Fun Show Time!

Let's sing the Fun Show Song!
Flintlocks and Flop-tops
And Number Three Russians
Black-powder Mausers
From jackbooted Prussians,
Shiny Smith PC's from limited runs
These are a few of my favorite guns.

Socketed bay'nets
On Zulu War rifles,
Engraved, iv'ried Lugers
That make quite an eyefull
Mosin tomato stakes sold by the ton
These are a few of my favorite guns.

Rusty top-breaks!
Smallbore Schuetzens!
And all of Browning's spawn
I just keep on browsing my favorite guns
Until all my money's gone.
I've pretty much shot my gun show bolt for the month, but there's no harm in going to look, is there? The little show at the National Guard armory at Stout Field is one of my favorites. Mostly old guys with collectables and light on new stuff. No Beanie Babies. If you're looking to comparison shop plastic Glock'n'Wesson .40 cals, this isn't the show for you. If you're hoping to stumble across a good deal on a Martini Cadet or a Savage 99, it's more your speed.
