Went to gun show.
Was looking for T-Tyler adapters (cash&carry/no mail).. Only the folks with grey hair even knew what they were. No find.

Got a good price on some powder. Picked up some ammo and some brass.

Probly be a while for I go to another :yawn:

    Have to go with an open mind and enjoy the surprises that show up. Entertainment and maybe finds.

    I need a smaller, less crowded show I think.

    What is wrong with squeezing between guys dressed in camo and have only bathed once in the past week?:jester:

    Used to go the the show at the Merchandise Mart all the time when I lived there. Of course that was back when it was a worthwhile endeavor.

    I stopped going awhile back. Not on purpose, but I always have other stuff going on. I'm making a conscious effort this year to spend more on ammo, training, and optics than guns anyway.

    Only ever been to one show and it was a small one. Would like to see a larger one, just to see it.
    That shouldn't be a problem.
    Didn't know they were having them in Lancaster again, I go to the one in Bakersfield whenever I am in California at the right time.

    Hell, I didn't think it would be possible, but......................The communist state has more gunshows in a month than we have in NZ in 12 months..........:yikes:
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Might as well order them straight from Tyler. I looked them up on Ebay and the prices were inflated.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil: For I carry a .308 and not a .270

    If you can get them from Tyler, fine, but I don't think Tyler is beyond the promise phase. I've got two old Tylers on two fairly old S&Ws, and they weren't cheap. I don't know why they're not making them any more, or if they are, they're not supplying them. I know they've got a website but if they're making them, they're trickling out.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    There's the www. Prices seemed very reasonable. $25 don't seem out of line at all. Cheap, actually. Never shot a gun with them, but I'd like too.

    Gonna have to go that route I think :up:
