Just in time for Christmas the Silver Spur Gun and Blade Show is coming back to the Taylor County Expo Center Saturday and Sunday, December 1st and 2nd. What I really like about this show is all the gun and knife stuff you normally find at a typical show of this kind. However, the silver Spur folks also invite some other vendors to set up as well, like handmade arts, crafts and jewelry. This way I can take my wife to the show as well.

The best part of this show is, it's right before Christmas and if I take my wife I can give her all kinds of ideas as to what I want for Christmas for a change. The last couple of shows were at the Civic Center, they were the 'Christmas in November' and the 'Arts and Crafts Fair' and I kept getting the old "I sure would like some of those" and "those would be nice to have around the house. " Yes I took the hint and went back to pick up a couple of items for her, but now it's time for me to get into the game. It would really be nice to have an AR-10, Barrett 50, old lever action Winchester rifle or a western revolver around the house.

Kim Sansom the shows promoter says "the Abilene show is one of my favorites we do, because all the people there are so friendly and the best part of this show is, we will be full with nearly 200 tables of vendors from all over Texas."
