6x45 Cor-Bon
6.5mm MPC (SSK)

I’d be very grateful if you could mention it to Martin Golland and tell him that I’d like examples!

I have just arrived Hendre, so don’t feel bad. I am a newby to SLICS and I don’t know a thing about where, who, and how on the in-room trading. As I understand, everybody is setting up who has tables now (Wednesday eve) and so the in-room stuff is mostly done. I have no table, and I will be in my room (311) if anybody is interested from 4pm to 8pm for a small amount of some interesting pistol-caliber specialty cartridges, and some interesting 12ga specialty cartridges. Without getting too much into buy/sell/trade type of stuff so this doesn’t become locked, I will leave it at that. People I need to catch up with here: Jon S, Jon C, Paul S, Harrie J, Pepper, K Lampear, Lew, and J Frigiola. I have 5 or so of my draft-version pistol-caliber AP book for a few people. If I don’t see anyone tonight, then I will clumsily find you at the show somehow. Look forward to hand-shakes!

P.S., I am the one who looks like he is not an A.A.R.P. member! :-)

I’m leaving for SLICS at 0530 Thursday, can’t wait to get there!

I’ll be there before noon Thursday. Leavin’ Friday noonish. Hope to meet everyone.

It did not take long for us “oldsters” to realize one of the joys of a show like this when we get to meet the likes of “DK”…(he may never come back again after meeting us…but he’s a welcome “newbie” to SLICS) (and he is presenting at the Thursday night seminar…talk about baptism by fire !

show hall only open from 2-5 today…but long enough to empty the right hand pocket…ouch !!!

til later

What a great bunch of guys (and girl)! I was slightly concerned about the the typical generational gap that I would encounter, but after about 5 minutes it became clear that these guys are on about the same wavelength as my friends would be on any typical weekend after having drank many beers whilst sitting around a campfire and telling nothing but dirty jokes!
