    We are thinking about having some tables at the Eugene show next month. Do any of you guys have some input about the show. I have not attended it before. Is it a worthy show to attend?

    Albany is better and in a much larger building. Eugene not very gun friendly.

    This is why I opened this thread.... Eugene? Guns?
    would advertising the show bring more protests than the average event since everything in Eugene is protested by someone?
    and
    or
    would advertising bring more gun lovers?

    Never seen anyone protesting anything at a Eugene show . They are always well attended and lots of gun owning , gun loving people are always there . Don't make generalizations just because some crazies grab headlines , lots of normal , hard working folks live in Eugene too ! ( besides , Springfield is just across the river )

    Didn't mean to start anything. Not saying the gun show people aren't gun friendly. The gun show crowd is a great bunch of people. I was referring to Eugene politics not being gun friendly.

    The gun show seems okay, but the building they used the only time I went was small and the lanes between the tables were so narrow that people really didn't have space to stop and look without getting trampled. The people seemed nice enough and it was a decent show with no crap chinese toys on tables. Decent enough to go to.

    you guys from out of the area make me laugh. You act like Eugene is so terrible while you live in cities that are damn near as liberal just under a thin mask...

    Never been any anti gun politics in Eugene... Maybe some pro pot and welfare politics, but not much anti gun politics to speak of.

    PS-show was decent but it was mostly older guns... No trade in Glocks and not a lot of ammo except for Powers...

    Yeah, Bend has some liberal tendencies, but Eugene is just a hole. Everytime I go over there I can't wait to leave. It even makes Portland look good, and that's scary. There are good people everywhere, no doubt, and Eugene is not an exception. But you are out-numbered.
    I spent my time living in the ditch. I've paid my penitence.

    For years the Eugene show was the same weekend as the Knife show, Oregon Knife Collectors Assoc. show. One of the largest knife shows in the country. I go every year. As of last year they moved the gun show to a different date. Not to good. When you have 5000 attending a knife show, you get alot of folks hitting the gun show next door. Like my wife said, "I thought you went to a knife show, how did you come home with a new gun?" :p
