One of our favorite parts of operating a gun store in Olathe, KS is getting to travel around the area to the local gun shows and interact with other gun enthusiasts from across the Midwest. We’ve got a big show coming up in December, the Topeka Gun Show, which is sure to be a great time. If you live in or will be traveling through the area at that time, come on out and pay us a visit!
Whether you’re a gun collector, an avid hunter or simply enjoy looking at and talking about guns, this is a perfect way to have some fun during a chilly December weekend. The show, which is hosted by the U.S. Weapon Collectors of Kansas, will have a wide variety of vendors from Kansas and beyond displaying guns, hunting supplies, outdoor gear and military surplus. You will have the opportunity to purchase the gear you’ve been looking for, as well as talk to true experts in their field. These are eager professionals who are looking forward to teaching you about guns and equipment and answering any questions you have for them.
