    Went to the small, local gunshow today. Picked up a Citadel 1911 .22LR. I like the feel and it should be a fun, inexpensive shooter. Was very tempted by a SA Micro .45. It's used but looks pretty good to my untrained eye but has 1 mag and the empty plastic case it came in. Guy is asking $550. Was also tempted by a RIA compact for about $470.
    Observation about the gun show----more people attending than I ever remember seeing here and they were buying. Election jitters I guess.

    Was the RI compact new? That sounds high for even a new one.

    Pricing sounds about par for the course! Gun Show pricing is tending to be as bad as retail store pricing anymore. The gun shows in my area sometimes are more expensive than the gun stores. :eek:
