Went to a gun show in Tucson today. Mask requirements and capacity limits are off, and only a few people were wearing masks. I was worried about lines waiting to get in - last month's show, the first since last fall, had hundreds waiting to get in. I had beaten that by buying an advance VIP ticket, but there were no advance tickets this time. I got there around 8:30 for a 9:00 opening. There were about 50-60 people ahead of me, and by 9:00 there were well over 100 more behind me. There were absolutely no Sako or Tikka rifles on display (unless maybe there was a T3 somewhere among the new guns, which I ignored). An there was very little in the way of interesting or collectible sporting rifles. Or, for that matter, collectible military rifles. A forlorn Garand or Springfield could be seen occasionally, floating in a sea of AR-15's. I did see one rather nice Martini .22LR target rifle, but it was kind of pricey and I passed. A Swiss 1889 Schmidt-Rubin beckoned, but I already have a G96/11, a K11, and two K31's, so I passed on that too. It was attractively priced at $500 and was gone a couple of hours later. The last thing that attracted me was an Interarms Mark X Mannlicher-style carbine in 7x57. I thought it was a Sako when I first spotted it, but no such luck. It was in great shape, but with plain, light-colored wood and a junk Tasco scope, I thought it was overpriced at $900, so I put it back on the table. Much of the real estate at the show was occupied by large dealers with expansive displays of lookalike modern 9mm and .380 handguns and various "tacticool" long guns. Defensive semiauto shotguns seem to be a growing thing, especially AR-platform types. And there were entirely too many vendors selling non-gun-related junk. Hopefully as the gun business recovers, more vendors will show up selling guns and squeeze out the flea market hawkers. Ammo was, of course, the big thing for a lot of sellers and buyers. .223/5.56 ammo is coming down; prices were around 70-80 cents around, down from over a dollar a month or two ago. Still expensive. Pistol ammo was also still high, but more available than it has been. Primers were outrageous - vendors were asking $25 for a pack of 100. Despite the general pressure on ammo prices, I was able to pick up some good deals on older ammo in odd calibers. The find of the day was four boxes of Remington .222 Magnum 55-grain soft points for $20 a box. Also got decent deals on a box of Winchester .38-55 and some Chilean military 7x57 for my Chilean military Mauser. There's another show later this month, at a different venue with a different promoter. Maybe that one will have some guns worth buying.
