    Cff will have a table at the show.

    Anyone who wants to volunteer to "work" the table.

    Any help is appreciated and welcomed.

    I could sit at the table and dissuade folks from joining the forum. Maybe set up a Crack Smoking Canadians dummy booth and put me in it?

    Going down that way to look at a car on Saturday, so I might pop in
    I dont know that I can volunteer my time for this just because I dont know when I'd be available
    But Im still up for helping at GSO

    I'm your huckleberry. I was going to aggravate cubrock for a while and see if he needed a watcher, and I can relieve y'all after I get a walk around.

    I MAY stop in on my way back from Ft. Mill, but I dont know time so I dont feel like I can 'sign up' to volunteer etc

    @premise
    Have we met at this show before when I had a table? I worked it during a snow storm and met a lot of forum members, curious since youre in the area apparently.

    He was probably talking about me. I have five or six. There wasn’t anyone there with more than that on their table.

    @grungewehr39 , you have seen my Russian. I didn’t see any others at the show. Victory Arms had a Romanian SKS, I think.

    Took my wife through there this afternoon and I believe she has decided that she wants a G42. I guess it will be ok to let one Glock in the house?
