    I got there at 11:10am in the 15 min I was there 70% of the vendors packed up and left. The $3 to get in was reasonable, but I was very disappointed that the show pretty much ended when I got there.

    Yeah I guess if they just wanted to go find a bargain rather then making some money to spend on those bargains...

    Actually if you read the web site the show went from 7:00am to 11:00am

    Oregon Arms Collectors's Year 2010 Meeting Schedule



    We got there about 8:30 or so

    I took a Llama .22LR auto I wanted to sell and had two offers within 20 ft of the door. The guy who made the second offer ended up catching up with me later and upping his offer. $10.00 less then I was asking but still a bit more then I paid for it some years back and enough to put me over the top on the funds I needed to pickup a new Ruger 22-45RP

    Both my son and I found a bunch of brass we were looking for and I found 28rds of surplus 30-40 Krag/30 Gov. That is getting so damn hard to find. We saw some really nice real guns NO BLACK GUNS and talk to a few real nice guys. A very pleasurable 45 min.

    We then sallyed over to the Expo and stood around first in line to get in to the show at 10am. And almost ran to Keiths Mega Huge display so my son could buy his first handgun a Stoeger Cougar 8045F .45ACP

    We also found some ammo and brass there as well the high light for me being 10 enbloc M1 Grand clips for $7.50 in real nice shape.

    Actually if you read the thread you would know the website wasn't given and the info given said 1pm.

    Also, if the show was over at 11am the guy manning the door should have let me know instead of taking my money at 11:15. It wasn't like there was a sign up with hours or anything. I hardly consider a "Hay buddy you know the shows over and people are starting to pack up." to much to expect.

    When I showed up I saw two people packing, I thought nothing of it. Then I stopped to look at some bullets turned around and half the people where starting to pack. I'm only out $3 but I guess I expect more from people.

    Sorry I always try to check info I read on the internet. Because as in this case the OP had incorrect information. FYI all Oregon Arms Collectors Shows except the Aug 2 day show run from 7am to 11am
