Gun Shows
« on: February 10, 2005, 10:46:46 pm »

Well, somewhere there was an old thread to list gun shows. I wasn't able to find it. At any rate, it is not in the Gun thread, so I am starting a new one:

PRO Gun Show - Westland Mall, Columbus, Ohio
02/12/2005
PRO Gun Show is set for February 12-13 in Columbus, Ohio at the former J.C. Penney store at Westland Mall on West Broad Street. Admission is $6. Ladies, children under 13 and Life Members of Peoples Rights Organization are admitted free.  Show hours are 9-5 on Saturday, and 9-4 on Sunday. For additional information, times and directions, call 614-523-7759.  Vendors seeking table availability should call 614-523-7767.  All net proceeds of every PRO Gun Show help fund community education programs, law enforcement endorsed child safety programs, crime avoidance events for women, and youth education and gun safety training programs.  ALL PRO GUN SHOWS ARE COPYRIGHTED.  ACCORDINGLY, CAMERAS ARE NOT PERMITTED INSIDE THESE SHOWS.

There's a Wannemacher show in Tulsa April 2 and 3, that's right, this weekend.  I probably should have posted it sooner, but we've been busy at work, which is where I post from most days.  In fact, I should be on the phone right now, but I'm not.  Details

For those who want to attend shows in either the Tulsa or Oklahoma City area, Bob's Guns (based in Tulsa and Bartlesville) lists shows in both cities on his website:  http://www.bobsgunsok.com/Shows.htm

I hit most of the ones in Tulsa, even if I'm not going to buy anything.  I've never been to one in OKC.
