    Did the Expo gun show happen this week end? I didn't leave the house but I was wondering if the show went on or did it get canceled?

    I went yesterday and wasted $10 to get in (didn't park in the lot, so I saved $8)

    I didn't go, but I saw a photo from someone who did go: lots of empty tables .

    Of course, I never go to shows at the expo center. Pay to park then pay their over priced admission fee? Not going to happen.

    ARPC shows twice a year in Albany are the best shows in Oregon. The Lions Club show this coming weekend is also worth a visit, if you like to see lots of guns all in one place.

    I don't go to Gun Shows anymore. Total waste of time and money. I haven't found a deal on anything I was looking for or wanted for years.

    Personally, I don't go expecting to find a deal on anything. I just like to look at guns and gun stuff. IF I do find something on my very limited list of things I want, then that's just gravy.

    Somehow, I almost always find something I "need". Usually it's an ammo can.

    If you spend the time to scour the tables and the crowds there are deals to be had. Especially if you like unique older firearms.

    The portland show was a bummer. Due to the weather vendors were leaving early. Keith packed up saturday which left a pretty good size hole.
