NRA Gun Gurus,
Jim Supica and Philip Schreier, bring over a half century
of experience in firearm history. Together they travel across
the country, making stops at the NRA National Firearms Museum,
the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum at Bass Pro Shops in
Springfield, MO and the World's Largest Gun Show in Tulsa,
OK meeting everyday people who discover whether their old
firearm is worth much more than they had imagined or only
has sentimental value. Parts were filmed at our show! more

Joe Wanenmacher interviewed
by National Firearms Museum Director Jim Supica and Cameron Gray
at our November 2012 show.
This is the official site of Wanenmacher's
Tulsa Arms Show, the original Tulsa gun show and the largest gun show
in the world. Sometimes publishers or other websites accidentally publish
wrong dates for our show. You can always find the correct dates here.
This is the
show you have been waiting for. We have the largest selection and the
best prices! Bring your guns and knives to sell or trade. If you miss
this show, you will regret it. Make your plans now. Tell your friends.
Bring your kids and Have a great time.
Largest Selection of antique, collector and modern firearms,
knives and accessories.
Time - You can go to small shows every weekend but never
find what you can find at one Wanenmacher's Tulsa
Gun Show. Just about anything you want can be found (if it's legal)
at our shows. For example, you may attend dozens of good shows before
you find an antique Henry rifle, but you may find a dozen rare Henry
rifles at our show. At a recent show, a spectator told us he counted
26! And there were just too many old Colts and Winchesters to count.
Money - Healthy competition is the American Way of life.
Take the example of the Henry rifle. Compare and save.
History - Since 1955, the Indian
Territory Gun Collectors Association has sponsored two shows, typically
in April & October, every year. In 1968, Joe Wanenmacher was elected
secretary treasurer of the club. One of his responsibilities of treasurer
was to produce the show. It was a tiny 100 table show when he took
over, but under his leadership, it grew to be the biggest and best
gun show in the world! I.T.G.C.A. no longer sponsors the show, but
we're excited to be sponsored by the Tulsa Arms Collectors Association.
- When you come to a Wanenmacher's Gun Show, you see a gun show full
of guns, knives, ammo and some military artifacts. You WON'T see lots
of non-gun related stuff or flea market garbage. Not that they don't
want to come, We won't let them. Our show could be 5 times bigger
than it is if we let in all the exhibitors who really don't belong
in a gun show. (candy dealers, spa salesmen, car dealers, etc...)
We limit non-related items to just 2% of the entire show. The building
is still packed - both levels - with top quality gun show merchandise.
Many of the best antique dealers come to Tulsa, bringing excellent,
hard to find antique firearms. (once again, not antique furniture
or magazines, but antique guns and related items.) Our antique firearms
section is getting bigger every year.
Exhibitors - Joe Wanenmacher travels all over the country
to find the best exhibitors with the nicest displays. Most exhibitors
bring their best and unusual merchandise to Tulsa because it sells.
Crowd - Tulsa, OK has some of the nicest people in the world.
Good, hard working people who deserve a good gun show. Lots of people
who don't live here make the trip from almost all 50 states. We even
have several people who come from foreign countries every show. They
know the best only comes around two times a year and they really have
a good time.
