I'll make it there Friday night and be on the floor Saturday morning. Looking forward to see what the new location looks like.

Some dealers could sell guns cheaply nowadays,,, I guess that's because they have a cash flow issue.

Back a few days ago, I just wake up from a nap, the phone ringed. Caller was from RIAC, asking whether I wanted to consign items.... I did think consign a few duplicate items half a year back, but situation changed a little bit since then, so I am not in hurry any more.

The caller said they got a consignment from a big name collector... I forgot the name.... The collection is big which will be sold via a few sessions in 2016. That sounds like a Sturgess level collection... The consignor has not showed the collection publicly, so there could be surprise there. This news is like wild fire spreading in a few collector circles.

What collection is this? Sounds like there is something big and serious coming.

I sold 7 pistols in the past 3 weeks, accumulated $9165. Combined with fund raised in 2015, I guess I could play a major one now. But, where is the major one...

I was finally able to find the dealer/individual that was selling the miniature cartridge counter luger!! sorry for the bad quality of the pictures, as i was given permission by him to take picture with the gun inside the case, so there's glare from the ceiling lights & dirt on the glass (& not your eyes)!!!
