Exhibition and sale of weapons in the US
• Exhibition and sale of weapons in the US
A great report on the weapons exhibition and sale, which took place in the town of Marlborough, Massachusetts.
First, a little information.
Such exhibition sales, the so-called gun shows, are not held very often in our state ten times a year, and in different cities. I usually only go twice a year for the exhibition held in the city of Plymouth, so how to go close.
In the same year from acquaintances I heard that the show in Marlborough significantly more than in Plymouth, so I decided to go there to see and compare.
It must be said that fans of weapons such exhibitions are waiting with great impatience, especially now, when the gun shops mostly empty shelves, and buy ammo boxes melkashki considered a big success.
If the show is carried away, people often come a day earlier to settle in next to the hotel exhibition, and the crack of dawn to queue come to catch and buy something in one of the first, until everything sorted out :)
The exhibition was held on 21 and 22 September, unfortunately, the 21st I was busy and could go only 22 th, when, of course, the most "delicious" was already sold out - for example, I could not find anyone who would sell cheap 22lr only special kinds, pricey.
In fact, gun show - it's just such an arms bazaar.
Those who rent the tables, not only to sell something, but they can and buy something from you. So often people come to these events, not only in order to buy something, but, for example, sell or trade their weapons or equipment.
But most people come, of course, just take a look, feel, or to buy something.
They sell - to show, but in fact everything that causes male (and in some cases female) heart beat faster. Of medals and awards, knightly armor and antique daggers to modern weapons, ammunition, holsters, backpacks, unloading, lanterns and even sausage sausages :)
The prices are different and are not always low. However, there is a healthy competition, you need to just walk a little more, search, select, well, bargain, of course (although I do not know how to completely)
I am at this time the family budget is surprisingly not much undermined, I bought only a couple of hundred rounds .223 and two stores for the AR-15. But mostly just looked at all this splendor, sometimes talking with sellers, something in his hands. In general - have fun!
Let us show you what I saw. I apologize in advance for the photo quality is often the weapon was in a glassed windows, so many highlights and is not very clearly visible. By the way, take pictures at such exhibitions can not be, so that more and this time please consider, oiled frames - due to the fact that the camera was in a hurry to remove quickly.
This is the entrance to the room, where everything happens.
For entry charge, if I remember correctly, $ 8 (can not remember, because I wanted as soon as possible to get inside)
Backpacks. In the background you can see how many vendors show their wares - in just such boxes with hinged glass cover. Sometimes the covers are closed, sometimes, as here, are open.
The German rifles from 1855 to 1945.
Various cartridges (I have, by the way, in the end and then returned to the table, at the price of ammo guys had the lowest, so that .223 bought here)
is interesting. Flares 37 mm (and grenade launcher). As the advertisement - (in Massachusetts to purchase firearms license required) to buy anything at all you do not need the documents.
The guys are interested.
In the foreground - some Israeli product, I do not know exactly what, but I shot carbine Kriss Vector, firing cartridges .45 ACP. Handsome!
Korotkostvol was mainly in the windows, but you can, of course, ask to hold.
A dlinnostvolom was littered all around without any windows. The number of units do not undertake to even imagine what was there. A lot of.
For aesthetes - AP .22 in a pleasant pink color.
Cartridges! The people will sweep away everything. By the way, can be seen behind the hefty cans of gunpowder for those who equips himself cartridges.
For every taste.
STG-44 in .22 caliber, Shmayserovsky.
Remember, I told at the beginning that such events people come to sell something of their own? This one guy was pleased.
He walked with izhmashevskoy Saiga like this, clinging to the trunk of an ad, they say, Saiga looking for a new owner. Unfortunately lubricate the left and exact price for which he sold, I do not remember. But more than 1000, I was surprised, a little expensive.
AR-15 in white camouflage
Weapons victory - Mosin rifle.
They, Chinese only. These were sold at $ 110. Russian - 150.
Polish PPP - PPS43
Tropical SSovsky helmet among some collapse of korotkostvola and others.
Paddle for some reason.
Cartridges 5.45h39. Cheap, but do not take - not enough at whom there is something in this caliber. For comparison, the .223 cartridges go for $ 50 per 100 pieces, and still go and find them.
"Kalashnikov" from the bottom - in .22lr, Chinese. Kalashnikov it only in appearance, the system is quite different.
Lovely girl grandfather sells 100 pieces 9mm Luger.
Then something incomprehensible. In our very anti-weapon state still operates the so-called assault weapon ban - a ban on shops that can accommodate more than 10 rounds. Works as follows: - all the shops, made after 1993, and can accommodate more than 10 rounds - is illegal, for them you can get a real term. All the shops, which are manufactured before the ban (until 1993) - are legal.
As you can see, there is a loophole in the law, as the stamps on the year of manufacture manufacturers often do not put.
But here are selling Magpul stores, and the company was established in 1999, since 1993, t. E. These stores in our state exactly illegal. How and to whom they sell them - is not clear.
The bayonet-knives to the Kalashnikov assault rifle
Here's an interesting machine. I was the only one there. It - the Belgian FNP90, the civilian version. Under it - lower receiver on the AR-15
Here is an interesting guy. He forges knives and stuff and sells. Talked with him, he spoke about the process (I knives complete zero, so that was interesting, although I did not understand everything).
I was just struck by the beauty of its products. Here is my picture blurry one, not afraid of the word art.
And this is a photo taken with Dyadkin site. Very beautiful!

Again prichindaly for ammunition equipment. Bullets, caps, sleeves and so on.
Uncle feels the AR 22 caliber.
Right - Uzi, left - 15 charger pump-action shotgun UTS.
Trunks for AR15 to the upper part of the receiver. AR-15 - weapons with interchangeable parts, so any lower part of the rifle (so-called lower receiver), you can put any stem (observing the caliber, of course).
By the way, absolutely all, except one, of the AR15 can be bought quite freely in any state. Though the internet offer, though how. The fact that the only part of the rifle on which the number - is the lower part of the receiver. The remaining part - are not regulated at all. On the previous picture, to buy trunks, do not need any permission, even in our state.
That is why the movie with 3d printer printed on the bottom of the receiver and called not long ago so much noise. I remember talking - fu that nonsense, to be sure, one Circuits printed. Let the trunk first prints!
The thing is that if you learn to type lower receiver - it means to learn to produce AR15, other parts are simply buying a home delivery.
By the way, $ 10 pc.
