I was helping a friend run his booth at the show today. Among other things, it got me comped admission and parking. (Plus the fact that I got to hang with my friend and talk about cool stuff.)
And, well, my daughter and I did some shopping.
One of the things my daughter wanted was a revolver. After some looking around she selected this one, a single-action six shot revolver in .22 LR.
While we were doing the paperwork on that one, I said to the vendor. “I’ve been looking for a High Power, would you by any chance have one?”
As luck would have it, he did. A Hungarian made, surplus High Power, with three magazines:
Next thing my daughter wanted was another rifle (I think I’ve created a monster) to add to the AR pattern rifle and the Remington Model 12 she has. We found this one, a bolt action “Glenfield Model 25” (made by Marlin).
And it’s a gun and knife show and we did not go empty handed when it came to blades.
First, we picked up a katana we had on layaway with my friend the vendor:
The blade had been “stained” in a way that really brings out the layers of the pattern-welded carbon steel:
In addition, my daughter picked up a replica of a Chinese sword from the warring states period:
And, finally, after first looking at a cute little folder, my daughter once again fell in love with this fixed blade knife:
She particularly liked the “rough finish” of the blade.
You’ll notice there was a lot of “my daughter this” and “my daughter that” here. The only thing there chosen what I specifically wanted was the High Power. But you know what? I’m happy with that.
