|Elitist. Cool. thanks for the referral and no problem using the logo to link to us. I'll have to let Manny or Mike figure out how to track out the referrals and let you know. Might want to post the link in this thread too.|

|Elitist, funny article...but warn a guy first for goodness sake. I approached this thing like it was a serious manifesto and ended up with burnt nostrils and a coffee stained shirt. Oh, well, won't have to trim the nose hair for a good little while.
While an admirable treatise, you did seem to give short shrift to some of my favorite gun show characters :
And how could you possibly have forgotten Caleb?
Then where is Charlene. How could you possibly leave her out? Charlene, of course, is Henry's trophy wife. She's a bit past her prime and has gone a little bit to seed in recent years. Henry, a little p---y whipped, is a very successful self-made man, carries wads of cash he made in the construction business and never met a gun that he didn't like or that was overpriced. Henry always comes by your table and buys lots of stuff at top dollar. Recently, Charlene, having figured her salad days are about over and realizing she can't switch horses the way she used to, decides she better quirt the one she's riding pretty hard and keep a tight rein on. She only comes to the shows to keep a close eye on Henry (actually on his cash/her investment). So far this year she's queered 6 deals between you an Henry.
I've probably missed a few more like Darryl, you know Darryl, the high school drop-out wanna be cop, working for ABC security at gun shows on the weekends. Darryl, you know the 250 lb guy with the size 50 shirt and the size 5 hat who is always parked at the entrance with a hand full of pull-ties, checking all the carry-ins and giving all attendees an equal but requisite ration of crap. Darryl has a big black belt resplendent with baton, 6 mace cylinders 4 pairs of hand cuffs and a nifty walky-talky with that little remote speaker/mic on the shoulder (of course there's no one to talk too since ABC is closed on the weekends). Darryl delights in his little weekend power trips fighting imaginary terrorists (he bags grocery at the local A & P during the week) and takes extreme pride in his finely developed devotion to surliness.
Add your favorite characters to the list folks.

|I have to say that Henry and Charlene have long ago ceased to go to ordinary gun shows; but they're regulars at the Safari Club meeting every year in Reno.
If you have ever been to SCI, you will understand that not all the trophies on display are stuffed, but undoubtedly all of them are mounted. In some cases, more or less daily.

|At AA-Bob suggestion, if you want to see the site, the URL is www.nrvoutdoors.com and the title is "A Field Guide to Gun Shows," in the left hand menu.|

|I suspect that that "mounting" includes "stuffing" also?|

|Oh, there is NO WAY I'm going to rise to that bait...this IS a family site, isn't it? ;-)|
