It is with great regret we are announcing the cancellation
of Wanenmacher's Tulsa Arms Show April 4 & 5. In light
of current events, we do not want to put our exhibitors, spectators
or employees at risk. For over 65 years we have held two shows
a year without exception until now. For the safety of everyone
involved, this is the right thing to do.
we are very concerned that the Governor of Oklahoma will follow
the example of other states and limit the number of people
allowed to gather in one space. Should this happen, we want
to give everyone as much time as possible to change their
If you reserved
tables for the April show, money and tables will transfer
to the November 14 & 15 show. If you were on non-renewable
tables, alternate tables will be assigned or a refund given.
If you purchased
Advance VIP tickets, those may be returned to the store where
you purchased the ticket or it can be used for entry to the
November 14 & 15 show.
We apologize for
the inconvenience this has caused, and look forward to seeing
everyone in November.

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
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.
