Was in the area so my father and I went.
Was better then the usual shows but not great.
Argie FMAP preban for $1900 (wood furniture?)
Para FAL stock/BC and top cover $600
couple of century jobs for $700
HK91 (mad in germany preban) for $2600
Russian capture K98k $500..didnt see any 'special' markings.
Colt 1911A1 1943 $1200
(makes me wonder what my fathers 1918 dated is worth)
Got some 7.62x54R made in Russia for $75/thousand
And I was hoping to NOT spend any money (as I am almost broke)
But on the third walk through the show I noticed an FN-49.
It was a century import Egyptian in very good condition. Wood was excellent.
Bore was a tad dark but decent rifling. Price was $375
I ended up talking him down to $350 and got the dang thing with my C&R.
I havent paid attention to the prices on these things but I'm thinking I did ok.
The speculative line of demarcation, where obedience ought to end and
resistance must begin, is faint, obscure, and not easily definable.
