Small Arms Review Gun Show WEST

since 2000
Phoenix, Arizona

First weekend in Dec

Small Arms Review Gun Show WEST

If you have never been to the Small Arms Review Gun Show in Phoenix, Arizona, you have a few days left to make plans to attend.

This is the biggest gunshow in Arizona, and some say the largest gun show west of Tulsa each year.
There will be plenty of AR15, AK47, Full Auto, SBR, SBS, AOW, Suppressors and lots more at this show.

With the current events, this might set records for attendance and sales.

I can’t wait to see how the show turns out this year. Hope to see you there
