how do you go about buying guns from such an event?
Link Posted: 3/8/2006 6:18:47 AM EDT
the same way you buy one in oregon, except instead of the dealer giving you an attitude, they say"god bless you son!"

Wish I was going. Friend wanted me to go to help him with his table but I couldn't swing the whole weekend. He said it's his biggest event of the year. All those poor bastards in Cali come over to get things they can't get at home and pay cash

I went to the Fall Big show and was disappointed no private party sales and found no real deals.

Hey Guys

I am not really trying to rain snow on your trip.

I went to my first Big Reno show in 2003 and had a great time. Saw lots of PP people.

I was really looking forward to the fall 2005 show.
I was unemployed and thinking of looking for a job in reno so I could be a resident and do some buying and selling in the next show.

It just did'nt seem to be the same show, but I guess with what people are saying here I should go again.



Please report back after the show Thanks

I'm still going you bunch of pussies! Cape, you meet me in lakeview at 12:00 tomorrow, and you can ride with us. I drove to salem and back today, and the snow was bad, but certainly not impassable.

I killed a couple with my truck on the way home tonight. not nearly as much fun as dispensing high speed lead poisoning.

went to the show, the weather was light at worst, and the show was pretty good. some of the dealers said the show was not nearly as good as normal because of the horrible weather on the cali side keeping people from coming over the pass. the drive from oregon was easy. I thought it was a good show, and will go back. way bigger than portland, and no beanie babies, toys or crap like that.
prices seemed real high on alot of things, and one of the dealers explained that most of the people who come to the show are californians. he said when people on welfare in california make more than most of the working stiffs in oregon, they can ask for and get more money than they do at shows in oregon, idaho, washington etc. all in all, pretty good show.

In my exp Reno has always been good. Even last winters show where the same thing happened with the calis, was good. Sorry we missed it but that is just how it is. I did hear from a friend that came back thru there over hhte wekend that the drive from just south of redmond to Hood River was hell.

Glad you made it home safe!
