Default Ontario gun show

Looks like the ammo and AR-15 plus the AK variant slump is over. Saw way too many of that stuff.
Was at a table looking at 2 Garand stocks put them down and darn it a guy picked 'em up and bought them. So still looking for a rifle stock for my IHC. But ain't giving up The Boyd's will just have to do but the right one.

Did I see folks walking around drinking beer with so many weapons and ammo around???

i was their at 9 am. I was looking at front sight wings [ rough shape ]. for my 1917 eddystone and the guy wanted 40 bucks for it. If i want something i usually do not worry over a couple of bucks but dam 40 dollars . it was NOT complete just the wing shell. on line i can get the complete front sight i think for around 10 dollars.
ammo bros had 1,000 rounds of WOLF 7.62-39 for $ 209 OTD which is better than on line after shipping and tax. grabbed a large bottle of hoppys # 9 for 16 bucks. i have not found the large bottles on the shelf at local gun stores. I am kind of poor right now so i did not look at guns.

Surprised to see the .223 ammo price drop. I scored myself 500rds of Fed American Eagle .55gr for $149.95 and a few 20rd boxes of Rem 30-06 for $14.95. The .45acp price was still a bit high (better at Walmart) and .22 was hard to find. Some stands did have .22, but they all wanted 50-$60 per 500rds. With the ammo and cleaners I picked up, I walked out pretty happy.

Show SUCKED. Attendance seemed down. Now $14 plus parking to get in the Utah cartels prices and greed keep rising. No CGN booth. For some reason they didn't do pledge of allegiance. Giveaway was a brick of 22. Got a little bit of obscure ammo anf left within 40 mins. Parked far to get free parking.

I usually skip the Ontario show and hit Orange County instead. It's a bigger show and costs less to get in (including parking). I haven't been since summer 2012 but hopefully the old guys still show up with all the C&R guns and parts now that the laws have changed.

One of the main C&R guys there you may still be thinking about got popped for doing illegal transfers and dealing without a license. Come have a $12 cup of beer if you want but you will probably be about as disappointed at Costa Mesa. I didn't see the old lady that sells Betty Boop and I love Lucy crap at Ontario unless I wasn't paying attention.

I like gun shows but i have not been to one in about 3 months. my expectations and cash were both at a all time low. i always like to check out desert fox and his AK & SKS goodies. I was too broke to buy a AKM bayonet i do not have. Only one booth had cleaning patches and he did not have the 2 1/4 round ones i was looking for. Unless i have at least 200 bucks on me the gun show is not much fun.
