Short notice, but anyone going? Heard there will be some nice stuff to view. Winch, IBM, NPM, maybe an IP and a line out. Fellow collectors welcome. PM, if interested.

Sounds like it could be an interesting event.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to get up there for the show.

I will be attending the October 13-14 show in Richmond.

Have fun and advise if you find any treasures!
Semper Fi, Bruce

I was planning to attend but my wife's sister from Florida  is due  any time now. I was looking forward to it and getting together again.

Sorry we missed everyone. Maybe next time. Great show. Nice to see other members, talk and inspect carbines. Met a few new collectors and we held court showing some of the finer details of identifying original carbines (like early and late NPM's) vs. those that aren't (2 IBM"s). I think the big takeaway is it never hurts to ask a seller to take a potential carbine purchase apart. Never know what you might find. Could be good or could be type 1 and type 2 band marks. When there is one thing wrong, there are probably others. The next Dulles show is right around the corner....

Bruce, glad you can make it. Will see you in Richmond!
