Gun Show Finds



Log in to see fewer ads
Was snooping around a gun show today and stumbled upon some Remington white box 5mm. The guy had 4 boxes and I bought 3. I figured someone else that was there might want the last box. Best part was that one of the boxes still had the original price sticker on it. $5.80/box

Wow that's neat.

I had to look it up.

Reminds me of the old Rook cartridges.




The only unique ammo I own are a few boxes of vintage .22 cartridges. I worked part-time at a gun store back a few years ago. My boss was a barrel-chested loudmouth bully who frequently drove people out of the store that were trying to learn things, visit, make small deals, etc. One day a gentleman came in with a few pistols, pistol cases and small parts in a black nylon bag. My boss never treated anything very gently but it hurt me a little to watch him throw everything around so carelessly inside that bag. When he was done he threw it at me and told me to get rid of it. Inside were at least a half-dozen very nice, full boxes of vintage .22 short, long and long rifle ammo. Even back then they were worth roughly $20-$40 each. There were a few vintage cleaning kits and oil bottles inside as well. Everything found a good home with me.
