Oh, shoot! Did you miss the gun show?
The Prairie Winds Community Center was host to a huge gun show this past weekend, organized by Western Nebraska Gun Shows LLC, owned by John Erickson of Bridgeport, JB Walker of Arthur, and Stefani Thompson of Hildreth, Nebraska.
Thirty vendors from Nebraska and Colorado set up booths in the gymnasium. Ready to answer questions, sell weapons and ammunition, or provide repair and reloading services, the merchants were pleasant and seemed very pleased with the large turn out. There were an array of other unique items offered, such as brass jewelry, candles and leather goods. Over 1,200 people attended during the two-day event, in what proved to be a welcome economic boost to the community. While mostly an older crowd, there were several children there, wide-eyed with excitement.
Susanna Batterman’s Country Catering provided meals for the hungry crowd during the event and said, “It was a very enjoyable weekend. We received many positive comments on the friendliness of our community, the community center staff, and folks were pleased with the meals we provided.”
