So, the longer your listing is on our website, the better chances of
it being noticed in plenty of time to make arrangements to vend or to attend.
All show listings are on a “Per Show” basis and include all show information that the promoter wants (the more the information, the smaller the text will become to make room) and imagery (many prefer just to add their logo).
Promoters are welcome to submit their own banners, however, the cost to place and list them on this website is the same as the cost of the banners – see banner examples for costs and dimensions.
Should you choose to make your own, please save them as either a jpeg, png, or gif format.
IF YOU NEED GRAPHICS FOR USE OTHER THAN ON THIS WEBSITE, PLEASE CONTACT OUR GRAPHIC DESIGNER – ALL PAYMENTS FOR SUCH GRAPHICS ARE PAYABLE TO THE DESIGNER AT THE DESIGNER’S COSTS. You may contact the graphic designer via our email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details for making personalized banners need to be included in requests, if there are images to add, please attach them to your e-mail with your banner order information.
Banners can be linked to the promoter’s website, coupon pdf, show flyer pdf, social media page of their choice, or google map of the venue. Only one link per banner, all other links can be added to the event listing details.

Gunshows-USA.com was created in 2000 as a hobby-free Tripod site using the free module Composer in Netscape. I switched the domain registration and hosting to paid services in 2001 and have been building it ever since to the point where it became the number one go-to site for info to find gun shows throughout the United States. From the beginning, I wanted to ensure that we listed all shows regardless of size and have offered free listings for 20 years. Unfortunately during the COVID shutdowns over the last few months, we have been maintaining the information on cancellations, etc., we have been taking in little to no income. Therefore we find it necessary to begin charging a minimum charge of $10.00 per show listing (generic/basic listings are now $10.00 per show to list).
In addition, in the past, we would run cancellations, rescheduled, and/or relocated shows at no cost. If the only change is the date there will be a $10.00 charge. We will charge the full banner price if it is necessary to completely redo the graphic on the banner. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope that we will be able to continue being the best go-to site for gun show information on the internet.
GunShows-USA is America-based, American-owned, and American-operated.
