WILLCOX — The Rex Allen Days Gun Show attracted a significant crowd this year.
As part of the annual Rex Allen Days event, the gun show started Friday morning at the Willcox Community Center and ran Saturday and Sunday. Vintage firearms, as well as the newest weaponry, stole the show at this year’s fourth annual gun show.
James Ballentyne, the promoter of the show through ArizonaGunShows.com, said that this show was well attended.
“We’ve got a really good crew and a few more vendors than we did last year. We’ve rolled the price back at the gate to the original price of $6 and $5; we’re trying to be more in tune with what’s going on in the economy. We really enjoy coming back to Willcox; this is our fourth year,” Ballentyne said.
“It’s just really going well; we have a lot of great vendors that want to be here, a full dock of vendors that want to come back every year. It’s fun; we love it. We have a lot of responses. I get phone calls that start about a month out from people who live here. It works out great. We love being a part of Rex Allen Days.”
This year the newest addition to the show was Black Rifle Coffee to the show. Arizona Gun Shows is now an authorized distributor of the brand.
Metal art displays and firepit arts were on display, and the Todd Christine School was onsite selling burritos as a fund-raiser.
