Eastern Shore Christmas

My wife and I traveled down to Easton,Maryland last Friday to enjoy the town Christmas parade.
Before the scheduled kick-off we enjoyed a few pints and some oysters and a walk among the shops.
This old-school gun shop is  a rare breed these days. You walk in and smell canvas and waxed cotton and gun oil and tobacco. You can actually find 10 ga. shells for your goose guns. Filson is a featured brand.It is getting harder and harder to find a local gunsmith who knows the way around an old Browning or Beretta. I do suspect a small item or two from this store will find its way to my stocking on Christmas morning.

Off-topic, but what are the biggest Steeplechase races on the East Coast? VA Gold Cup? Iroquois?

Thank you in advance...

VA Gold Cup is good. Far Hills in NJ in October is big as the crowds are huge and mainly there to booze and be seen.
Radnor Hunt is a great day of races.
Carolina Cup and Aiken are also bug.
National Steeplechase Assoc. website is a great resource.

This is a nice little shop and they have a good gunsmith, as well. It is a short walk from home and Bannings on the corner has a nice little bar...PRP
