We are sorry to announce that the Spring Gun & Knife Show has been cancelled; attendance at the Mitchell County event has never equaled our experience in Yancey County and we have made the decision to cancel further activity in Spruce Pine. Hopefully, another venue will turn up one of these days in the Burnsville area and we can once again consider doing more small, family oriented shows.

Our sincere thanks to all of you in the Western NC area who regularly attended our events and all of the vendors who have faithfully participated during the last 5 years. Happy Spring and Summer from the staff at High Country Shows – keep your powder dry!

Join us April 5-6, 2014 for “the best little gunshow in the mountains!” Our new venue at the beautiful “Cross Street Commerce Center” in Spruce Pine, NC is a well equipped, fully restored historic hosiery mill; we think you’ll love the accommodations.

As always, “Bubba’s Good Eats” will be serving up great BBQ with all the fixins’ and the fabulous cooks at “Tri-County Christian School” are preparing delicious homemade baked goods for all to enjoy. Saturday hours are 9-5; Sunday 10 – 4; admission is $8 for one day or $10 for both days. Law enforcement officers and active military are admitted free and we’ll be handing out $1 off coupons for the FALL SHOW at the door, so come early and get yours while they last.

We have a wide variety of dealers including some new ones who are offering custom made holsters and other leather accessories plus concealed carry rigs of all kinds. There’s plenty of ammo, magazines, reloading equipment, accessories and a good selection of quality firearms as always at reasonable prices.

“Trader’s Corner” will be open for you folks that have a few guns or knives to sell on your own or trade for other items, but remember – “No more than three guns on the table at one time.” Breaking this rule will get you a lot of grief and it’s likely you’ll be escorted to the nearest exit! These rules are cast in stone and we are serious about enforcement. Make sure your firearms are unloaded before you come through the door.

We always have a number of ‘drawings’ and ‘raffles’ for nice equipment and perhaps a quality gun or knife. We are also beginning to see ‘vendors offering survival gear’, freeze-dried food, solar equipment, and emergency supplies. This is a family friendly show so bring mom and the kids and come on in for a weekend of fun for everyone; see you there!

Are you a potential terrorist?

This isn’t the first time that our government has labeled liberty minded patriots as being radical. In 2009 The Department of Homeland Security issued a report entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence and Recruitment” which can be viewed here http://www.fas.org/irp/eprint/rightwing.pdfThis report claims that anyone who believes in the constitution or the Bible is a potential terrorist. It also claims that veterans pose a threat to homeland security and that gun owners are right wing radicals. Never mind that the perpetrators of all the recent mass shootings have been left wingers, law abiding gun owners are the real threat.
