Default Boise gun show (in Nampa) this weekend

Just a reminder the Boise gun show is this weekend Jan 11/12 2020 at the Nampa Ford Idaho Center. Large show with a lot of vendors. Free parking. 8 bucks to get in. Well worth going. Doors open at 9am.

Last one I went to there were a few gems and I wish I had the cash. Someone had a mint preban Brazilian FAL, a new in box 80's Sig Sauer P226 for around 600.00 and someone else had an estate sale of higher end optics that if he had taken credit I might have maxed out my card.

I have picked up some real gems there and have had to control myself and pass up a bunch too. I go every time. Love it. Hope you can make it.

Wish you all could have seen the Idaho gun shows here back in the early 70s. Before rugs, jerky, and politicians began to show up. Still, I've seen a few good deals at this one.

Wife and I will be going!

Gun shows back in the mid and late 80's in California were pretty freaking awesome as well.

I picked up a hand full of Croatian steel AK mags sealed in bags. I really like those mags, they fit and run flawlessly in all my AKís, have lrbho followers, and you could probably drive a nail with them. They were like 10 bucks a piece. I saw a minty baby Browning .25acp thatís been on my list for some time but didnít pull the trigger on it.

A very good show with reasonable prices and good inventory.

I did not buy anything, but my wife got a quilt, a skunk pelt, and some fudge .
