Wanenmacher’s Tulsa Arms Show, the largest gun show of its kind in the world, will be at Expo Square (Tulsa Fairgrounds) April 2-3.
From a modest beginning in 1955, the show has
grown to almost 6 miles of exhibits. The world¹s largest firearms show will fill the eleven-acre building with more than 4,200 exhibits of very fine antique and modern firearms, knives, swords and accessories, on display and for sale.
General-interest exhibits will include wildlife and western art, bronze work and jewelry. Several collectors’ organizations will be present with exhibits and items to sell. Browning Collectors and Smith & Wesson Collectors will be featured guests.
The Wanenmacher show is now international in scope, drawing exhibitors and spectators worldwide. The public is invited to bring firearms, swords and knives for a free appraisal, or to sell or trade.
“If you are considering buying a gun for concealed carry, the friendly exhibitors and staff will help you find the right one,” said Joe Wanenmacher. “If you are thinking of upgrading, you will find the largest selection and best prices. Most exhibitors will take your gun in trade. Like art, antique guns are a good hedge against inflation. The show will feature celebrity guests. You will have the opportunity to meet Don Collier, star of High Chaparral and many other Westerns, as well as Darby Hinton, who played Israel on the TV series Daniel Boone.
The NRA National Firearms Museum’s display featuring The Guns of Theodore Roosevelt and Friends will be at the show. The Cody Firearms Museum from the Buffalo Bill Center of the West will be sharing the NRA Museum¹s booth. They will be providing historical research information on Winchester firearms from the Winchester factory records.
Admission is free with the purchase of a new NRA membership at the door. Those who buy a membership get a discounted price of only $25, which includes a free cap valued at $16.95 plus free admission. Several thousand spectators took advantage of this offer during the past year. Wanenmacher’s Tulsa Arms Show brings more than nineteen million dollars to Tulsa annually, and more people attend Wanenmacher’s Tulsa Arms Show than any other 2-day event at the Tulsa Fairgrounds. The show is open to the public Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Advance admission, V.I.P. Passes, will be sold at 2A Shooting Center, MacKool’s Firearms, Midstates Coin and Militaria, Green Country Arms and Pawn, Sports World, and Gray’s Jewelry Gun and Pawn in Tulsa and Broken Arrow. Visit the web site at www.TulsaArmsShow.com for more information.
