This was a middlin'-size loophole, somewhere around a couple hundred tables. At the usual busiest time, mid-day Saturday, traffic was brisk but not jammed to the extent we've been seeing since November. You could get to the tables and coon finger the stuff. Observations:
--I've rarely seen so much U.S. military webbing and other field gear from the WW2/Korea era. The market hasn't decided on values. For instance, similar .45 magazine pouches carried askings from $10 to $25. One entrenching tool was offered at $15, a near twin at $50. And so forth.
--Everyday M1 Carbines seem to have settled to an arguing range centered on $800. (I saw only Inlands.)
--Plenty of 5.56x45 (.223 McNamara Stalemate) was on the tables at $.80-$-1 per round. Heavier popular rifle calibers were at $1 and higher.
--Components continued scarce and expensive. I saw no powder. Primers were tagged at $5 and $6 per hundred. I did see what I considered a bargain by recent standards, .223MS brass polished, sized, and primed at 20 cents.
--Everyone wanted .22LR. Only a little offered, but I saw nothing sell at the prevailing asks of $60 to $90.
--The dealers I know well enough to chat with reported gun sales slow to non-existent.
