Rory,

It was great to meet you, Joe, Rick and Gene in Tulsa last November. Thanks for all the advice you gave while I searched for and purchased my ‘99.

Best success for you this weekend.

I sure miss chasing through the aisles there trying to stay ahead of Ralph.

One of the good things about living in Texas was the short trip to the show.


I am no longer accepting orders for the Lightfoot scope mount.
I still have Savage 99 sights for sale. I have divested my parts inventory. Please PM me here for contact.

Heck, it was just a hop, skip, and a jump from MD. I'll probably go again next year, fall show.

Darned if I'll drive that far, but I would/should fly out sometime.

No beanie babies.

Lots of 99s there, though nothing I needed - or if I needed it, couldn’t afford it. Saw an absolutely gorgeous stippled 1899 with A5 chkr/A engraving & fancy wood bought, heard there was a 99K w/410 in red Winship case but it sold before I got there, saw a very good/very early maroon combination set with style 1 case (sn 237xxx), minty 99A in 375, THREE of the rare 99E V2 Style 2.. A number of 1895’s (saw 6?), but high priced and most with serious problems.

Lots of other more common 1899/99’s, 1920’s, etc. There was a US stamped Stevens 416 I probably would have tried to buy if I could have found it again.. grin

Quite obviously you engage your mouth before putting your brain in gear, and you have never been there. They don’t allow clothing, food, pretty much any non gun stuff. My wife wanted me to bring back a 2A shirt for my SIL. Only shirt in the whole place was for a vender that had a whole row.

Not the case for the Tulsa show. My observations are based on the show Nov 2021. None of the usual crap that is all-too-often present. That show had tons and tons of guns. Some optics. One person selling pro-gun tee-shirts. A bit of reloading components. One person selling gun safes. Otherwise, an overwhelming amount of guns.

There's tables of gun related stuff, knives, etc. Need small cannon? Great place to find one. Used to be a booth selling vanilla, made it smell nice but they even got booted. No food or non-gun related stuff hardly at all.

About 11 acres of gun tables.

Last year I told Gene I was only coming one day. He worked out the miles of rows, # of tables, and 8 hours of time, and I think he came up with about 12 seconds per table. I only saw the one guy selling 2A shirts, but he wasn’t a shirt vendor, he had a whole row of tables and the shirts had his logo. There may have been a couple more. But since I was looking for a shirt, I couldn’t find one.

Joe, just make one on Zazzle or [bleep], etc. Put whatever you want on it and in whatever color and size. I can help if you use Zazzle and I can ship for free.
