    It is a huge gunshow. No plans to go though. Hopefully I'll be shooting my 6-250 (practicing for MO) and working a load up for Lerch and I's monster 338 AM!!!

    I have been going the last three years. Over 3000 8' tables. Pretty impressive. It takes two days to see it all.

    Something to think about: If all our tables (2800 8ft. and 1200 6ft.) were placed end to end they would stretch 5.6 miles!

    If you spend the whole 18 hours we are open to the public and divide that by 4,000 tables, You will have 16.2 seconds to look at each table.







    SPECTATORS:

    World's Largest Selection of antique, collector and modern firearms, knives and accessories.

    Save Time - You can go to small shows every weekend but never find what you can find at one Wanenmacher's Tulsa Gun Show. Just about anything you want can be found (if it's legal) at our shows. For example, you may attend dozens of good shows before you find an antique Henry rifle, but you may find a dozen rare Henry rifles at our show. At a recent show, a spectator told us he counted 26! And there were just too many old Colts and Winchesters to count.


    Save Money - Healthy competition is the American Way of life. Take the example of the Henry rifle. Compare and save.

    History - Since 1955, the Indian Territory Gun Collectors Association has sponsored two shows, typically in April &amp; October, every year. In 1968, Joe Wanenmacher was elected secretary treasurer of the club. One of his responsibilities of treasurer was to produce the show. It was a tiny 100 table show when he took over, but under his leadership, it grew to be the biggest and best gun show in the world! I.T.G.C.A. no longer sponsors the show, but we're excited to be sponsored by the Tulsa Arms Collectors Association.

    Best - When you come to a Wanenmacher's Gun Show, you see a gun show full of guns, knives, ammo and some military artifacts. You WON'T see lots of non-gun related stuff or flea market garbage. Not that they don't want to come, We won't let them. Our show could be 5 times bigger than it is if we let in all the exhibitors who really don't belong in a gun show. (candy dealers, spa salesmen, car dealers, etc...) We try to limit non-related items to just 2% of the entire show. The building is still packed - both levels - with top quality gun show merchandise. Many of the best antique dealers come to Tulsa, bringing excellent, hard to find antique firearms. (once again, not antique furniture or magazines, but antique guns and related items.) Our antique section is getting bigger every year.

    Best Exhibitors - Joe Wanenmacher travels all over the country to find the best exhibitors with the nicest displays. Most exhibitors bring their best and unusual merchandise to Tulsa because it sells.

    Best Crowd - Tulsa, OK has some of the nicest people in the world. Good, hard working people who deserve a good gun show. Lots of people who don't live here make the trip from almost all 50 states. We even have several people who come from foreign countries every show. They know the best only comes around two times a year and they really have a good time.

    EXHIBITORS:

    If you would like a table at the world's largest gun show please see our exhibitors page for rules and information.
