  • West Texas Gun Show report

    This morning after swilling a pot of hardcore, old school perked coffee, West Texas and myself hit the Odessa gun show. All and all, it was a mixed show. Firearms prices were amazingly out of this world. Ammo prices made me mad!! However I did come up with a few good gems.

    I bought 40 rounds of Winchester military 308 for $20.00. $10.00 a 20. High, but cheaper then the $25.00 a 20 everywhere else.




    The next little jewel, and I thank West Texas for finding this, is aLarge ALICE pack with frame. It is labeled as used, but I think it is new. Price? You will call me a liar, but it was $20.00. All straps and buckles are there and new. It is ready to use!! Heck yeah! WT bought one also.




    The final find is a great NEW colapsable 2 quart water canteen with cover. Itis fantastic!! Price? $5.00. Heck yeah!!




    I also passed out quite a few of my little cards advertising the site, bought 20 rounds of 762 x 54R for $8.00 (disgustingly overpriced) and 50 rounds of Colibri .22 super silent.

    All and all, the pack alone was worth the $5.00 entrance fee. WT and I also slummed around town a bit, and I owe him a favor by pointing out the pound of black powder I was looking to buy, would level my garage if I touched it off. I, regretably, left it sitting on the table.

        Ah. I did NOT buy the gunpowder, thus not blowing myself up, so I get to impart my words of wisdom to you in the future. Great gift idea huh?

            Well, the place was packed. I think we left around 11:30 when it got soo packed it was hard to walk around. Most dealers were complaining, but they always do.

              If you decide to sell that Alice pack please sell it to me. I need a winter pack in the worst way!

                I will run back there tomorrow and see if I can find you another one. West Texas has one too. I do not think he wants to part with it either though.

                  Hell no! That sumb_tch is a biggun...it's staying..I hope that guy is at the Midland show in a coupla weeks!

                  Firearms prices were ridiculous, ammo prices too...but hanging out with Rusty was alot of fun....

                  I picked up a pack like Rusty's has in the picture above, except mine has a Name on it, some Monopoly houses and a bent metal tent stake in it. :)
                  Oh, I picked up some strippers for my SKS and a couple of P-38's.

                    I went through all the pockets on mine, but did not come up with anything. I think the guy or gal that had mine was a cook or flushed out of boot. Very little wear. I am going back today after I attend the place of worship of my choice for a little bit and will eye that black powder again.

                      Don't blow up the garage, or SWMBO will be quite cross with you.:(

                              Having a "guy" day was worth it, those packs were worth the $5 entry fee.
