Saturday morning I went to a local gun show hosted by a Rifle & Pistol Club. They host two of the better shows during the year.
I got there early, before it got crowded, and couldn't help noticing how many elderly men were there. "Where is the next generation of hunters and enthusiasts?" I wondered. Well, as things got more crowded, younger people started filling in the crowd. Some things I couldn't help noticing were:
- too many man buns
- too many people with backpacks unaware of how far out they protrude behind them as they turn quickly in tight quarters knocking into others
- ammo attempting to be sold by those who hoarded earlier and are now trying to recoup their "investment." (In other words, trying to sell off what they've got for much higher than current retail prices.)
There were some Gen 3, 4 and 5 Glock 19s together at one table where I got to handle and compare all three. The finger grooves actually fit me. The cutout at the bottom of the Gen 5 19 bothers me a bit, but not on the Gen 5 17. My little finger is above the notch on a 17, but not on the 19.
Still, I didn't find anything I couldn't live without, but did get a few hours of entertainment on a Saturday morning.
I’m always amazed at the number of firearm experts and appraisers that are in the crowd.
