Gun enthusiasts in the state of Texas have set all kinds of records purchasing all sorts of firearms since 2021. It appears we are not slowing down either. In 2022 gun ownership was on the rise with purchases made mainly by women.

Now that some income tax money is coming in, gun dealers across Texas anticipate brisk sales for 2023. Nonetheless, you will find exactly what you're looking for at this Texas Gun and Knife Show at the Abilene Convention Center. Additionally, don't forget that Father's Day is right around the corner.

The Wall Street folks have been predicting gun sales will continue climbing through 2023, as more Americans tend to stock up prior to an election year. Prices have already begun to drop. According to World Population, the times are changing.

That stated, the Texas Gun and Knife Show is coming back to the Abilene Convention Center June 3rd and 4th. Show promoter Janis Hill said, "We are almost sold out. If you are a vendor and would like to set up, contact Janis immediately."

"We are seeing more concealed carry purses and clothing vendors, firearm vendors, and ammo dealers than ever before," Janis adds. I know that at the last Texas Gun & Knife Show I attended, I saw tons of women shopping and looking for guns, purses, and carry holsters and pouches.

Shooting Illustrated magazine is saying that women are still leading in gun purchases. So, if you are looking for that one-of-a-kind firearm, special purse, belt, or ammo, you must attend this show. The cost is only $7 for persons 13 and up, while children 12 and under get in free.

Word of advice: if you bring your firearm into the gun show remember to have it unloaded and checked in at the front desk of the show.
