Default LODI FUN

Hi Guys,

The Lodi show was pretty good. Quite a few and varied C&Rs, prices up and down. The private folks were ready to haggle, but not on the 2 things I was liking, a parts made Johnson, and an SVT. I haven't seen a Johnson of any type person in decades. I scored on some Privi .303, & .357 ammo, and a NIB Interarms Rossi .357. Made some new contacts. Good enough to go both days. PAX

I was only interested in military C&R bolt action rifles and only saw a Vz24 and a few Arisakas. This show was kinda disappointing, at least the one at the fairgrounds usually has a few more C&R vendors.

I saw the Johnson, desirable first series serial number, but it had been re-parked too. That guy had some rough looking stuff on the back side of that rack. VZ was ok, I only saw one Arisaka and it had been sporterized. The show was smaller than I expected, prices were all over the place. Almost popped for a Browning .22 semi....decided to save my funds for the next Reno show.
Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

VZ-24's and Arisakas are fairly abundant and affordable C&R's. I wouldn't spend too much time looking for either.
