    I attended the OREGON ARMS COLLECTORS GUN SHOW today. In my opinion it is a much better show than the Expo gun show. No tee shirts or Beany Babies. It is a two day show and if you like guns and want to see some great displays swing by there tomorrow. The address is: 8439 NE. Columbia Blvd. Portland Oregon.

    I couldn't agree more. It has always (past 20 years) been that way. More focus on guns and less on trash. And, since it is smaller, there is not the parking hassle, the parking fees, the higher admission. Bigger is not better.

    Parking is free. I am not sure about admission as I am a member and we get in at no charge. I think the admission is $5.00 to $7.00 and well worth it.

    There is definitely more collector firearms of all vintages. You won't see stacks of new weapons in the box. Some of the things that interested me were: Marlin .22 cal. lever action case color rifles from the 1930,s to 1950's era. and some later blued ones. Military rifles from trap door Springfields to M1 Garrands, There is something there for everyone.
