A Q pls if I may.

Why would you leave the * things in your car? At most gun shows would you have a problem if you use a day pack?

Thanks for your input, keep up the good work.

Some people use a day pack, I just prefer not to carry it around. I'm likely to leave it somewhere. Either way will work. At a gargantuan show I would likely use a back pack.

I picked up the Standard Catalog of Smith and Wesson over the weekend. Apparently it's out of print, but I don't know if that's because a new edition is coming out or not.

I'll have to look into the other two.
