Another good gun show this past weekend. Great to get to visit with several of you and appreciated the feedback on the Trestle Pine’s. John had asked me to shoot a photo to see how I set up at a show. I had 4 tables and this is about 1 & 2/3 tables.
There are books in the fore ground (under the camera) and more odds and ends on the other aisle. The back end of the Expedition is pretty well filled up with a few more boxes on the front seat. Packing to go isn’t so bad but I never look forward to unpacking!!!
As I said, the knife sales were good but from talking to several active gun dealers it sounds like gun sales are slowing up and prices are stabilizing and falling some. The older collectible guns are holding up pretty good but the new stuff is a little soft.
Thanks to Ken Daniels I made a couple of young lads happy with free hunting knives. I’m guessing they were around 10 or 11 and when I started talking to them I think they thought they were in trouble. After a little chatting and the mention of a free hunting knife it was all smiles and high fives. Ken, your program for the Kiddo’s is a fantastic way to get these kids interested in knives. Thanks for making it possible!!! Sure is a lot more to life than money!
I looked out the kitchen window this morning and thought our resident Eagle had flown in with a small northern pike for breakfast. When I looked again I realized it was an Osprey not an Eagle. We don’t Osprey’s hanging around the back door very often and I hope they stick around.
We also have a murder of crows that take up residency out front every spring always ready to harass the Eagle. The crows will stick around and usually clean up any dropped bits of fish or critter that hit the ground. It was interesting to see they didn’t discriminate when the Osprey came in.
Beyond the show and the wildlife, I’m just waiting for more knives to arrive. I’m not sure what order the GEC 54’s are being run, but there are a bunch of SFO’s and if they take priority, it’ll be a while before the ‘regular’ run comes through. Just a reminder, I’m not taking any reservations on these as they’re another allocated item and have no guarantees on how many will come my way.
I’m waiting on the wood to come through for the Trestle Pine Topper. The plan was to have them run mid-May and that’s closing in real fast. Haven’t heard when the SAK’s are coming in but again, hope to see them in the near future as well. Hurry up and wait seems to be the theme this week.
