    free parking the past few years I've been. Even when I don't buy a thing, worth the admission.

    OK so I gotta ask, what makes the Albany show so much better than the others? Because quite frankly I've been disappointed as hell by the toal volume of sheer crap they sell at the Collector's West shows at the Expo Center in Portland. So much so that I vowed never to go to another gun show again.

    This Albany one is put on by the Albany gun club (or something like that). They don't allow more than a few booths of that beanie baby & other stuff. This is the only one I bother going to any more. Lots of new & used stuff, antique & modern. And its only $5 & free parking. You will not be disappointed.

    Fixed that for you.
    If Miwall participated in this show, it would definitely be 100%

    I wonder how this weather will affect vendor and patron attendance this weekend. Almost wish I hadn't sold my boat!

    Worth the drive from Banks.
    I scored some Dillon Conversion kits(1/2 price) 250-3000 precision die set, some brass, bullets, and other odds and ends....Pardner scored a 95% Browning BSS SXS 12ga.
    Lots of guns and rifles to chose from.
