What do you all think -- is the 28th show worth it? I've been to too many fun shows that have few guns and are all beef jerky, cheap gun bags, and neo-nazi crap.

Still, it is billed as "Oregon's largest knife & gun show" so it seems worth checking out...

They will have a shitload of guns and other stuff. Prices are hit-and-miss. There is also the jerky table, the beanie-baby table (has a banner that says "Beanie Baby targets"), and the usual crap. I say it's worth it, and will probably be going myself on Sunday if something doesn't come up.

My dad got my christmas presant from there (.380)
Theres a heap of guns for sale as previously stated :)
I rarely if ever even think of going to another gunshow because I atleast know this one is huge.

Unfortunately these are nothing like the shows of the past. Part of it is that the internet has so much info on it and more and more people make use of it to value what they have. It used to be that I would find a very good deal at each show I went to. But now, I go to pick up ammo and to see friends that show up. Don't get me wrong, I still think some pretty good deals can be made, but not as often anymore. There used to be much more diversity in the people that would have tables there.

I suggest going if not for the fact of finding a great deal, then for spending time with peole who enjoy the same thing as you do and make new friends. Swing by and say hi to Cape. Once you find out who he is, then he'll probably point out a few more of us.

Nox, on the outside so you can see it perv!

Holy shit! Nox finally paid to waste bandwidth!

It was my New Years resolution. About time I kept one.

Cape, can you wear one in Neon Green? That makes it so much more tactical. And no excuse that it's cold out either.
