Hey, beats doing yard work... [url]http://rosecitygunshows.com/shows.shtml[/url] March 23 & 24, 2002 Portland Expo Center Bldg D [b]Please correct me on any of the captions![/b] [img]http://homepage.mac.com/davefriesen/Images/0.jpg[/img] Custom built non-functioning 1919 Machine Gun from aluminum. [img]http://homepage.mac.com/davefriesen/Images/1.jpg[/img] 50BMG Bolt action with 5 round magazine. I was in too much shock from the approx. $7500 price tag to even remember who makes it. Guy said it's the same one the Canadian snipers are using in Afghanistan. [img]http://homepage.mac.com/davefriesen/Images/2.jpg[/img] Close up. Just beautiful. Made any other 50 there look like crap. Broke down and fits into a small roller case. [img]http://homepage.mac.com/davefriesen/Images/3.jpg[/img] Also had single-shot, no magazine, for about $5300. But hey, when you're talking about that kind of money why go for the "stripped-down" model? I didn't even bother taking a picture of that. I'm sure someone will tell me what brand these were. ...Must...resist...removing...credit...card...from...pocket...[>(]

I use to go to the Portland gun show several times a year. Ever since that Oregon gunshow law was passed last year the show has really gone downhill. It drove away all the private sellers and cut the size considerabily. They should move it across the river to Vancover.

I think that is a Windriver Arms .50 BMG. Every single gun show I have attended never allowed cameras on the premesis to keep the anti-gun weenies from getting more propaganda.

I'm surprised they allowed cameras. Very bad mojo to get caught with a camera in a gun show here! Nice pics though. -elliott

Now I remember, Windriver does sound like the brand. As for cameras I don't remember anything on the rules about this. I did make sure to request permission from the vendors before taking pictures. With the Canon S110 it's so small that it "prints" less than an Iver Johnson... [;)]
