I was fortunate to attend the Coeur d’Alene show on 12-13 Sep. It’s a nice show held at the Kootenai Fairgrounds.
The show is put on by Gary Roedl and this year there were approximately 30 tables.
The first two pics are around lunch time
Rick Montgomery from Montana had a nice bunch of cartridges and books (He had the pre-NATO FA 45 I have been looking for).
Larry Dunn and his wife came up from Utah with cartridge posters and .22 Boxes
Ralph Rake (L) and Rich Raines (R) both from Washington pose behind my poor photo of his (Rich’s) excellent display
John Kunz from Montana is looking pleased.
I would be too if I had a Treeby Chain Gun! John says its not for sale. That’s okay as I had never heard of it before.
Tom Quigley, the philosopher of the show had this to say: “You can’t leave if you still have money.”
All said it was a good show for me as I picked up a few needed items such as a .40 Ground spike, Dela Enterprise 9mm and .45 ACP flares, 5.56mm flechettes, and a couple boxes of CCI .45 ACP experimental shot ctgs.
Spokane and Coeur d’Alene are beautiful this time of year and this show is a good reason to make the trip.
