Or, why, oh WHY did I choose to wear my dress shoes yesterday instead of my comfy, padded sneakers?
Today was spent wandering the exhibit floor, wrapping up sources for a few upcoming articles and coming up with new articles to pitch to my editors, and hopefully, they’ll pay me enough to afford this antique Winchester rifle.
Yes, you read that right, that’s $350-450,000 American greenback dollars for that gun. The weird thing was, it was the second-least expensive rifle in the case: Its companion had a lovely honey-blond maple stock and even more engraving, and the expected sales price on it was $450-550,000.
If that seems a little outrageous, (and it is), we have this nice S&W Volcanic No.1, for the comparitively cheap price of $20-30,0000.
And finally, signs for the NRA’s new legal services division, NRA Carry Guard, were EVERYWHERE, but more on that tomorrow.
