    In my book Salem has gone down hill. I don't go any more.

    If you can wait 1 week, you can go to the ARPC fun show in Albany. That's probably the best show in the whole valley. Only $5 admission, free parking

    If you can wait 2 weeks, you can go to the Rickreall fun show. $5 admission and it benefits the firefighters. Also free parking. It's a smaller show, but definitely worth the $5.

    Thanks PDX I will definitely make both of those shows, they are my favorites along with the Lions Club Show in Albany. I can usually find something at those shows.......even if I don't need it. Need?...
    Just looking for something to occupy some time Saturday.

    Good evening Gents.

    Just got back, it was much bigger than it has been in the past. There were some empty tables and many were not gun related. All in all it was OK, something to do anyway.......Not complaining.

    You convinced me. Went to the show, a lot gun but over priced (at least in my book) did buy a couple of ammo cans.

    As I said something to do. Saw one vendor getting chewed out by a couple shoppers for asking $60 for a brick of Remington or $7 per box of 50.

    I "scored" (ok price with no history known) some brass at the first table I went too and picked up some Tannerite the down hill from there.

    No I don't want to buy candy, BBQ sauce or a para-cord bracelet that my thirteen year old son is capable of making at a gun show...
