    If you could only go to one (or two or three) gun shows in Oregon, which
    ones would they be? I'm from the mid Willamette valley, so my location
    affects my choices--- are there any shows east or south that are
    worth the trip?

    My votes: The shows in Rickreall, and the Albany Rifle and Pistol club
    sponsored shows at the Linn County Fairgrounds (one of those coming up
    next weekend).

    Honorable mention to the East Albany Lions club show at Linn County
    fairgrounds.

    Salem and Portland not even considered.

    Albany is the best. Of course I am bias as I am a life member of ARPC and set up a table at this show. (only place I will do a table) Next would be Rickreall but that show is changeing and I am unhappy with the people who run it. May not go to that one much any more.

    Lebanon has one at the Elks that is a small show and just for buying and tradeing. Food is great and though the show is small I have a great time there.

    Before the era of background checks at gun shows, I enjoyed the big ones at Portland. I don't even remember what all I purchased there but they had everything. Of course, that was during the 90s.
