    Not really a gun show (no firearms allowed), but a neat little militaria show at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Schertz (509 Schertz Parkway).

    It's one day only, Saturday, June 11, 2016 from 9:00am-3:00pm, and only 125 tables; but if you're into military collectibles it can be a fun event!

    Plus, the two young ladies that man the entrance are usually dressed up in period uniforms which is always cool!

    So, we went to the Alamo City Militaria Expo show this morning, and I found a few nice items. First were a complete set of a Soviet officer and East German NCO uniforms, with rank, badges, a hat, shirt, tie and pants...

    Also scored a Russian MiG-29 pin for a buck...

    A Russian airborne patch...

    A pack of Apollo/Soyuz commemorative cigarettes (seriously)...

    [​IMG]

    And lastly, a Soviet commemorative medal made into a key chain...

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Now the kicker, the Soviet uniform set was $30, and the DDR one $25. The patch was $3, the cigarettes were $5, and the coin/keychain $8. As I mentioned, the Fulcrum pin was a buck, so all in all, I got everything above for under $75!

    Plus, as a bonus, they had two sweet Willys Jeeps out front!

    Unfortunately, it just ended a few minutes ago; but there's another one in October.

    As an additional bonus, we found an excellent place for breakfast in Schertz! It's called BG's & Billy Hannah's at 602 Main, and their breakfast combo for $4.99 was delicious! It was so good that I couldn't resist taking several bites before taking a photo!

    I'm drooling just looking at the photo again!

    Crap, I forgot to let everyone know the show was going on again today!

    Better just to get show info off their website (http://www.acmemilexpo.com/show-info.html) or follow them on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Alamo-City-Militaria-Expo-LLC-402707559819915/).

    Just to note again this is NOT a gun show and no firearms or live ammo are allowed. The Knights of Columbus Hall does have legal 30.06 and 30.07 signage at the entrance.

    But it's still worth a visit. I have yet to go to this show and not walk out with some cool finds. This time it was a pair of Czechoslovak airborne/special forces berets, and two ČSSR medals with display boxes.

    Cheers! M2
