    I went once when I lived in Brisbane about 10 years ago.
    I recall alot of overpriced, dodgy kit that didn't inspire confidence. With a bit more knowledge these days I'd feel more comfortable but not back then.

    Also I remember a few neo-nazi skinhead types roaming the hall in their Doc Martins with #1 buzz-cuts and beards, all thinking they're HJ or something.

    I went to the one in February,as you say a lot of gear was overpriced,however at least face to face you can haggle.
    I didnt see any neos there,but in our game you come across all types i suppose

    There also used to be an old German guy who had a stall in the Rocklea markets most saturdays, he had coins, medals and SS daggers too from memory. I recall he was quite arrogant about the originality of everything which immediately put me on guard so I never bought. This is going back maybe 15 years so he may have passed on by now.
