Thanks for sharing your photos. I'm sure heads and bodies were photo stoppers at times because it was a tad crowded, to say the least. The restaurant area would serve as a great venue for vendors, but then I couldn't enjoy my creamed chipped beef on toast and potatoes!
It was my first ever visit, and I was definitely impressed. It was a pleasure to meet Allen Martin, and to examine his incredible workmanship on flintlock long guns. I would truly be thrilled to place an order, but pushing 76 probably is the time to be adding another custom gun. If I can finish my jaeger project, I'll consider my collection complete.
I don't know if it was just me, but the crowd composition struck me as getting a bit long in the tooth, and that is disappointing. I would have been thrilled to see more "young" folks in attendance. Maybe today being a work day had an impact. Perhaps tomorrow will bring more of a younger crowd with deeper pockets.
All in all, it was a day very well spent!
