Gun Show in Sandy Utah is a major event.

 

It is hard for me to be a photo-blogger when the subject is that great event (approximately quarterly) The Crossroads of the West Gun Show in Sandy Utah.

 

No Cameras (slight bummer)

 

But there is a way to give you a feel for the event. In words and graphics...

 

Major traffic (and overflow as well). Imagine a very large exhibition hall with thousands of people, eight substantial aisles of displays on many hundreds of tables. With the hunting season soon upon us, rifles and guns of all descriptions were walking out the door, closely followed by dollies of ammunition. (Have you tried to lift 1000 rounds of 9mm, or 5.56mm or .308 or...? ~ you might be surprised.)

 

Vendors were numerous, enthusiastic and informative; customers and visitors, eager, noisy and colorful. Many dressed for the occasion.

 

Highlight of my day: a 12 year old salesman on his father's stand trying to convince me that I needed a Taser with a 30ft reach – just to be sure.

 

Heaps of stuff other than guns. Knives, clothing, survival food, jerky, polished rock, anything outdoors, leather crafts. Not to forget books, DVDs, and toys.

A very complete show for all ages. (I attest to that because they were all there).

 

Some of the stall-holders volunteered their cards for my graphic project to give you further flavor from the Gun Show.

I love Gun Shows!     So many goodies to choose from; it gets overwhelming.   Also, the Gun Shows remind us of our Freedom, of our Right to Hunt, of our Right to Defend our Family and our Property.

Not a real gun fan but do enjoy the local gun show occasionally. Even if not a fan, it is very interesting. Enjoy your day!!

Fred - you would have been right at home here. Proceedings halted at midday for the Pledge of Allegiance. As a foreigner, I found this quite impressive.

Wayne - the experience alone engenders interest. A lot of my enjoyment of the Show came from talking to people about their passions. Mt interest in small arms stretches over half a century, as does my respect for their capability.
