That ‘last weekend’ being 07-08 October, A. D. 2017.
No one was injured due to gunfire, with intent or without. (We do a pretty good job of keeping saboteurs out.) There was a dispute between a vendor and a customer; it was resolved without bloodshed or even fisticuffs. Not every was happy about it, but life is like that.
I did not find any illegal (fully automatic, short barreled arms, suppressed arms or suppressors, all without proper documents or licenses) weapons for sale.
I didn’t see any ‘bump fire’ type stocks for sale. I wasn’t looking, actually. They don’t work worth a hoot on bolt action rifles.
I heard no discussions planning illegal activities.
There were no demonstrations for the anti-freedom faction. Probably not enough press coverage. (I didn’t ‘miss’ it.)
Didn’t find any super-bargains on anything. One of my friends did find and purchase a Mannlicher-Schonauer (bolt action) rifle in 8x60mm. He let me hold it. It was sensuous in the same manner as shifting gears on a well made sports car or sleeping on silken sheets. It was less than $600.00 Yankee dollars, rather a bargain. (Presuming one appreciates that sort of thing.) Then he and I discussed making reloadable cases for it.
Saw a bunch of old friends. One of whom was not only still moving, he is getting better. He had been ill with ‘something’ for far too long and the doctors finally figured out the problem. It can be fixed with minor therapy and diet. Nothing requiring him to be disassembled and reassembled. (Thank you, Lord!)
I had dinner and pleasant fellowship and conversation – not all about guns and very little about politics – with some friends.
I found another history book on the First World War for $25.00.
Downside: I worked ‘security’ on the midnight to morning watch. Not a lot of sleep and I was really dragging when the show was over. I’m nearly back to normal today (end of Monday following).
I LEARNED SOMETHING from each of several people.
From my point of view, I had a great time.
