Recommended Posts

So, I went to a gun show today and bought bed sheets. Obviously my life is over.

Normally I would comment, "Pictures, or it didn't happen".

 

But in this case none are needed :(

...... I think I'm more worried about a  guy who would actually expect to sell bed sheets at a gun show.

My friend took his new girlfriend to a gun show. He was going to buy an H&K .45. He bought his girlfriend a really nice set of jewelry that she “really really really wanted”. He didn’t get the H&K. Pansy!

She broke up with him a week later.

He probably got away cheap.

The last gun show I went to I didn’t buy anything that had to do with a gun but a nice canteen and cup dated 1918 followed me home

I'd wear them over my face as I walked out.

There for a while t seemed Gun Shows had become flea markets. Thankfully someone put the skids on some of the silliness. 
 

The people that used to burn me were the morons selling eyeglass cleaner. I literally popped a guy right in the nose army the Orange County Gun Show here in California a few years ago when visiting from Oregon. A guy selling eyeglass cleaner snatched my glasses from Nyla face to show me how his product worked and I hit him...right in front of two Deputies.  I figured I was off to jail but the Deputies asked if I wanted to press assault charges. Apparently the idiot had been told a number of times to not do that. I didn’t press charges as I figured I was the one getting off lucky. 
 

Now gun shows here are like they use to be. Lots of guns and annoying and minimal crapola.

If she really really wanted that set then she should have paid for it herself.

Yes, it is so sadly obvious.  Someone should call in Hospice for poor ol' Mr Raylan.

 

Wait!  Smell his breath!!  He's three-sheets-to-the-wind!!! 

Look at him!  He's sheet-faced!!

When my daughter was younger she'd go to gun shows with me, seems like she was always finding non gun things for me to buy for her I really didn't mind as her things were usually cheap and I enjoyed her company, When she finally decided she wanted  to shoot cowboy she put a few of her finds on ebay and made enough to pay for her guns and leather, Need less to say I was pretty  proud of her and then and there figured out  not to ever horse trade with her.

I took the wife to a gun show once......only once.  Never again.  We do a lot of things together but gun shows is not one of them, anymore, ever.

Women can be funny sometimes..... or atleast to the point us men don't understand.

 

Example:  My wife can walk into a gun store with me and question as to why I would want or buy

a .22 rifle for $200 or a nice pistol for $600-800.

She would say such a purchase is crazy.

 

THEN, we walk into an motorcycle/ATV store and thinks its a good idea if I want to buy a $10,000 

Yamaha Grizzly ATV.

True story.

Ask her to explain cosmetics. I still don’t understand the terms exfoliate and volumize and why the bathroom is filled with dozens of products toward that end. Which is immediately followed by grease and paint, thus repeating the cycle. :D

Last time I took my wife to a gun show I came home with an S&W model 581.  That's ok with me.

Can I go to a gun show with your wife?  Can't wait to see what she gets for me!

It's just like woodworking.  Sanding, caulking, priming, painting.

You bought sheets??

 

Well, that’s probably a tribute to the lackluster, uninteresting collection of firearms being offered at that gun show, and increasingly, others.  I’ve found that the recent gun shows I have gone to aren’t worth the entrance fees, and the sellers behave as if their boring wares are akin to a virgin daughter. 

 

The carnival food, trinkets and odd, out of place stuff for sale ARE the attraction at many or most gun shows nowadays.

Just as Ebay has pretty much killed off antique stores Gunbroker will eventually kill off gun shows, assuming the anti-gunners don't kill them off first. The last few gun shows I've been to I didn't even bother to bring any cash with me, knowing there wouldn't be anything but junk being peddled. I would go there just to kill a Saturday, and left wishing I had my Saturday back.
