    There is a Collector's West show at the expo center this weekend. I'm going to try and go tomorrow. Parking is $8 and $10 admission...
    It's steep but I haven't been to a show in quite a while.

    Let me know how it was. I'm hoping to miss this one. Guess I'll wait for September. Let me know if there were any good surplus guns.

    18 bucks before you even enter the door - highway robbery. Heck I don't think it costs that much to get into the best strip club in Oregon and while the outcome may be the same, the visuals are a whole lot better.

    Agreed. If you're looking for a divertissement without a cover charge this weekend, the Big Rock demo truck is at Northwest Armory.

    I'll admit I pay the LaPine Retirement Home $4 to go through their little, twice a year 'Gun Show' but that is mostly a donation on my part and quite frankly, there are some interesting things that show up from out in the 'sticks' around here.

    I was planning on attending, but then I realized I had better things to do than wait in a line for 3 hours only to be forcefully price raped upon entry.

    I'll wait until the fall to attend another one.

    That's why I support the WAC shows. Free parking and admission for my wife and I for a year, and sometimes find good deals, plus. its a whole lot more expensive to go to the zoo several times a year and not nearly as entertaining.:laugh:

    People keep asking about gun shows in Portland.

    People keep finding out over and over again that gun shows are worthless.

    I keep laughing.

    I ended up going on Sunday. I had fun. There was a few decent deals to be found. Ammo was plentiful! AR parts down to normalish prices. I mostly enjoyed talking to different vendors

    I don't even bother with the big gun shows at the expo center any more.

    Same sad tables expecting hawking overpriced wares.

    No thanks.
