    I did and should of stayed home..... No name crappy uppers, looked like they were spray painted black. Going for $800, well I should say not going anywhere at that price.

    Scalping is alive and well at this show! Hope to see better at the Salem and Rickreall shows.
    But we did buy a gun.... That shoots rubber bands to keep the cat away from the fish tank.

    Remember..... WHEN SECONDS COUNTS, HELP IS JUST MINUTES AWAY!!!

    Canby is the closest gun show to me. The last few times I've attended, it is an absolute waste of time.

    WAYNO.

    Forgot to say that we went to the Albany Lions Club show couple weeks back and it was GREAT . Found .308 being sold for $20 a box PMC and Privi got lrg rifle primers for $55 per 1k and there were. At least a dozen or 2 AR's . From Colts to Heavy barreled DPMS's for $1250

    But did see Glock 33rd mags going from $110 to $150..... Guess I can say I will not waste my time and gas going to another Camby show!

    Not sure I'd say that the Albany show was great... It was okay, but not as good as it has been in the past.

    Yep. Waste of time. One dude selling ammo (the only one that had .22lr) was jackass. Acted like i was inconveniencing him because I was only buying 2 20rd boxes of 7.62. Ammo supplies sad (not the fault of the vendors). Not much else to cheer about. Gave me something to do at least and not waste money on parking like at the Portland Expo. I scored much more ammo today from a private seller than i did driving out to Canby.

    You guys are not giving me much hope for the Albany show in a few weeks. :(

    I did all right at the show. Was able to buy 1k+ 223/556 range pickups at a decent price along with a couple hundred commercial 30-06 cases and some 375 H&H Mag cases. It was worth the drive for me. I did encounter one table with mixed 30-06 brass but they didn't know what they wanted for it and so wouldn't sell it. I'm thinking to myself "So you pay for tables at the gunshow and don't sell your stuff because you don't know what to ask for it. Ok, well good luck with that plan. "

    Don't give up on gun shows just yet. The last show I went to was up in Lynden and I was in line 30 minutes before opening and scored all the best deals in the bulding on .223 plus some other stuff. TPrices werent the cheapest ive seen, but I walked out with everything I was looking for. Just get there and be one of the first in line and if there are deals, theyll be yours.

    Sounds kind of like Cambodia. Was the jerky skewered with punji sticks?
