West Coast Air Gun Show

35 posts in this topic

Coming March 5th-6th, 2011. The first west coast air gun show. It will be held at the Placer County fairgrounds in Roseville. :good: Just got off the phone w/ Bryan and Assoc., spoke with Bryan's father (what a great guy btw). He tipped me off to the show and said there'd be a flyer in my parts order with details. This ought to be a good show!

Roseville?? They may attract those from Sacramento, but for the rest of us they may as well have held it on the moon!Well, give us a report when it happens...

I think you might be suprised how far folks will come from. While not on the moon, it is the only airgun show west of the Misissippi and guys have been asking. Several friends and I will no doubt be driving in from the bay area. Hope to see you there......Doug Owen

You're right about that! Bryan and his father (Bryan & Assoc.) will be driving out from SC! Thankfully I don't have quite that far to go :1087: It's also the same weekend as the Indian jewelry, coin and knife sho... errr... gun show at CalExpo.Here's a flyer of shows around the country:shows2.jpg

Don't know if you'll make the long distance record for attending the show but, at around 3500 miles driving you should be a contender. You'll definitely see a lot of different country. Have a good trip, I'll stop by your booth at the show.

We need to take this opportunity because like the rest of us Doc is not getting any younger.The vendor list is starting to grow and it should be a lot of fun. If you are thinking about an air rifle this is the place you want to be.Hope to see a lot of you there.Jim in Sacramento

Larry..Larry.Larry...I am so positively certain that Ron Sauls & I carry enough East coast knowledge, Wisdom & understanding to share with the West coast airgunners. We are fully capable of having a great time out of the snow & into the warm sunshine...And with only the slightest possible chance of missing you. We will think about you when we get back......................... On the other hand..California here we come...Can't wait to listen to the stories & take pictures for Airgun Hobbiest..& run itnto more great airgunners that I have dealt with for many yrs & not met..Plus the many others that come to the show!!! The Vendor list looks awesome!!! phantymwulf

My other half's aunt passed on monday so I took her to the airport and flew her up to be with her family for the funeral. Planned on going to this by my self with out the touchy feel every thing kids. But you have to take what life brings you. Kids or no kids I am going.

Made the show this morning. Had quite few things to look at there. I took 800.00 with me and came home with 795.00. I was really looking to spend some money but did not find exactly what I was looking for. I wish the show would have been a little bigger and spread out some. The walking isle's were pretty crowded in a lot of places. I was also expecting vendors there to be selling some new air rifles. Mostly used ones there, some real nice ones and a lot of junk. Just did not find one that said I have to have it.

That was pretty much my experience, we did buy a couple of things but no air guns. It was fun but I'm glad I didn't drive there from a long ways away.

Sure glad I was tied up today and couldn't make it, given the comments of you two. I was kinda considering going tomorrow, but sure won't now.
