    I started a thread on this a few days ago and didn't get many positive responses. Not sure yet if I'm going or not.

    Has anyone attended this show in the past? Is it worth attending or is there a lot of non gun related venders?

    Many years ago it used to be a pretty good show, but not the last few years. The last time I went was a couple of years ago and the show had gotten so small I was done in 15 min.

    So, no where near the size of the Portland show? Definitely not worth the trip from Florence...thanks!

    The last time I went to the Hillsboro show every booth there would probably have taken up just a little more than what one aisle at the Portland show would hold. I sure wouldn't drive all the way from Florence for it. I will be interested in any report from someone who goes to see if it has gotten any better.

    I would not drive far for it but, if you don"t go it might not be there anymore, I believe this is the second one this year there. Its nothing compared to the expo, but six bucks to get in and, parking is free. Its like chinese food, after your gone about two hours you want to go back. :D

    Hmmm. I might check it out then as it's only about 10 minutes from my house. It's been a while since it was that big.

    This does sound like a much better show this year, I may attend as well. The last one I went to was pretty pathetic, I'm pretty sure us visitors were packing more heat than there were on display.:gun21:
    Anywho, I don't think that Portlanders understand, everyday is a gun show in the Boro.

    wasn't bad. Wasn't huge, but there were some deals. Found a couple "nice" mini-14's for $495, one that was the new style with thicker barrel. Didn't have a cheap single shot 22 that I am on the look out for. But oh well. Wish it was bigger, but for $6 and free parking and only 10min from my house it was pretty decent.
