    My favorite fun show. 400 tables of mostly guns and gun stuff. A few tables of sportsman's related stuff, but zero beanie babies.

    Located at the Linn County fairgrounds in Albany. Free parking and only $5 admission, which helps support the club.

    Great show, I'll be working a booth most of the weekend (when I'm not browsing for things to buy). Love that show!

    I'm going to try to make it. I hardly ever go to any shows any more. I prefer the club show- they usually have more odds and ends and interesting old stuff.

    Great show, I scored on two guns at the last one and was not even looking for anything in particular. Kind of strange too I was at the last two aisles when I found what I had to have (picked up the second one while waiting for paperwork on first).

    I will be there as well with my own table. I stopped at Santiam Buyers, they said the price of Saiga's has doubled----time to sell one!

    I'll be there all weekend. It would be a good show for a NWFA booth.

    Yes it would. Probably the busiest show in Oregon.

    Modeler and I are still working on getting the owner to drop the cash for a supporting vendor tag. He doesn't like to spend money when he can't hold whatever he spent it on. Think we are convincing him though.

    @Joe Link , Will NWFA be there? If so I need to send Modeler with my resub fee.

    I was there today watching the vendors get set up. Looking forward to going tomorrow morning. I will leave with some ammo cans if nothing else.

    It's going to be a great show with or without Keith's being there.

    It was, there was plenty of smaller vendors I haven't seen before to fill the building where Keith's left a hole.

    I wasn't looking for much, but I seen plenty of good prices on firearms and parts. JC Weaponry got me for a couple hundred making swap meet style deals on aftermarket 10/22 parts. Inline Fabrication showcased some new reloading press quick change mounts I will be buying soon.

    I really like how much older collector rifles were there. Much more than the last few ARPC shows. They weren't always the fairest prices but it shows the collector market still is moving around.

    As I suspected, the 22 and powder offers at the show were ridiculous. A few vendors forgot to update their primer prices, still asking $50 for a brick.

    It was a nice show, full tables and well attended! Most of the tables had their Sunday go to meeting prices on, but I found some bargains especially ammo and ammo cans. Like new .50BMG cans for $12. Two boxes of Remington .30/06 165gr SP at $18 each. Lots of stuff, you should go!:)
