Torrington to host 11th annual Gun Show

The Ron Gorr Memorial Arena will once again be packed for a nearly sold-out show as the Torrington Gun Show approaches.

All 108 tables will be present and filled with every hunter enthusiast’s dreams.

Most items shown can be sold or traded but others remain more valuable collectable antiques.

The show’s success is evident in every aspect as people from all over western Canada have made a point of stopping by to experience the show.

“We are sold out every year with a waiting list of people wanting to get in,” explained Stan Taylor, organizer and founder of the Torrington Gun Show. “We always have some new exhibitors who are new to our show.”

Handmade work, as well as gun and gun-related items, are to be sold or traded by the hundreds.

“Books are a big thing with our shows and all types of guns; handguns, shotguns, rifles, old, new, used and antique,” said Taylor.

Parking is available in and around the arena and a snack bar will be stationed inside for those who get a hankering for a snack.

Admission is $5 and the doors open on Sat. Aug. 25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sun. Aug. 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Accompanied children 12 and under get in free.

For more information, call Stan Taylor at 403-556-5768 or Gerard Gibeau at 780-603-7301.
