The Gun and Knife Show will be in Texarkana this weekend with guns, knives,  accessories, jewelry and more. This event will feature a great selection of items for everyone in the family.

The show will be held on Saturday, Jan. 16 and Sunday, Jan. 17, at the Texarkana, Ark., Convention Center located off I-30, between Jefferson and State Line Avenue. The show hours are Saturday from 9AM to 5PM and Sunday from 9AM to 4PM.

This is a great opportunity to shop for everything you need for your guns from ammunition to holsters. You say you don't have a gun? No problem. There are many gun dealers to talk to with a great selection of different types of weapons. Most of the dealers can also help you select the proper gun for you. Rifles, handguns and knives are available.

I have been to this event several times and enjoy going again and again. There is actually something for everyone in the family at the show: toys for the kids, jewelry and purses for the ladies and all kinds of weapons and collectibles for those interested. I have a concealed handgun carry license so I am always looking for new and fun ways to carry my pistol.

If you want to take your weapon into the show to look for a holster or even look for a dealer to purchase it, be sure to check it in at the front desk. Obviously, you will need to remove the ammunition prior to entering the facility.

Any questions you have can be answered by the very experienced vendors.
