i might, but i had other plans
What's the admission and how does it compare to the Expo Center one? Thanks
It's run by one of the same companies that does the Expo Center one, but is only two days rather than three. I can say that the table fee is noticeably less! I don't remember how the entry fees compare, though. (Benefit: Free parking closer than the Portland Expo Center has.)
Ah, a quick check: The Portland show is $9 entry fee, Vancouver is $8, all of their other shows (Hillsboro included) are $6.
J&B will be there to sell some firearms. Excited!
Thanks for the heads up! Will have to check it out.
I'm coming over from teh coast
Free Parking! Nice smaller show. And the best part it's close to home for me!
There is a cool Quick-draw competition out in front of the show.
I think it's only like $5.
I'm going to try it out!!!
My buddy scored a Chinese SKS for $100.
Quick draw was cool. 45LC rounds modified to shoot wax with 209 primers.
What was your time? I didn;t get a chance to shoot yesterday. I'm going to try to do it today.
I was just watching. Hey who's the guy next to you with the sig stuff. Need a set of iron sights for a 522.
He should have them.
Made it over from THE coast. found some items I needed not bad at all for a smaller show. Beats entry and parking at the Expo center.
I showed up on Saturday. Didn't find the Springer I was looking for, but found a good price on a Kahr I will be picking up soon from the seller.
Better atmosphere than a PDX show, though less to look at. Overall a good show, with free parking.
Capitalism is BO$$!!!
Good show. Got some ammunition for my Mosin-Nagant and yet-to-be-assembled SKS. Haven't taken my Mosin out shooting yet, got a 440-round sardine-can tin of ammo with it, and it would feel a shame to crack open the tin with the can opener to just run 20 rounds through it. One seller had a nice pack of 20 7.62x54R for $5.50. Also got five packs-of-15 sealed Russian 7.62x39 for $4.00 each the SKS whenever I get it assembled. My wife remarked of the x54R rounds, which appear to have copper 'brass': "Oooh, pretty"... heh.
Almost bought the little pink .22 for my daughter, but she only just turned 7, she can plink with the BB gun for a couple more years yet.
No bayonet right? One of our guys was going to get that but forgot he has bills due! LOL!
