    Hi guys;
    Got a big payday coming up and looking to find some good deals. I've already picked Powderhorn out in FG over for what I wanted and thought was a good deal. Does anyone know of any more good shops in the PDX area (west side preferred) that has a good selection of used guns that has them priced as used guns? I'm tired of going in and finding a beat up 10yo 870 Express for $20 less than what I could pay for a new one.
    I don't care how pretty they are, but the uglier they are the better price I better get. I also don't want to have to ask to see every gun on the wall behind the counter to find out the price. The reason I like Powderhorn is they have a lot of used guns in racks that sit right in front of their register. They also will let you wander around behind the counter to look at the new and newer/used rifles. I like to be able to look at everything at my own pace.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Brian

    Al's Gun Shop in Verboort has the best prices I've seen. Every time I search after I've been there, the price is as good or better than I can get online.

    Unfortunately, he doesn't have many used handguns, mostly just rifles and shot guns.

    There is a dealer from the east side of the state that is going to the March PDX gunshow.

    He is bringing 166+ used guns.

    Is he normally there or is this a once or twice a year thing for him? Is that 166 long or handguns? I'm more interested in long guns right now.

    He has never done a gunshow before.
    It is 50/50 hand and long guns.

    Sweet. I go to as many of these Expo shows as possible and it will be nice to see someone new that actually has more than 10 guns on his table.

    I'll look for him.
