Bobbi has a detailed report over at her place of our excellent adventures yesterday, complete with many a photo, and I will suggest you go there and look at them.
Myself, I picked up a few loose rounds of .41 Swiss rimfire, because after plunking down money on the full box at the last show... I find myself reluctant to break up a full box of antique cartridges, yet I still want to shoot the Vetterli. I wonder if I can persuade the guys at Eagle Creek to let me shoot it there? I mean, I know Eagle Creek is pistols and shotguns only, but 10.4x38R has a lot less steam than any shotgun slug. Heck, with a 330gr bullet at ~1400fps, it's out-powered by a fair number of big handgun rounds these days.
I almost got away without purchasing any firearms, but at the last minute succumbed to an extremely reasonably priced S&W .32 Safety Hammerless 2nd Model, circa 1902 or '03, a blued 3 1/2" gun in nicer shape than the somewhat ratty nickel 3" 1st Model I already owned.
In the parking lot? Vespa!
