(shameless plug) P0liticians don’t often undersell something. In this case, former Texas Governor Rick Perry says there’ll be “close to 20” manufacturers at the 2016 Texas Firearms Festival. Actually, forty gunmakers will be making the scene; including IWI, FN, SIG SAUER, Benelli, Remington, Kel-Tec, Taurus, Blaser, Wilson Combat and STI. The TTAG team will be there too. So click here, buy your tickets and join us October 14 – 16 at Best of the West Shooting Sports (just outside of Austin).
If you’ve already bought your tickets, thank you! The forecast is for perfect weather. Bring sunscreen, glasses, a hat and ear pro (we have glasses and squishies for those who need it). Get ready to enjoy the most fun a firearms enthusiast can have with their clothes on — unless you shoot naked. Which you can’t. Not at the Texas Firearms Festival, anyway.
If you haven’t bought a ticket and have the time free, don’t delay. Buy now. Ticket sales are strictly limited to reduce line length and prices go up at the door. Hotels and flights are still available!
If you live too far away to attend the 2016 Texas Firearms Festival, have other plans or can’t spare the cash, well, that sucks. If so, the question is this: would a firearms festival fly in your neck of the woods? We’re wondering if one would work behind enemy lines (e.g. outside of Chicago, Boston or Philadelphia).
One more thing: Governor Perry’s not wrong. The Texas Firearms Festival’s existence helps make America great. It shows the world that we Americans love our guns. Period.
Governor Perry’s also speaking the truth about guns when he says that the Festival helps make Texas unique. This is the only event of this scope anywhere in the world. We’re proud and thankful that The Lone Star State is home to the 2016 Texas Firearms Festival. Come and shoot it!
