    I was there on Saturday. mostly saw overpriced ammo. Looked like pretty much the same folks, in the same spots. There were a few tables selling prepping things, but again, It was things I have seen before. I did happily walk out of there with a shiny new Springfield 1911 so I went home happy atleast.

    After I went to the Oregon Arms Collector show on Saturday (where parking was free and admission was free because I am a member) I drove to the Expo center intending to go to the Portland gun show. I was literally within sight of the booths that collect the parking fee. I saw $8 for parking. I knew admission was $9, so I would have to save $17 on purchases just to break even. I turned around and went home.

    I went sunday. I was kinda disappointed.$17 just to get in the I didn't seem to notice any good deals, and I have always been told that in those shows you can typically negotiate with the vendors a little. Will the show in a few weeks be bigger/better?
