    The C&E Gun Show is in Winston-Salem, NC this weekend at the Winston-Salem/Dixie Classic Fairgrounds, Annex Building. The August show is typically a bit larger as far as number of dealers, as the Annex Building holds more tables than the Education Building, where the show is the rest of the year.

    We'll be there, as always. Who else is going? Will be interesting if the events of the last week affect the show at all.

    I'll have to tell my husband. I haven't been in years, but use to go all the time when I lived in W-S. Thanks for the heads up!

    Mrs, bkv has a pottery class and I need to get my glssses cleaned. It may be worth the trip. If'n I don't make I'll catch y'all the next time C&E is in Raleigh. I will definitely be at the next Dixie show in Raleigh.

    If it's fire sale prices, drop on by the knifeman compound before the show. I can via glock manuals or pocket lint. Your choice.

    I’ll have these guns at the show, trying to turn them into cash or a 3” S&W 29/629. The N-Frame S&W is a 5-screw Highway Patrolman that Pat Linthicum turned into a 44 mag by swapping in a Model 29 cylinder and barrel. The other is an old H&R 999 Sportsman 9-shot 22lr

    When y’all are there, if you see a seller with a bunch of metal ammo cans for a decent price, would you let me know? I’ll be working at the foundry in Kernersville, but could hit the show Sunday morning if I could get a good deal on 10-20 cans. Thanks!

    @cubrock sorry to lean on you, I plan to go on Sunday, but let me know if you see any MP5/SP5k mags
    Just in case I start to get wary of going, it'd get me off my butt and to the show

    Jeppo, do you have a table or are you just going to hang out? My better half and I are going Saturday after doing barn chores and grab a snack. I'd love to finally put a face to whom I'm posting!:cool: I will wear a pink Springfield ball cap.

    Sorry, my similar cap is at the dry cleaners. :rolleyes:

    @MacEntyre and I will have a table next to @cubrock (Catawba Collectibles). I’ll be the stunningly handsome one with the amazing handguns at fire sale prices. :D

    If you are wearing a cap like mine that says, "Shoot like a Girl", I'm worried about you! Seriously! Hahaha. MacEntyre, I think you and my hubby have met at John Travis's school. He's the handsome devil, not me!:rolleyes:

    Personally, I'm looking forward to discovering what "fire sale prices" mean to Jeppo. I brought my check book, just in case.

    I used to be a regular at Tuner’s place, too. I’d buy broken down 1911s and watch him diagnose them.

    Hey! How is the show going? Was it crowded getting in today? Have y’all seen any good deals on ammo cans?

    This is my first time sitting on the other side of the table so I’m not really qualified to compare. As far as ammo cans, I don’t think it’s worth coming tomorrow even if you were across the street. ;)

    I’m sure @cubrock will be along shortly with an educated opinion of the tempo. I think it’s safe to say there didn’t seem to be much panic buying.

    The cheap ammo can guy was not there.

    No MP5 mags that I saw.

    Definitely NOT panic buying. Some dealers had decent sales, but we had the worst Saturday we have had in a very long time. Pretty good foot traffic, but very little was selling. I think a lot of people came just to see if there was going to be a panic.

    I sold one rifle, traded two others, and sold the Elk skin that covered our table. I wanted to sell Jeppo's underwear, but he wasn't wearing any...

    I got a “bullseye” holster, haven’t tried it yet but seems real comfortable. Guy does talk a lot of religious stuff though, if that bothers you. o_O

    Was sad the Kenny’s spices guy wasn’t there, that stuff is like god’s mercy rubbed on a steak... :D

    I thought it was a good assumption. No way to confirm it, but I won't explain why...

    It was definitely not a "panic buy" kind of crowd, but I was so happy to finally meet a couple of forum members. I would not be surprised at all if Jeppo was flying commando. MacEntyre was the consummate gentleman, and it was a pleasure to meet them both. Going back today on our bikes to buy a magnifier. ;)
