    According to their website, Miwal corp is going to be there with their traveling ammo store. They usually have decent prices, especially on factory reloads.

    See you there.

    I've been going to it for at least 30 years--always a good show. The usual dealers, plus quite a few tables that have
    "been in the family" for a couple of generations. I believe Miwall will be there with ammo and hopefully primers. Expect
    a crowd! It's a smaller show than what Albany's ARPC show has become, but still well worth the drive.

    Some humor there I think, not sure John is really looking for a rifle scope. More looking for what will be the theme of the show.
    Always a good show in my opinion.
    Good luck at finding some treasures Gents........

    Will see you all tomorrow at the fun show. I'm hoping to find some 22 mag ammo for my new single six.

    I was kind of disappointed in it this morning, looked like a lot of ammo going out the door though.

    I snagged a 938 from Keith(s), sat in my car for a few minutes, went back in and grabbed the CZ455 Lux he had. Now I need to sell a couple to recoup. Was definitely quieter than last year though. Considering that all the online sites (except for the fairgrounds) show it as happening June 7/8 there may be a good reason for that.

    I went Saturday morning. Pulled into the parking lots right at 8:00 and there was decent sized line waiting in the rain to enter the building. I did find the .22 mag ammo I was looking for. Miwall also had .22lr but the prices were near $50 for a brick. For me, that's just about twice what I'd be willing to pay, but for someone with none who wanted to shoot their .22 I guess it is what it is. Over all I enjoyed the show even if I didn't find anything else I had to buy.

    My cousin came down from Hood River to go with me, it was a good show, around 11:30 it thinned out, and was just right for seeing what you missed before. Good food, too. We really had a good time, bought some brass for way less than i could buy on line, and get it shipped. Picked up some ammo as well , and, looked over the Oregon made TNW line of semi auto ''backpack '' type weapons. They take the Glock 17 and 19 mags, pretty well built, and worth while looking at. I'm afraid there might be one in each of our future.

    I picked up a good deal on an old gerber knife, got x39 for $.20 a round, and picked up an ammo can for $10. It was better for me than the overcrowded arpc show.

    For those of you that went and also bought a candy bar or meat stick from my son (the Cub Scout by the door) thank you. He was pretty shy but warmed up as the day went by. You guys made it special for him and the support is greatly appreciated by his pack. He was also impressed by how many Eagle Scouts he met and is looking forward to working his way up the ranks.

    Overall I thought the show was good, still crazy to me seeing bricks sold for 50 bucks. I was hoping the vendor with the cheap packs would be back but sadly she wasn't. I did pick up some .25 acp up for about half what Bimart or Walmart charges which was nice.

    I always like to see the little guys, I had four boys in scouting and was a leader for years. Great Organization and the wife enjoyed the Dark Chocolate I brought home to her.
    Tell him he was doing a great job, looked really sharp!

    Yeah it has got him interested in shooting and archery. He is now on the APRC Jr Rifle Shooting team and is having a blast. One thing that shocked him at the show was another vendor came up during the last 20 minutes or so of the show and bought out all his remaining chocolate, 112 bars. Shocked us all, they said they had a good show and supported Scouts, they then went over to the Girl Scout to buy some cookies.
