Happy Fourth of July— No Show This Weekend

I know Covid 19 limits the number of things we can do safely to celebrate this most American of American Holidays.

But it is, nonetheless the birthday of our Declaration of Independence.  It marks not the start of the War, which happened in the Spring of 1775 nor the end of the Revolutionary War in the late summer of 1783. (April 19, 1775 – September 3, 1783)

Rather it marks the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson. Lately it has become fashionable to tear down people I look upon as heroes.  They aren’t perfect by today’s standards, many owned slaves, but like Jefferson they had an extremely idealistic vision that far exceeded the reality of their lives and the times they lived in.

We live in troubled times.  Covid 19, too much hatred among all of us Americans, the financial insecurity brought on by the Pandemic.

Time to reflect on the wisdom of the Declaration.  Time to stand both strong and wisely, treat each other with the respect we, ourselves wish to be treated with.

We were pleased by the level of mask compliance at the Premier Show in Fort Worth.  There isn’t a show this week. We have an order of a bunch more knives coming in Monday.  I turn 73 next week and God willing we will be back in Fort Worth the Weekend of July 11-12.

Take care of yourselves, especially this weekend. Stay safe and be kind to each other.

Happy Fourth of July

Yippie Dallas Market Hall Show This weekend Now Promoted by Premier Gun Shows

We are back at Dallas Market Hall this weekend.  Back in Dallas with Premier Gun Shows.

North Richland Hills was… Well sort of hot and muggy as well as a bit weird on the lay out, but it was great seeing our people again.  We’ve really worried about our fellow geezers, especially those of you who have confided health issues to us. We want to see everyone make it through this really bad patch.

Admission is $10 and Kids 11 and under are FREE, and Parking is FREE!

Saturday 9:00am – 5:00pm
Sunday 10:00am – 4:00pm

We hope to see you there

Another Weekend Without a Show But Next Week We’re Back

Another weekend of pigging out on Netflix. Doing stuff around the house, playing computer games, reading, listening to music.

Laughing my ass off at all the preppers who were prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse but can’t handle sitting around socially isolating.

Seriously folks, wearing the mask is the same level of self defense as carrying a concealed weapon and social distancing is part of situational awareness.

Next weekend we are going to be at:

NYTEX Sports Centre, 8851 Ice House Drive – North Richland Hills, TX 76180

Our big concern is droplet spray from people talking to us.  We see the spots on our goods so it is a reality.  We are old and vulnerable.  We will be wearing masks and hopefully face shields.  We can make this work and still protect ourselves.

We want the shows to stay open and we neither want to get sick or see any of you guys get sick.  So think of acting in a way that reflects an awareness of the risks and act appropriately

Happy Memorial Day

This was supposed to be the first Dallas Market Hall Show put on by Premier Shows.

Tina and I were looking forward to it with high hopes of Michelle and Tim and the rest of their crew revitalizing the venue.

We were also looking forward to the shows resuming both because we miss folks and because it is our retirement business and I don’t want to have to go back to working the Big Box Stores.

When I was growing up in the Adirondack Mountains there was always a Memorial Day Parade honoring those who died for this country.  It was both a somber and festive holiday for along with salutes to the fallen and the placing of flags on graves Memorial Day marked the start of the summer season which ran through Labor Day.  Time to put boats in the lakes and go swimming in the bracing 55 degree water.

Stay safe every one.  Especially i9f you are one of us geezers with various ailments that make us extra vulnerable.

At this point we are hanging in there and hoping Waxahachie June 13-14 is a go.

Another Weekend

Hey we miss all of you.  Vendors, customers, promoters alike.

We talked to the folks at Premier and the Big Town Show is canceled but we made a deposit for the Market Hall Show.  I mentioned we would probably still be wearing masks and gloves because I’m 72 and Tina is 81.  Yes she had a birthday in April.

I’m watching people do really dumb shit.  Protesting while carrying guns.  Refusing to wear masks.

You are our people.  Some of you prep.  Most of you believe in self defense and how the Second Amendment is about being able to keep and bear arms for purposes of self defense.

Wearing a mask in public, social distancing etc are acts of situational awareness and self-defense.  We don’t want to lose any of you.

Take care of yourselves and families.  We hope to se each and every one of you.

Happy Easter Y’all and Stay Safe

Happy Easter Pictures Photos And Happy Easter 2020 Images Free ...

We wish all of you a Happy Easter and Happy Passover.  Spend your Holidays safely and wisely we don’t want to lose any of our friends from the Shows.

We are bored and frightened by this virus as our age and health conditions as well as those of our friends tends to place us among the more vulnerable.

Shout out to Wes, the Irascible vendor with the Incredible Abrasive Personality, Aloha and thanks for those Pandemic Protection Kits.  We are using the Masks every time we go out to the store.

We miss you guys.  God willing we will be able to start doing shows again towards the end of next month.

Tina and Suzy
