    I was hoping this was not a great southern show, it will be a small show with all the vendors ernie has run off.

    Why do they say, "* Instant Background Checks on Gun Purchases"?

    That's no different from any other gun show or do they mean sales between individuals will get a background check?

    Not sure how they would do that with no FFL involved.

    The Beans are greedy, I expect that the various venues,
    including the MS Trade Mart are booked months if not
    years in advance making the necessity for their regular
    extortionist entrance fee raises quite unnecessary but it
    matters not to me how much they charge or don't, having
    dealt with Ernie, I'll NEVER darken the door of one of his
    shows as long as I live.

    For me it's too much gas money to go up there for very little reward. The few gun shows in Jackson I did go to back in 2012 and 2013 were hit and miss with milsurps plus I have better luck down here anyway with finding interesting items for the collection.

    There were quite a few at the last Jackson show. A lot were mildly sporterized though. Really just needed wood and maybe barrel bands.

    Depends also on the rifle itself. If it was a no4 mk1* enfield then all it would need is wood and a few bands as those are easy and relatively cheap to acquire. Now most anything else like any of the Swiss straight pulls, other enfield models, 03s and 03a3s, etc. can take a lot of money to put back together right and even then unless the original rifle is bought cheap enough then you'll have more in the rifle than it's worth.
