Default Treasures From the Vintagers

Alright I am curious. Did anyone find anything they had to have at the VC ? For me I had my sights on a 36" hammer gun but unfortunately the deal could not be made. Brian Dudley did deliver a Parker he had been performing some work on so I did not come home empty handed. There were some nice Parkers there for certain.

Bought a CH 12ga Bernard from Steve B., sold a DH 20ga and Fox SPE and got a commitment on a Ithaca NID grade 3 super ten. Lots of great guns. Josh L had a Fox XE 16ga that got me thinking. Josh also had a fantastic Fox FE. His Fox D is a good buy for the guy looking for a nice first gen D, looks better in hand than his pictures. Kirby Hoyt had a beautiful Steven Grant side lock that was a knock out for not much money. Steve Barnett had a bunch of great guns including a 8ga DHE but WAY out if my league price wise. Big fun!
The CH Bernard joins my CH 10/34 Damascus, CH 10/32 Bernard and CHE 12/32 #3 frame Damascus.
Randy nice to meet you and chat for a few minutes. Craig

Same here Craig, nice to finally meet you. Sounds like you were in the middle of some good ones. Josh did have some great guns for sure.

Bought a little 20g, VHE, straight stock, single trigger gun, from Josh.

It was a great event. I got to meet some interesting people and talk to others that I only see every year or two.
I'll be there next year and hopefully find another gun I really don't need.

I got a lot of good stuff but no guns. A highlight was seeing a VH 20 Brian has done a full restoration on. More to come on it. I got some Parker brass shells, a great old leather case that needs some love and a bunch of other stuff.

It was nice to see all of you that I did see/meet.

Randy pointed me in the direction of a good lot of Parker parts/collectibles that I was able to buy from another vendor and I am glad to have them for sure.
I was able to get a few cases for personal guns and steve had a boatload of case covers to dig through and I found a couple that fit my new cases nicely.

It was very nice to meet many people for the first time and put some faces with the names. I didn't wind up buying anything except for rounds of sporting clays. I kept pretty busy all three days!

If that's the same gun that I handled and I am pretty sure that it is that is a very nice gun. Congrats on your purchase, I am certain you will enjoy that one.
