    I did go to the Baltimore Antique Militaria show today. I wasn't planning on it but I was upstairs when the wife yelled up she found something to do and I was shocked that this was it. If the wife suggests going to a gun show for the day, you do it.

    I was very impressed with what I saw. More bayonets than my last 40 gun shows combined. Swords by the hundreds but no Spanish ones. The most common rifle was the 1873 Springfield trapdoor and I did get tired of them. I did get some ammo for my Siamese Mauser and a Martini Henry bayonet and a little bomblet that I forget what it's called, "lazy dog" or something like that. Solid projectile with fins they dropped by the hundreds or thousands at a time. Momentum did the damage. about an inch and a half tall.

    I didn't really find any rifles that I was interested in which was disappointing but there's next week at Oaks.

    No, made from 45-70 brass. Guy makes all my missing ammo. Had 11 Frenchicon revolver on hand also but it was smokeless and wasn't sure if that would be alright in my 1873. He sold 6 boxes of Dutch Beaumont before I got there and was all out. Didn't have any Danishicon rolling block either.

    Just a heads up for anyone going on Sunday. The food there SUCKS and is expensive. We made the mistake of leaving the house at 11:30 without eating, got there at 1:00 and by 3:00 I had to eat or I was going to be sick. Only thing I could justify for the price was a $4.00 hotdog that came with some burnt fried potato slices. Drinks were too expensive for my wife to buy which is saying something.

    I was there from set up on Friday until about noon on Sunday. It is one of the best shows I go to. But you're right, the food sucks. I bring a cooler of drinks and a bag of food. Or we send someone out to get takeout from one of the area places.

    I've found most of the gunshow food is substandard. If you look at the guys that eat it regularly and sit after, you can see the long term effects.

    Gut grenades!! When we worked the SAR East show in Harrisburg in June 2015, we were lucky that they had a farmers market in conjunction. We got lots of fresh stuff to snack on and never spent a dime at the concession in the show. We had a beautiful display but there were no people through the gate so it was a big time loser. I passed on the one last year that was advertised in March. I'm not even sure he managed to get enough dealers to attend.

    We will be going back next year. I was very impressed, actually a bit overwhelmed. I had no real expectations going in. Once I saw what was there I decided to look for a few older types, found three of one all more than I wanted to pay and none of the second. Snider being the first, Italianicon Verterli original caliber being the second. The show I found to be more expensive than others but not so far out that I wouldn't think about it and there were bargains to be had. I also drew a complete blank of all the various parts and things I need but that came back to me after a bit. This is a show I would say you have to prepare for as 3 out of 4 tables will have military stuff rather than 1 out of 15 like normal shows. A bit light on the WWI, WWII stuff but it was there in sufficient numbers. Lots of rolling blocks, several tables of Swissicon rifles which I haven't seen much of lately. Tons of bayonets. I also want to get there early in the morning, WITH FOOD AND DRINKS, and just spend some time looking at things. Getting there late, I had to pretty much ignore a lot of interesting stuff, like Napoleonic hats, etc, because of a fear I wouldn't get through it, and it was tight. We had about 40 minutes to spare so it took over 4 hours to walk through for us with me primarily scanning for wanted items.
