    And the parking is free as well. I'll be going on Saturday. Plan on buying ammo from the Miwall guy if nothing else.

    An excellent gun show, especially in comparison to the black rifle/beanie baby fest at the expo. Closest thing to the gunshows I was literally raised at in Montana (still go back to Kalispell every March). Rickreall table guys for the most part seem much more personable and willing to listen to fair offers on what they have. Some of the expo guys do make this show, and the easygoing atmosphere seems to rub off even on them.

    Yeah, I may do an ammo stocking thing as well. Crowds get pretty big mid-day so arrive early!

    Was there this morning between 10am-12pm and it was crowded but was able to navigate around. Didn't find anything that I liked and only got a box of 30-06 ammo just to feel I got something. One of the dealers is giving $25 off on all used handguns and discount on used Glocks, that's the only thing I think is worth to mention. Went with a friend who was looking for the big bore 'safari caliber' rifles but couldn't find even one. It's worth the visit if you're nearby.

    I was there early (around 9) and it was crowded. Left for a bit and came back around noon and things were much better. I seem to remember gun shows of years past that were nearly empty and got more people as the day went on. Am I remembering wrong???

    Couldn't stand it... bought an AR lower for the next build while I was there!

    Yep. Prices on 223 were good but not in the market right now. I overheard that their credit card machine wasn't working though... not sure if that's been fixed or not. Bad time for that to happen!!

    Yes, and their credit card machine couldn't get cell service so it was cash only. I bought 500 rounds of factory reload 9mm in the plastic ammo box for $79.99 and 500 rounds of Wolf WPA .223 for $95.99. I've had good luck with the factory reload 9mm in my XD.

    Story I got was they were sent with a Sprint aircard---no signal. They had a Verizon
    aircard at the June show, no problem. Bummer too--I went there to spend north of $2000
    at Miwall. No card machine, no sale.

    Does Miwall come to any of the Portland shows? I think there's a show this coming weekend.
