As Mr B said, the Indy 1500 gun show was packed. I don't think we've ever been there with the line going around the corner like that. I picked up a few things that I caught my fancy--a new Gun Toten Mamas purse from Hiding Hilda. Even if I don't carry in the bag, the one I got is a good organizer bag and it gives me a carry option. Extended some credit to a young friend who came with us so she could get a bullet ring there too--she'll hand me $5/week for 7 weeks to pay me back, and I will hold her to it.
Giving kudos to Hiding Hilda's husband--he went out and walked the line of folks waiting to get in, handing out cards to the women in the group and giving their location in the building. I probably would have walked past them otherwise once I got in.
Saw Brad of Brad's Knives--he was selling like crazy. Picked up a Hogue Elishewitz from him since the house has eaten one of my Benchmade mini-barrages as well as my first gen Emissary (pretty sure we have gremlins). I'll have to change the pocket clip around for tip-up carry, but at least it can be done on this one.
Saw Tam for a few minutes. Sounds like from the comment she left over at Mr Bs that she had a good day. Think she was just enjoying watching the world go by as much as selling.
Michael Williamson was also there--had an interesting collection of stuff from WWII as well as some of his books. Mr B bought Freehold for another friend that made the trip with us. Michael promised some more books now that he has time to write because he's been banned from Facebook... again. I lost track at around banning number 12, but he says he's over 30 bannings at this point. Not seeing that being banned from Facebook is necessarily a negative thing--knowing your enemies is always a good thing.
Had lunch at Claddagh Pub before hitting the road for home. All in all, a nice day!
