    Lots of Mini Mags for 15 -20.00 per hundred. Lots of vendors missing... Traffic heavy due to hot rod show and the Vespian convention sharing the parking. I'd wait unless you needed something specific.

    We are set up at the show and it is small with a small crowd. Sold lots of ammo and small stuff but not one gun. Not hardly worth doing.

    YES, you are.....It's the Wes Knodel show. (Formerly Rose City) Used to be the better bigger show but it seemed about the same last time I went to one.

    Rose City Show name met something years ago when Ken Glass ran it. I remember his first show was at the Holiday inn.......many years ago.
    Expo should just shut down...way too spendy to even park and get into.

    They seriously need to ditch the Expo and find somewhere else. The shows haven't been worth it in at least 10 years now and the price increases on parking and entrance are nails in the coffin.
    I really don't know why vendors even bother anymore.

    I did not know there was one until I got to the hot rod show. So I checked it out after the rod show. Small crowd. Checked out a few pistols I had wanted to handle. Did not buy though. Looked at 357 ammo for my lever gun. The prices were about the same as Dick's and higher than Fisherman's Marine. Why would anyone pay to go to the show when ammo is cheaper at the store down the street?
