    That would have been a fun road trip JB. My church is having a simal cast with Phill Robertson from Duck Dynasty as a guest speaker Saturday morning. Maybe next year. It would be fun to get a group of us together. Another good place to meet could be the Sioux falls gun show.

    Have attended the Wilmar show a time or two while passing by on my way to somewhere else. Has always reminded me of gun shows of years gone by...lots of local guys with tables for themselves, a good variety of 'working' guns, and an all-around 'small town' atmosphere. Definitely recommend it to anyone who might be able to get there.

    I went this morning. I was surprised how big it was, lots of cool stuff to see. I'll be back next year. Unfortunately didn't walk out with anything new. There is a table with a ton of molds. I didn't look too close at them, as I really, really don't need more.

    That was me. Those are the moulds I had on swap & sell some time ago.

    MSM!!!!! That is Blasphemy.... you always need another Mould...

    Dpmsman??? Did you sell them as a lot at the meet? Or just one’s and two’s??? I sure wish I could have talked my buddies to go in together.. it would have been a huge score!!!!

    I just sold them individually. There's not a lot of interest in round ball moulds around here or in casting stuff in general. I think I sold five. Markopolo I appreciate the try! I hope the one you bought is working out well for you!

    Dpmsman,

    It appears you may want to put a sign saying you are a CB.GL forum member, on your table. It seems a pity you folks did not get a chance to meet each other face to face & have a chat.

    I think that would have been pretty cool to read/hear about... to me anyway.

    Well, it is something to consider anyway.

    I didn't even realize there were as many Minnesota members as there are, especially central MN. You were talking to a couple gentlemen when I went buy, didn't bother to look beyond just a quick glance. I was there Saturday, about 11 to noon. My dad did find a nice camo 11-87 he liked for $410, so we didn't go out empty handed.

    Not a bad idea. My buddy and I are going to split a table at the Sauk Center show. So maybe I’ll see some fellow members there.
