kane co gun show
Any go to this today?

Among other things, here is what I saw:
$60 m14 mags....
A $3600 5.9 SA M1 garand
tons of $1100 rack grade M1s
tons of $200 hxp spam cans....

wasn't all bad though. It looks like there is a company out of Berwyn that is taking orders for AND manufacturing custom 1911's. Looked like very nice ones too. They are called Union Arms Company.

Man, those prices have really went up over at that show! $1100 Rack Grade M1s? I haven't been over there for awhile, but those prices are ridiculous.

I last went to the Kane County show 23-24 years ago and thought it was a good show. As far as the Garand prices go, I am seeing the same ballpark in the central part of the state too. I see the same dealers at various shows and there are always about the same number of rifles in the rack... I don't think very many sell for that kind of money.

Used to call it the Stripper Show after the organizers took over. Was one of the first shows I saw that sold more trinkets & Snake oil than guns. Based on whats going on in Co, weed will be the next addition, at least the tools to smoke it. Will be another black eye for the sport.

Last time I went was in 2005. Really hasnt changed much over the years. Those prices are in line with every other show in the country.
