    Anybody planning on going to the gun show at the Portland Expo Center this weekend?

    I might be heading up that way to say hi at the NWFA meetup, thought I might head over to the gunshow too?

    I'm going to try to be there when the doors open Saturday. On the lookout for a K31 and hoping I'll find one there.

    I'll be there with Glocks. I have the new Colt AR-15A4 rifle there also.

    Coctailer, with the move to NWFA 2.0, now your avatar/trademark looks fuzzy, in case you haven't noticed. :)

    Has the power/primer situation been any better at the gun shows? I'm just trying to see if it's worth the $10+parking to see if can't pick some up.

    I went to the last two here (One in PDX and one in Vancouver) on Sunday for both and they did have some powder and primers. Prices seemed a little high to me but they did have some. Saturday the selection might be better. (I usually try to deal on stuff in the last hour or so of the shows) I still haven't decided if I will go or not. I need a flash hider or muzzle brake to fit my .300 Blk barrel. 20 bucks plus 10 puts me at the point where I may as well order online.

    I go to the BI-Mart down the street for my disappointment. Free admission! Free parking! (kidding sort of) good luck at the show!

    Yep, I saw $55 for 1lb of powder on one table. I guess the gun show dealers are taking a cue from gunbroker on prices. At least there is plenty of ammo, but a lot of the ammo prices were high as well. Guess I just hope for a cosmic convergence with the powder and primers I need to be in stock all at once at an online vendor so I can justify the hazmat fee.

    Or just keep checking Bi-mart every day.
