expo show the 21st, 22nd, 23rd.


I'm thinking about going on the 21st on Friday afternoon... need a Rock River 2 stage trigger and a lower parts kit from George M. and I need a flip-up MAD rear sight.

If I can't get away from the office at 2:00 for "lunch" then I'll go Saturday.

they have beer there... we should pow-wow at the beer stand after shopping. :)

Well it start4ed with a bunch of us going to get together for an Oregon shoot. Then I thought it owuld be cool to meet people first before a shoot and suggested the gun show. It spawned from there. We even thought of carpooling somehow.

I need ammo but I'm still not sure if I'll have any $ to spend. I'm on hold till Thursday to decide if and when.
Link Posted: 11/19/2003 7:21:03 AM EDT
Well, I'm still in. May not be able to afford much of anything, but should be fun, nonetheless.

I’m a little dude, about 6 foot and 300lbs.

I’ll be wearing my lucky yellow fun show t-shirt and my cap that reads



If you see me there, please come up and introduce yourself. I’d love to meet some fellow arf fans.

Best regards, Chris (JTR8541)

How nice and convenient that is. way cool.
Link Posted: 11/21/2003 11:55:51 PM EDT
i went after work friday and picked up a parts kit.

just assembled it. UPS tried to deliver the upper today and nobody was here to sign for it so I only have 1/2 a new gun.

I'll be at the fun show again tomorrow. Selling a glock 21 in an attempt to fund some new toy.

5'10 250# short brown hair... no idea what I'll be wearing. probably jeans and a gun shirt of some sort. LOL - find me in the crowd. I won't be there until 11:30 - ish.

How was the show? Lots to choose from?
Link Posted: 11/22/2003 8:22:21 PM EDT
got an SW5.... ooooh!!! My wallet hurts.

I was trying to sell my Glock 21 & I ran into a SW5 and the seller took my glock plus cash.

that will be fun to try out tomorrow.

Didn't have much to spend and wanted a red-dot. I bought a BSA and a cheapy gooseneck mount for it. Someday I'll be able to afford an Aimpoint.

Nick
Link Posted: 11/23/2003 12:28:23 PM EDT
Well I will be looking for a red dot aimpoint BTT the next show starts next month. I bought a cheap one to get used to it for now. chose a simmons 4moa with a 42mm viewing. we will see how it does.

I think this was the last show I'm going to. There are only a handful of people that have anything worth buying that isn't way over priced, tables and tables of useless crap and then the flea market people. $7 to park, $7 to get in. Even with shipping prices on the net beat what it goes for at the show. The reasonable people are mostly local and in the book anyway. Only reason I went this time was because the car show was going on the same time and I could save on parking. Hard to say which was more of a disappointment, car or gun show.

I am with you there...Remember when this show was the SH@* to go to?? They were having the "Big" one twice a year and none of the flea market stuff was happening. I hear the table rent is getting out of hand along with the pay the county for a private sale so its really to bad. I hear the parking and admission are going up to $8 next year too...

Shoulda read this post first so I coulda' hooked up with some of you guys...Maybe next time??

Has anyone seen any 9mm Winchester ranger sxt 127gr. +p+ at the Rose City Show's? That's pretty much the only thing I would be looking for. I called every firearms related place in portland and couldn't find any :(

Thanks for any info

One of the ammo vendors had a couple stacks of Winchester STX on the table.

I didn't see what caliber or weight but it was the tan LE box.

Not Miwall, one of the other vendors.

Ok thanks I check that out next weekend.
