My recovery from the strokes has been good, but while I can walk further and better than at anytime since the strokes, I don't have a whole lot of stamina and begin to go wobbly on my pins after a while. So, with the help of a friend, I did it in a wheelchair.
The show was, for me, a complete disappointment. Matt had sent some money so I could find him some items, but they were not to be found. For myself, I was simply looking for some cheap empty ChiCom/Soviet style wooden crates to nest two M19A1 cans per in (like the one below) to finish out a previous reloading job.
In the past, I've found them readily for a couple of bucks each. Nobody had any they wanted to part with. In the process of asking around I did find a fellow who simply gave one of this type below, but although I appreciated it and will find a use for the box, the entire experience wasn't worth the $8.00 admission.
We went early this Sunday morning, and the aisles were filling up as we left, but the prices on military-pattern semi-autos were ridiculous although there seemed to be ample stocks.
Also, trying to view anything from wheelchair level was both frustrating and dangerous, with the situational awareness of others being the main concern. Hopefully, by the next show I'll be done with wheelchairs.
