The annual Crossroads of the West Gun Show in St. George, a popular favorite outing in Southern Utah since 1985, is one of 60 such family-owned and operated gun shows presented in the states of Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah, including the regions of Central California Coast, Gold Country, Las Vegas Metro, Phoenix Metro, Reno Metro, San Francisco Bay, Sierra Foothills, Southern Arizona, and Southern California.
This annual show, among the largest and best featuring a 2-day, one-stop event for buying, selling and trading guns, ammunition, gear, knives, bows and arrows, and more, will be held on Saturday, February 18 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and again on Sunday, February 19 when the Crossroads of the West gun show will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Dixie Center located at 1835 S. Convention Center Drive just off the northbound I-15 freeway.
Attendees may bring their own (unloaded) firearms for appraisal, sale, trade or just for show. All federal, state and local firearm ordinances and laws must be obeyed. Loaded guns will not be permitted at the event.
In addition to merchandise, attendees may wish to attend the on-site concealed weapons carry class. The 3-hour class, at a cost of $40 per person, will take place on Saturday beginning at 2 p.m. At the end of the class, attendees will have everything they need to register for a concealed carry permit from the state of Utah.
Program organizers note, “If you only see guns on the news or being used in crimes, you should come out to our gun show to see the other side of gun ownership. Guns are a thread in the fabric of American history. A gun show is a very polite place with military people, cowboys, hunters and families.”
Tickets are $8 for adults. Children under the age of 12 are free with a parent or guardian, as are all active and retired military members on Sunday with military ID or who are able to demonstrate past or present service. Tickets, providing multiple entry during the 2-day show, can be purchased online at www.crossroadsgunshows.com/purchase/ or at the door.
