    Hi Guys

    One thing about Birmingham is that its good to arrive early to get a decent parking space, I had to get my hairdresser van towed off in the spring one as I had to park in a field. Must try the Liverpool area one sometime.

    Cheers

    Hi Reg
    Liverpool is ok, if you want to choose between Leeds & Liverpool, choose Leeds! I will update you on how "good" Liverpool turns out on Sunday! Hopefully getting there early will bag some goodies

    Right.... Liverpool Arms Fair.... absolutely garbage for guns today! It was mostly antique rifles and shotguns, and a few revolvers! I was disappointed as soon as I walked in there!

    After walking around in circles for over an hour, I noticed a Lee Enfield No4. It was marked up at 220... which is a good price I think. I had a little play with it, then walked away, then went back and forth several times. I offered the stall holder 200 and he accepted!

    Then I went to admire a lovely Bren Mk1 dated 1943 and deactivated in 2004. The stall holder had only bought it this morning. He wanted 300 for it. I had a little play with it, and just fell in love with it (I've never held a Bren before) I only had 265 left on me, and after a few negotiations, I managed to get the guy down to 280. So one of the boys borrowed me 15, and now I'm a proud owner on a Bren Mk1

    Hi Lee, well you have a good day regardless

    You have now started on the slippery slope

    Pete did a superb thread on the Bren gun this week, take a look if you have not already seen it. See here:

    Who is the maker of the No.4 .303?

    Cheers, Ade.

    You should of said hello mate!
