Calgary gun show

So, my buddy J and I went to the Calgary gun show today sponsored by the Alberta Arms and Cartridge Collectors Association. It was the first time for both of us and we were pretty blown away by the size of the show. The selection of firearms, militaria, knives, hunting equipment and general guy stuff was amazing. Being something of a WWII buff, I was particularly keen to pick up a Lee-Enfield rifle, and I lucked out. I got a sweet deal on a 1943 Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.1 rifle. J was sorely tempted by a mint-condition Garand M-1, but the price tag was pretty steep. He walked away, but I could see the sadness in his eyes. I'll have more pics to show later, but for now, here's a shot of me rocking the Saxon warrior look.

I didn't buy it, but the company has a store on Macleod Trail. I may get one later.
