    Remember when gun shows were relavent? Full autos, the best deals around on firearms and ammo, and the beer garden overlooking the event. I bought many a firearm with a pen for the 4473 in one hand and a beer in the other. And the bartering was like old days! The older firearms collecters had a edge on the younger folks when it came to barterin'

    Several years ago I was at a gunshow where this happened rite behind me. I had just checked out a early GCNM at a table very well even checked the bore and mag and was going to look around a bit more before making a offer. I am absolutely sure the gun or mag was not loaded but I was two tables away when it went off. After I climbed from under the table I found it was the same gun I was looking at.:wow: I have no idea who loaded this Colt but I know it was not loaded when I checked it.

    In about 50 guns shows i have been to this has happened twice.Once i wasn't there but was told it was at a dealers table.The other time i was there and a guy pulled a 38 out of his back pocket to show to a dealer and he shot the guy next to him in the leg.
