Allen Bowles Gun Show in Cleburne This Weekend

This weekend we are doing a show down in Cleburne, at the Cleburne Conference Center, 1501 W. Henderson Street.

We’ve always enjoyed our shows in Cleburne, all the more so since we discovered a really good Italian restaurant called Pastafina. It is also close enough for us to drive there Saturday morning and only stay over one night.

We have some interesting items for this show including a USMC Officer’s Mameluke Dress Sword.  A couple of double stack Para-Ordinance pistols and a bunch of Bestech knives that we are trial marketing.

Show hours:

Saturday:   9:00am-5:00pm
Sunday:      9:00a,-4:00pm

Hope to see you there.

Premier Gun Show at Allen This Weekend

This weekend we are doing the Premier Gun Show at the Allen Event Center Arena.

The layout of the show requires you to go around thew outside of the arena before you get to enter the area where they have those of us who sell both knives and guns.

We are in the center where the ice would ordinarily be but isn’t.

It’s hotter than___ out there and cool inside, need I say more. We don’t have a lot of shows in Allen and while Lewisville isn’t that far away there are a whole lot of restaurants and other stores near the show so drop on by and see us.

Admission is $10, kids 11 and under are FREE, and Parking is FREE! Say “ALLEN” at the door for $1 off admission.

SHOW HOURS
Saturday 9:00am – 5:00pm
Sunday 10:00am – 4:00pm

We’ll see you there!

Ted Nugent bars guns from his concert in last-minute switch

Another case of hypocrisy.  I never got why people think Ted Nugent is so great for the gun community.  He is more an example of what not to say and do if you actually support gun rights.

From The Hill:  http://thehill.com/homenews/397608-ted-nugent-bars-guns-from-his-concert-in-last-minute-switch

Musician Ted Nugent, a vocal gun rights advocate, reportedly barred guns from being allowed into a venue he performed at in Virginia on Tuesday night.

A local NBC affiliate reported that Nugent’s management made the decision to tell fans they could not bring their guns inside the Berglund Performing Arts Theater in Roanoke, Va.

According to the news outlet, the Berglund Center said that since it is owned by the city it is not allowed to ban guns from being carried into its facility unless a performer requests it. A sub-contract between Nugent and his promoter regarding open carry was shared with Berglund Center management right before the performance, according to NBC.

“It happened about five minutes before we opened doors. We had a security meeting before we opened doors and the subject came up and we said, ‘Yes people will be bringing firearms,'” Berglund Center General Manager Robyn Schon told NBC.

According to Schon, Nugent’s team said,  “Uh, no, our agreement says no.'”

NBC also reported that the announcement was a change to prior rules. The venue used to be allowed to discourage guns from being carried into it, but it couldn’t ban them outright from the property.

Roanoke police would not say if any threats caused the last-minute decision, according to NBC. Schon added that two people were asked to take guns back to their car. In total, about 1,000 people turned out for Nugent’s performance, according to the news outlet.

“There’s always that concern when other people are armed; however, if they’re carrying legally, then we expect them to behave and act accordingly,” Roanoke Police Lt. Jason Holt told NBC.

Forged in Fire

We happened to catch “Forged in Fire” last night after the All Star Game.

Never mind that many of the finest modern knives are stock reduction, milled from precision mixed, melted and heat tempered steel.

There are still a lot of knife makers out there doing it the old fashioned way.

Which is better: Art or Science?  Not really an either or question as there is room for both in the world of knives.

While I tend to favor the manufactured from modern steels for the knives I carry and use there is some really beautiful one of a kind forged art knives out there.

People make fun of Lynn Thompson of Cold Steel for his torture test demonstrations of various Cold Steel knives.  But as hard as they maybe to close his triad locks don’t fold up on your hand and his knives both have strength and the ability to keep an edge.

He also makes modern versions of Japanese swords, Chinese weapons and European swords that are good honest replicas that are also probably stronger than the originals.

The challenges presented the knife makers on “Forged in Fire” approach the absurd.  Last nights show with them beating the edges against bicycle frames was a shark jumping moment.

The home forge assignments are ridiculous, bizarre primitive swords or video game weapons.  A more appropriate assignment might be.  Build us a locking folder.

I really have a hard time understanding why a serious knife maker would go on this inane show.
