I didn't pay to much for that old Arisaka, I just bought it a little bit too soon!

Comfortable, small inaugural show, about 60 tables, all militaria stuff. Saw one of the big working models of the M2 carbine sell, a reasonable Sks, some 1918 and 1919 dated Stars & Stripes, lots of small neat stuff. Not a lot of public, but it's just starting. Here are a few pictures...

And a beautiful box that goodies were shipped home in. You'd think a guy with a propeller (and a penchant for wasting his money) might have a need for something like this...About like he needs another hole in his head...
