Wanenmacher’s Tulsa Arms Show, the largest show of its kind in the world, is coming back to Expo Square (Tulsa Fairgrounds) November 11-12.
From a modest beginning in 1955, the show has grown to almost six miles of exhibits. The world’s largest gun and knife show will fill the eleven-acre building with more than 4,250 exhibits of very fine antique and modern firearms, knives, swords and accessories – on display and for sale.
In November, Wanenmacher’s will host the NRA National Gun Collectors Show.
“This is your opportunity to see many of the finest collections in the world,” said Joe Wanenmacher, who took full control of the show in 1970.
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. Ruger Collectors and Smith & Wesson Collectors will be featured guests.
The Wanenmacher show is international in scope, drawing exhibitors and spectators worldwide.
The public is invited to bring their firearms, swords, and knives for a free appraisal, or to sell or trade.
“If you are thinking of upgrading, you will find the largest selection and best prices. Most exhibitors will take your gun in trade,” Wanenmacher said.
The show will feature celebrity guests, including
Gunsmoke¹s Buck Taylor, as well as Jim West, star of Alaska Wild West. Additionally, John Lott will present seminars on both Saturday and Sunday. Lott is a Second Amendment Champion and author of many books, including, More Guns, Less Crime.
Part of the show will be the NRA National Firearms Museum¹s display entitled “Lawmen and Outlaws of the Old West,” which features guns of Jesse James, Texas Jack Omohundo, Black Jack Ketchum and Marshall Bass Reeves.
Admission is free with the purchase of a new NRA membership at the door. Receive a discounted membership of only $30, 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 $19 million dollars to Tulsa annually, and more people attend Wanenmacher’s Tulsa Arms Show than any other two-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, MacKool¹s Firearms, Green Country Arms & Pawn, Sports World, and Gray’s Jewelry Gun and Pawn in Tulsa and Broken Arrow.
