Listings Descriptions & Pricing


“A man who stops advertising to save money is like a man who stops a clock to save time.”

– Henry Ford


GunShows-USA is gun & knife show specific

“Outdoor Shows” are not considered gun & knife show-specific as they cater to hunting, fishing, and boating sports.

Events acceptable for listing on GunShows-USA are considered as the following:

Gun shows

Knife shows

Militaria shows

Antique weapons collectors’ shows

Preppers shows

Preppers shows are preparedness/survivalist shows and do include hunting and fishing vendors. 

While many gun show promoters do allow hunting and fishing vendors to set up at their events,
their shows are still gun and knife show specific.

Please read descriptions before submitting show listings

GunShows-USA is a site for advertising gun, knife, militaria, prepper, and antique weapons shows

We offer business advertising as well, but it must be directly related to the gun show industry, and it must be based and operated from inside the U.S.A.
See our Business Advertising page for more details.

GunShows-USA – Made in America 

Show listing submission form is located at the bottom of this page.

HOME PAGE BANNER SPACE:

Because this space is on the landing page (Home page) and above all other listings on that page, the advertisement is seen before any other listing.

COUPON INFORMATION

Banners with coupon links, we can make your coupon and link it to your banners or link your banners to your coupon page on your site, it is up to you. We can make coupons if you do not have them or a link to them (this is a free service).

We do not generate coupons for Free or Highlighted listings.


ANIMATION OR STATIC?

Animations are entertaining and that is what multitudes of viewers like to see.  A static advertisement can get the message across just as easily as an animated advertisement, but animations are just plain fun to watch.  Whether you choose a static ad or an animated ad is totally up to you, but remember, it is the viewer who you are trying to reach.

With attractive and/or entertaining advertisements promoters generally get a better viewer statistic.  Animation does take time (and effort) to design and set in motion, but the cost is worth it if that animation generates more viewers and brings more people to your shows.

*Animation is $50 per advertisement regardless of the size of the ad because, as mentioned before, they take time and effort to design, set in motion and keep in motion. Rotating show banners are considered animated, and will be designed using the basic banner sizes – Small, Large, and Extraordinaire.
The state page rotating banner is not considered a basic show banner.

DISCOUNTS & LATE FEES POLICIES:

Discount and Late fees policies on this page only apply to banner and highlighted listings orders which are not paid for in advance.

Pay your invoice by the due date and reap the benefit of discounts and avoid late fees.

New Discount policy: 
Invoices will automatically include a discount.

Invoice updates will apply to the original emailed invoice automatically, but an updated invoice will be emailed regardless.
New Late Fee policy 1.5%:
Late fees will begin to accumulate the day after the due date on the invoice and recur every 30 days after the due date on the invoice.
After 60 days, if the payment is not received all listings not yet paid for will be pulled and future listings will be denied until the past due amount and late fees are paid in full.
Payments via PayPal due dates are set at 15 days from the day the order was filled. If payment is not received before or by the due date, then late fee(s) will be applied to the invoice.

Invoices are made the day the order is filled. Additional orders added to the original invoice after the invoice was made will not extend the due date.

PAYING BY POSTAL SYSTEM:

New Discount policy: 
Invoices will automatically include a discount. However, if the invoice is not paid by the due date, the discounted amount will be added to the next invoice as an additional fee (reapplied discounted amount).

Invoices are made the day the order is filled. Additional orders added to the original invoice after the invoice was made will not extend the due date.


If the invoice is not paid within its time limit then the discounted amount will be added back into the bill and a late fee of 1.5% will be charged. A late fee of 1.5% will be added every 30 days from the date the invoice was made and future listings will be on hold after the first 30 days until the past due amount and late fees are paid. If the invoice is not paid within 30 days of the invoice date, your listing will be removed and billing will continue until past due and current amounts, plus late fees, are paid in full. Listings that were already paid for are not in danger of being removed.


Monthly clients must pay one month in advance in addition to past due amounts and late fees.

Partial payments and payment arrangements do not qualify for discounted rates and are subject to late fees.


REFUNDS & CREDIT


Canceled listings are either marked as canceled or removed altogether. Postponements of shows, after they have been published, are considered cancellations.

Overpayments will automatically be applied to any late fees and/new orders.

    • Some criteria for credits on published paid-listing cancellations include
      • extreme weather that destroyed the venue after the venue had been booked and paid for
      • venue has been shut down due to hazards developing after the venue had been booked and paid for
      • venue has been revoked due to paranoid venue owners who have decided that guns convince their wielders to kill.   

Promoters, when canceling a show, please be specific should you believe your cancellation falls under one of the above-stated criteria.

If you are canceling your ad space you are required to contact us before the last day of your purchased time or you will be held responsible for additional monthly charges, including any accumulated late fees.
