I know I'm late but I'm from Tulsa and imo that is THE only gunshow worth attending.Thanks for all the input, fellas. I did make it to the show this weekend and it was quite the sight. Although I didn't pickup anything, I'm glad that we still have large venues like that for gunowners to get together, chat and trade.
I did see that one guy from the NRA gun reviews/appraisals (Jim Supica). He was very nice and friendly.I've been going to every show for several years now. My buddy & I drive up early from OKC, walk 5 miles through the show and then go eat at Fat Guys Burgers afterwards.
I get to see some friends I've made over the years, checkout the featured vendor display (this year was Ruger) and generally fellowship with other gun owners.
I used to see Wayne Lapierre at the show, but he doesn't show up anymore ... what does that say?
Wanenmacher is THE show in Tulsa.
OKC fairgrounds is THE joke.
Some good shows around the State, depending on who promoter is. But, they are small.
Tulsa Largest in the World. Not by a long shot. Houston gun show is held at George R Brown Convention Center. Impossible to walk the entire show in 1 day.
Same building as Shot Show, a few years back. Rep Nat'l Convention in 2000.
Dallas and Tulsa are close in size
I didn't make Tulsa, last weekend. Had plans to go. Sickness changed it.
I hope to come April, or whenever it is
