    Anybody been to this show or know much about it? What is it like compared to the PDX Fun (yes I said Fun) show? Is it worth going to? Any details you may have would be appreciated!

    Thanks!!

    Its a great show! I like it much better than the PDX style shows, its the way that good ol' gun shows should be.

    Yes.. 3/7 & 3/8 at the fairgrounds... Used to be a great show.. But..that was back when gun shows were gun shows.. Haven't been to one there in quite some time..

    Good show, great facility. Several hundred tables, good selection,
    not a lot of crap. Tossup whether Rickreall or Albany is my favorite show.
    Both are put on by local people, not Collectors West or whoever. Both
    have a lot of local people that do maybe one or two shows a year--so
    you don't just see the same stuff, different show.

    Either one is much better than the miserable excuse for a gunshow that
    Expo has become.

    I think I will be there also looking for those of you who prefer to take with out paying!

    Hey Joey? You going to have a table to promote us at what many would argue is the best show in oregon?

    I believe there is an exit that says "fairgrounds"

    Should be exit 234A

    Take a look at albany on maps.google.com And look for the linn county expo fairgrounds right on the east side of I5

    Sounds like there will be a handful of us going for sure. Does anyone know if NWFA is going to have a booth?

    Be sure to stop by the US Tactical Supply table...the guy working it looks like a skinny 'lil nerd...but he is very squared away!!!! If I had to go through the door I'd want him with me!

    Seriously he knows tactics and gear...tell him I said Howdy! Wish I could go but am teaching class this weekend.

    Is it legal to buy, sell. and trade at a gunshow? Do I have to record the sale or anything? What are the rules?
