Top 5 Gun shows to attend post-covid

ISOtunes Sport Team / July 15, 2021

After a year of closed shops, ammo shortages, and cancelled shows, the world is slowly opening back up. This means delayed industry events are finally rescheduled, and we think a few trade shows are worth adding to your calendar. We anticipate most 2021-2022 shows will feature plenty of new, innovative products after months of delayed launches. These are some of the must-attend events to check out following the pandemic.


The 150th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits event is just around the corner. On September 3, 2021 gun enthusiasts will gather in Houston, Texas to experience 14 acres of exhibits, seminars, and entertainment. This 3 day event will have everything from guns to gear, and will even feature live music. Attendance is free for NRA members and their immediate family members.

This event hosted by the United States Concealed Carry Association includes firearms safety seminars, a women’s concealed carry showroom, hundreds of new products from industry-leading brands, and a live-fire range where attendees can try out new guns. Scheduled for October 1-3, 2021, this show in Fort Worth, Texas is free to attend for USCCA members. Tickets for non-members range from $15-25.

While registration is limited to shooting, hunting, and outdoor industry professionals, those who are interested can follow along with extensive media coverage throughout the event.
