    Anyone going to the Canby gun show this weekend? Worth going to?
    Not looking for anything in particular... but like strolling around and coming home with something to stash so the wife doesnt see...

    It is a nice little show. We have about 100 tables in here and a wide variety of stuff. There are some vendors here that do not come to any other shows. $6 admission and free parking.

    Went for an hour or so.... pretty cool little show. Was hoping for ammo deals, but nothing special. Instead I left with an early Remington Model 10 12ga... needs a but of work, but it was cheap and called my name.

    I like the Canby shows waaaay better than the ones in Portland at the Expo center. Parking is free and unlike the Expo center you arent looking at a 15 minute hike from your car to the door. I dont know how the prices compare but when you factor in the time, gas and parking issues I am sure they are pretty close. Not having to get within 15 miles of the city of Portland is worth an extra $30 to me by itself!

    Prices on what I saw was pretty compareable to the show in Portland last week... maybe a few $ less. The firearm selection, at least for stuff I'm interested in (old rifles, shotguns, pistols) is pretty damn good for a small show...

    The best part for me: small. I like being in and out in an hour or two. The kids come with me and seem to enjoy it.

    I'll go again, even with the extra $ in gas (damned suburban and its 13mpg)
