly. I tend to not be very social when I have a task to get done, and its also the time when you "discover" what you didn't bring or have other problems. All of which I am responsible for. So, I am usually not in the best mood during that set up time.

Richard

Understandable Richard, it was a friendly jibe. We can never just set up, we are besieged from the moment we pull up.

In reality KCR is the place to buy, not sell. I’d do better bringing nothing and just buying. But having a table is the way to catch up with other enthusiasts, and it’s great to see the joy on a face when some nifty item travels from my collection to their hand.

Then there was the young guy who’d purchased a ratty FAL kit with incorrect and missing parts. He was sent to see me. I did what I could and then I and a couple other FILES members walked him to Sarco and Apex and to Mark and set him up with what he needed at rock bottom prices. It really touched my heart to see how the community jumped in to help this guy.

Just yesterday I reached out to a guy I know from KCR who it was rumored had an unobtainium part I need. He said he had one and would bring it to KCR and GIVE it to me. Wow.

I usually try to have some small trinkets I can sell cheap or give to kids. Toolman is the pusher, he gives kids all sorts of stuff. It’s a great meeting of wonderful people. It’s my safe place, albeit loud.

I'll be at table 14, in the side barn, directly across the parking lot from Dolf's table. We should have a big TOOLMAN banner hanging outside.

Love to meet and re-greet other FAL FILES members!

I will be in the area with a few friends. We rented a cabin and will hit the mountain bike trails in the area during the week, and then swing through Knob Creek before heading back home. I look forward for to meeting some Files members face to face for the first time, and hopefully catch up with a friend or two from down south.
