    Collectors West has rented the smaller building at the Albany Expo Center for the last weekend in September. It will be half the size pf the ARPC show but a gunshow none the less.

    If you're in Albany, maybe.

    Probably not worth driving for. Collectors West has a reputation to live down to.

    Beanie babies, beef jerky, eyeglass cleaner, western art, flea market junk. Smaller hall to boot.

    No thanks. I'll wait for the ARPC Spring show.

    They are sold out.

    I can't get tables to sell guns because the Vibrating Pillow lady reserved before me.

    LOL.
    I have sworn off paying admission for any shows until the next ARPC show. From Lebanon to Bend, the rest are just lame with worse or the same deals & inventory my local shops offer.

    Collectors West shows are a waste of time normally let alone in a smaller version.

    This was one show I looked forward to all year. I bet most people go to the show without knowing its being put on by a different host. that is... until they've paid & get inside.

    Oregonswamper is selling me a couple of his tables, so it looks like I am in luck!!!:thumbup:

    The only bad thing is that if I make any money, I'll probably just spend it on ammo from Oregonswamper.:laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

    I also did a double take at the calender on the website. If you look at the days it shows Sunday as the last day in the row before it starts over again if that makes sense. 9am on sat is when it starts.

    the 147gr 9mm subsonic should be around between 100 to 110 for 500rds for Northwest members except coctailer gets to pay double for everything :D. Hope to see some of you guys there. Even if you don't buy ammo please stop by and introduce yourself.

    Welcome to the site!!!

    I was a bit surprised today to discover there were no flea-market tables. Is that by design?
    I know it's been one of the main complaints.

    The show is a lot better than I expected. All guns and ammo related.:thumbup:
