It's fun show weekend.

Posting has been interrupted by me hanging out at the fun show. I split a table with a friend, as much for the people-watching as anything else. 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.
Not much of a crowd, and nobody's buying much of anything. You'd think that folks would be in the middle of a frothing election panic right now, seeing as how the gun-buying public is prone to such things, but maybe folks are all panicked out? Alternatively, folks might be too broke to panic.
