    I'll be there!!

    Looks like there is a lot of ammo at NW Ammo Supply. They are set up near me in the front.

    I was there today, Seems like some of the vendors had a short fuse, and snapped at people. Not as good of a show as in the past. About 20% of building was closed off. Prices are higher then ever.

    If anyone is interested in a pre64 Mod 70 Featherweight 30-06 saw one at the show, its still there, wish I had the 750$ to get it.
    I did walk out with a Miruko 12ga SXS.

    22LR was running $50 a brick and that's NOT for the match stuff either.

    7.62x54R was going for about $100-110 a spam can.

    Aloha, Mark

    Any pistols there at a reasonable price? I don't want to pay for parking and entrance fees to look at $50 p mags and $2000 bushmasters like the Eugene show.

    By the time doors opened at noon, the line was 4 people wide, out the door, down along outside the building and all the way out to the parking lot ticket booths! Wow, on a Friday! Good thing it was sunny or it might not has been as orderly. Lots of one sided political discussion in line.

    Standard price for Pmags seemed to be $30....perhaps the least inflated item. Lots of people buying ammo. Saw 3 different people with luggage and hand carts buying cases....not late vendors bringing it in. 8-10 people waiting for background checks at Keith's and serveral other vendors with guys filling out paperwork. I saw way more women buying ammo and guns than ever.

    It was worth the ticket price to people watch. While the vendors had the usual stuff, it was a different experence than most of the shows I've been to.

    I went on Saturday. Looked like alot of guns were there for sale. Both handguns and M4/ar15s. most were still a bit high but not as bad as a few weeks ago. Ammo was there as well but it was still very high. I found some 10mm but it was either underpowered plinking ammo, or a bit less underpowered SD rounds.
    I only picked up a cheap nylon thigh holster and a cheap mag pouch for my G20 but I saw alot of guns and ammo leaving.
