Due to COVID-19 and the restraints it binds on small businesses, GunShows-USA is no longer able to offer free services.

Due to COVID-19 and the different state regulations, cancellations are overwhelming, which results in several listings on our website not being up to date. We strongly advise visitors of our website to contact the promoters directly for updates.  GunShows-USA is not a promoter.

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.

It is solely up to the promoters to contact us with updates about their shows. 

Generic listings are now referred to as ‘Basic’ listings
