Just got back from the KC show. Did not buy one TD. The market certainly is not "soft" in KC. Prices ranged from $395.00 for junk to $2250 for rifles. I found something "wrong" with most of the units offered that deterred my from buying.

Carbines were in abundance. The best deal was for a great looking one at $875.00 until I turned it over & found a re-leaf carving to the right side of the butte stock. A cougar of something like that. Kinda made me sick to get all excited about finally finding a carbine in such good condition at that price & then the shock of seeing the carving. Hope Fred saw this one & got the serial number for Dick.

There were 5 OM's for sale. $18,000.00 to $24,500.00.

Bought some parts from a wonderful older gentleman & left after 1:00pm.

Maybe next year after the markets crash the prices will fall.
