It's called a "Gun & Knife Show" but there is a lot more to it than that!

Nothing quite compares to the ambiance of a gun and knife exhibition, with its rows of sellers displaying their goods on tables and booths positioned all over the place.  Each claiming to have what you're searching for. They'll be selling surplus army equipment, firearms, ammunition, hunting gear, memorabilia, and more!

The Army Surplus section was perhaps my favorite part. The history is so rich, and it all fits together. From mess kits and thermoses to survival manuals and ammunition containers. Every object has a story.

Gun & Knife Show

You know why I think collecting army surplus stuff is so cool? It's got a ton of history and nostalgia behind it. I mean, think about it, these items have been used in actual wars and other significant events. Plus, a lot of this stuff is super practical and useful. You know how the military has to have everything top-notch, so the gear and clothing they use is built to last. It's perfect for outdoor activities like camping and hunting. And let's not forget the tactical and self-defense aspect of some of this stuff.

Pope Creeks Shows presents the Quad Cities Gun and Knife Show! This Saturday and Sunday, January 14th & 15th at the Mississippi Valley Fair Grounds in Davenport.
