Unicorn Sightings

(Edited to add links.  Corrections and additions are in italics.) 
At the WAC gun show. Fairly low turnout, not uncommon in summer, which is why they run a reduced schedule. Dropped a double sawbuck in the I-591 bucket at the SAF table.

Chatted with the K Rounds holster folks and with Dave of South Ridge Arms. Was also talking with a guy from the Washougal River Cartridge Company selling 80% AR lowers and jigs; half-joking I asked what it would cost to rent a jig...
(In the course if that conversation it developed that Dave does they anodizing for them.)

Saw a Keltec Shotgun (KSG)  for sale -- thus the post title -- only $1100. Got to handle it, if they were going for the originally announced MSRP I'd consider one.

Another table had  a 2" (+/-) DA revolver that was read on the hang-tag "Colt New Service .45, with clips". I was intrigued, but the only markings were serial number and itty-bitty* proof marks -- including what appeared to be a Broad Arrow ... .45 ACP? Or .455, or...? Seller didn't know, so I passed. (I suppose I could be mistaken about the proof mark being a Broad Arrow, or it indicating a pistol that was in British Service. Could this be a Fitz Special without chopped trigger guard?  I dunno, maybe if it's still at future gun shows I'll investigate further...)

Magazines for Mrs Drang's Star BKM are running $40 each, so I'll hold off until she decides she needs more.
Saw a Colt 1903 in .32ACP, looked to be in decent condition, but I'm not collecting today.  Also saw a S&W Model 69, which I have an irrational desire for.  Maybe two, have one shortened...

Only .22 LR was Armscor, which is decent ammo but does not cycle my Ruger* 22/45 reliably.
And with that, I'm headed home, I need to stop and pick up some canning jar lids.
