Get Ready For Next Week’s Catron County Gun Show

Submitted To The Mountain Mail

Get ready to get your “goin’ to town” boots on, and gather with your neighbors from all over Catron County and the surrounding region, from Silver City and ShowLow to Sororro and Magdalena for the exciting annual Catron County Gun Show, first weekend of September.
Far more than just an opportunity to buy and sell, it’s where folks go to make trades and catch up with old friends, to talk about local issues and share secret hunting tricks.
One need not even be a gun fancier to enjoy this beloved family experience, the tables of jewelry and down-home crafts, and all the good “fixin’s” to eat. No wonder it’s held at the Catron County Fairgounds, given that it is the most popular public event hereabouts besides the big fair and rodeo!
Stanley Radvillas and the Catron County Sportsman’s Association put a lot of work into making sure it’s a successful, fun event at the tail end every Summer. All proceeds go to the club, and to maintenance and improvement of the Marden Radvillas gun range, one of the finest such ranges anywhere, and made available to the public free of charge.
As usual, the show is attracting private collectors and other sellers from the 4 state area, who will be bringing with them every manner of hunting and plinking rifle, handguns for sport and defense, archery equipment and in-line black powder rifles, knives and holsters, and a wide assortment of hard to find ammunition and gun parts. Whether your interest is in finding a genuine antique cowboy Colt revolver or a .45 compact, you are likely to find it here.
Come early and stay the day. Break out your tired-of-the-closet items to try and barter.
Stimulate the local economy, enjoy good company, and maybe find that special something you’ve so long been looking for at the Catron County Gun Show, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 4-5 in Reserve.
