    I need a LPK so I was thinking about dropping in for a bit if I have nothing better to do. I went to the last one which was the first Hillsboro show I have attended and it wasnt all that great. You going to be there?

    Depends on the weather. If it is nice out I will be working getting my deck in shape and cleaning up the back yard. If it rains, I may swing by the show.

    Depends. I've got a lower unit I'm putting back together this weekend. The likelihood I can show up is inversely proportional to the number of bolts left over when I'm done. :)

    I might. Do vendors typically sell ammo at a discounted price at these events? Specifically, 45 ACP. I won't get my hopes up given the popularity and shortage of 45 ACP rounds.

    This was the best Hillsboro show Ive been to in several years. Coctailer had a nice display, MK tactical and NorthernbornRebel got some of my money.
    I was pleased to attend this time, in past years it has not been worth the price of admission. Free parking, I have not been excited about this since playing monopoly as a kid. A fellow is selling glock mags for $15 each (hi-cap) Factory.

    This is the best Hillsboro show I have ever been to.
    I had low expectations given the past shows there, but I was pleasantly surprised.

    I scored some hard to find M1 ammo for pennies, Colt 30 round mags from sweatybeard, and there were AR lowers EVERYWHERE for sale.

    There were a lot of actual GUN DEALERS there this time.

    Anyone have an address to the gun show? For some stupid reason, I thought it was it at the Expo Center and I almost went. Let me know, thanks.

    Well, I really enjoyed this show, very small but a friendly atmosphere. There was a good selection of vendors and There were plenty of deals to be found, though not much ammo left but that's typical of a Sunday at the gunshow. And I was really only looking for 44mag.

    Went to the show briefly on Saturday. Tried to say hello to Coctailer, but he was busy with other customers so did not want to interrupt. Glad to see this show getting better. It was a real waste of time for many years past. Only bad part was standing at a table looking at a Sig 238 and glancing over and seeing a 1911 .22 pointed right at my head. I know I should expect this type of idiocy at gun shows, but it still ticks me off. At least it's not as bad as the Expo Center.
