    The parking is free and entrance fee is a reasonable $6. If you are looking for only AR15 stuff, this isn't the show for you. If you like older firearms, this is a great show.

    Sounds like a rather small venue. How many tables?

    200 Tables.
    These are quality tables filled with FIREARMS and related items.
    NO TEE SHIRTS, NO BENNIE BABYS, NO JERKY
    This is a quality show, heavy on older collectables with smaller amount of modern weapons.
    Low entry fee $6.00 and free parking.

    Yup, that's the one. They have information on their website, including the form to fill out. For a while they were only issuing to residents of Oregon and those in Clark County WA (right across the border), but now it looks like they've expanded to anyone in OR and WA.
    From their FAQ PDF, it states "Multnomah County issues permits to residents of Multnomah County and Washington State."

    Earlier this year they were specific about needing a business in OR to qualify, so definitely check on that.

    Was there from 9:00 to 1:30 today. I took my time, and did a quick run thru at start to see any obvious gotta-buy-it-now type deals, then went back through more leisurely.

    Came out with a really nice "Boyd -1945-" stamped holster for my same-year Colt 1911A1, and a nice 1911 canvas dual mag holder

    Also found a nice walnut M1 carbine stock to upgrade the Chiappa M1-22 carbine I'm finishing out with USGI parts.

    Also got a correct Pre-64 style sight hood for my 1942 Winchester Model 94.

    Saw lots of vintage stuff, which is the best thing about this show. No junk - just top notch collectable firearms and accessories.

    BTW, a dude had a post-ban Steyr AUG USR with the factory swarovski optic. It's the heavy barrel version that's importable as a 'sporting rifle'. Looks like it was never fired, and he wanted $1650. I thought about it a little, but figured it would be better to hold out for a pre-ban.

    There is a lot of really impressive goodness there. I went with my wife and a friend, and we spent the last couple hours there; it was a blast. We picked up a Crosman 66, and are looking at a couple of other rifles for tomorrow. We wanted to sleep on it and see how we feel in the AM.

    I made the trek there today in spite of the *@#&@* bridge pedal and saw quite a lot of goodness. My budget was tight but I did pick up a little something for my oddity collection. I'll save up for next year.

    Its a beauty and with stag grips. Is that a .32? did it have to go through OSP or is it antique? $?

    I tried to get back out today, they had a couple of things I liked, but could not make it there. If anyone knows the name of the couple selling the Benjamin Franklin air pistol, they were inside the door, to the right corner, and on the inside of the right lane. I tried to make it out, but it was not going to happen today.

    Dang, I hope I can find them, they were really nice folks, sent me off with some complimentary goodies and I feel bad for not making it back today.

    It's .32 S&W and I didn't have to fill out a 4473; I have a CHL and a C&R. No rust at all either. I tracked it down as a US Revolver Co. (made by Iver Johnson). The serial number puts it as made in 1919
