    Looks like the Collectors West show will be in Hillsboro this weekend. I've never been when it's held at Hillsboro, is it usually pretty big/worth going?

    Several years ago it was pretty good, but I haven't been to it in probably 3-4 years. I've heard it's not that good of a show anymore.

    Yeah exactly, I live a mile away. Wanted to know if it was worth the $6 though.

    I really don't mind spending the $6 to take a look around I get to write it off as a business expense. :)

    The last few times I have gone they were very small and a disapointment. I will still go in hope that things will change. Will be there Saturday

    Well if your eyesite is real good you can stand at the glass door and see everything. OTW take a small pair of Binocs.
    In a few words, Anemic and Overpriced.

    JCWeaponry is there with a boat-load of Sig 522 rifles for $499.

    He is in the same booth that I am in.
