    Saw this on facebook. Clark County Event Center, Saturday 9-6, Sunday 9-4. Been to their shows before, all guns knifes and related- no beanie babies or other junk. Tons of guns!

    Strict policy against non firearms related items if I remember correctly. It is an actual gun show. Not a show with guns, trail mix, wood airplanes and hot tubs

    I'm thinking about going. Never been to a show in WA/OR. What's it like? Are there many dealers and can you find decent deals? I assume you can bring in guns to sell. Are they friendly to people trying to conduct private sales, (I know in OR that's not aloud)? I've been to plenty of shows and the only reason I ask is different shows have different vibes.

    Thank you

    Washington put a stop to private sales before Oregon did.

    I went yesterday. Most of the guns were new. And for the prices they were selling at I would rather go to a brick and mortar store in case there were problems. Even the used guns were close to new gun prices.

    Went Sunday with a co-worker who looking to purchase her first carry gun. It was a nice opportunity to get a good in hand feel for a lot of common sub compacts and pocket pistols. I do agree that prices felt elevated.
