Just wanted to share some of the valuable things I learned at the gunshow today.
1.) The entire military production capacity of Germany and Japan during World War II was devoted to making "rare varients" of their standard infantry arms.
2.) The Greman armys chronic shortage of sidearms is apparently explainable by most of their production winding up in the midwest.
3.) Every Smith and Wesson revolver made between 1969 and 2005 is a rare collectible. (i.e. $1100 for a 24-3 with box and papers)
4.) Most of the Smith and Wesson .44 special production is in the hands of collectors of "rare" models.
5.) What are gas checks anyway?
6.) Tactical precision boxer shorts are the next big thing.
7.) Those of us who shoot and make boolits are getting old.
