Crossroads of the West weekend gun show opens in St. George

ST. GEORGE – The Crossroads of the West gun show will be held at the Dixie Center St. George, 1835 S. Convention Center Drive in St. George, Saturday and Sunday, offering something for everyone from families to hunters to collectors, including education, gun sales, ammunition, permitting classes and applications, and a variety of vendors.

People may bring their own guns to the show – provided that no loaded firearms or magazines are permitted in the show, according to its website.

One of the main attractions to the show is ammunition that can be hard to come by in other places.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars will be in attendance and the show always “shows a lot of gratitude for our veterans,” event organizer Jeff Templeton said.

Most gun show contributors are retired or make a business of showing their guns, Templeton said. The gun show is a great time to learn about the history of guns, he said.

People will also be able to fill out necessary paperwork and take the test to obtain concealed carry permits.

St. George has been a venue for the Crossroads show since 1985.

    Oh this is going to be real interesting with all these anti gun whack jobs and their same old whining guns kill people guns kill people

    • Koolaid January 23, 2015 at 10:09 am

      Old whining guns kill people. Support Obama in taking those old whining guns

      • ladybugavenger January 24, 2015 at 9:01 pm

        Koolaid, you shouldn’t go near the gun show :/ you know, for your own safety.

  • Schwa January 23, 2015 at 8:34 am

    Not Really. They do this show about 6 months or so. Never seems to be an issue with the locals, even if some are anti gun.

  • Aaron Judd January 23, 2015 at 8:54 am

    Guns can’t kill anyone without a “whacko” behind it. Sadly these whack jobs aren’t arguing for stricter gun control. Sadly every major massacre in my lifetime was at the hand of a mad man with a gun. If there was even a chance that any of there lives could have been saved because there were no guns available to them than I think most people would agree stricter gun laws would only be a benefit. I think most people who kill with a gun wouldn’t have the same courage to kill if their options were like a knife and whatever else. Australia banned guns after a major massacre and since have seen drastic changes in the amount of people murdered, and children killed. If you think these people are whack jobs you may be missing some really interesting affects that have occurred when gun ownership are under strict laws and guidelines. Makes me see that the honorable old west ways of gun-slinging need to change to meet current need of our current nation.

      There haven’t been enough deaths and damages caused by home made bombs? Get rid of the guns, people will get creative. I would rather take my chances being shot by a gun than victimized by someone’s home grown experiment in destruction.

      • Free Parking January 23, 2015 at 3:20 pm

        Sage yeah I don’t have any guns at the house all I have is 3 rocket launchers 4-bazookas 3 fully armed nuclear missiles on a launch pad under a fake barn 2 fully loaded f14s in a fake garage I have an Aircraft Carrier fully armed and on standby in Lake Mead hidden into the rocks. My yard is surrounded by motion detectors and heat sensors and Bouncing Bettys and claymore mines and guarded by a herd of rabid Gerbils I have a war room under the trailer connected to NORAD I have 3 mini cannons with 65.000.000.000.000.000 rounds of ammunition but I’m strictly against hand guns..

  • 1911 fan January 23, 2015 at 9:04 am

    So if guns kill people….how do so many people make it out of a gun show alive?

    I have been an avid shooter and firearms collector for well over 40 years. I own a considerable collection of a variety of firearms. In all the time I have owned guns, not one of my firearms have ever shot anyone. Still waiting…..

    • Koolaid January 23, 2015 at 10:11 am

      That guy who shot his girlfriend, her daughter and himself was an avid gun person. Homeboy, too.

      • mo ferguson January 23, 2015 at 1:16 pm

        KOOLAID, yup he was an “avid gun person”. You are correct. BUT, that gun didn’t shoot itself, did it? “Homeboy”????, I can tell you’re from the 80s-90s era. Time to grow up and get into the present, “homeboy”. Hahahaha…

        • mo ferguson January 23, 2015 at 1:19 pm

          KOOLAID….I keep telling you to replace the “KOOL” part of your screen name to NOT. It would explain a lot. Hahahahaha……

          • Moveback7spaces January 23, 2015 at 4:09 pm

            Shut up MO. KOOLAID has friends here. He’s our Koolaid we look forward to his off the wall comments. He’s entertainment and keeps the comment section interesting regardless of how idiotic some of those are… you should change your name to STUPID MO that would help explain who you are. ha ha ha ha ha

          • BeSelectiveInYourComments January 23, 2015 at 5:47 pm

            Those that enjoy Kookaid’s remarks are the same people that love to see a nice bloody car wreck. He is a kook, his comments are lame, and I’d say he needs to get a day job. I don’t work full time to keep his lazy … paid to sit around and snarkily comment on every single article on this site. Grow up and get a job. He was likely the class clown everyone feigned liking.

          • mo ferguson January 26, 2015 at 8:18 am

            KOOLAID and MOVEBACK7SPACES, are one and the same person. NOTLAID thinks he is so slick……well maybe as slick as snot on a doorknob. Hahahahahaha….

  • Burton January 23, 2015 at 12:26 pm

    Your right! And did you see the St George news article “TGIF guide to the weekend” photo!!!?? It’s a silhouette of an adult male holding one of those evil guns!? Poor little clay pigeons will never stand a chance! And we should boycott Wal-Mart for selling shot gun shells and targets (that are taxed heavily by the way). I suggest all you anti gunners show Wal-Mart who is in charge and stop shopping there in protest. All you 2nd amendment are hypocrite and ignorants.

  • Burton January 23, 2015 at 12:37 pm

    Maybe we could all hold vigils and funerals for the little clay pigeons after those horrible gun crazies murder them!? I’ll bet they are conservative republicans who would enjoy that kind of thing. Bastards! You anti gun peep are a bunch of buffoons.

    • Koolaid January 23, 2015 at 5:23 pm

      Fundraiser for those defenseless clay pigeons

      • Mesaizacd January 24, 2015 at 4:09 am

        Fundraiser for MESAMAN he needs a hug. LOL.!

  • Thomas January 23, 2015 at 3:35 pm

    I’m just so glad that guns don’t kill stupid people only. Who would then be the tree hugging, overly hot, leaf eating, wacko, leftist, anti gun nuts?

  • Just Curious January 23, 2015 at 4:40 pm

    Are all you people drunk or just totally off your meds?

    • mesaman January 23, 2015 at 6:14 pm

      I like your “A” or “B” questionnaire. Guaranteed to bring the data you need for your assumptions. Are you on “A” food stamps, or “B” welfare. Kinda makes you emotional, doesn’t it?

      • Just Curious January 23, 2015 at 8:38 pm

        Neither. But I’m having a laugh reading the gun folks more or less arguing with themselves. Sounds more like the kind of thing that happens in a dive bar. Except that there aren’t many dive bars around here.

        • One For The Rosd January 24, 2015 at 4:01 am

          Oh well then it seems your well acquainted with dive bars after you sounds like you know all about them

          • Just Curious January 24, 2015 at 10:52 am

            Oh, man, would be great to have a few good dive bars around here. The jack Mormons would support them fully.

      • One For The Rosd January 24, 2015 at 3:58 am

        Your all concerned about A and B wow your kind of emotional aren’t you.. You better get some rest you must be exhausted after having a thought

  • arrowone January 23, 2015 at 4:54 pm

    Cars kill more people than guns yet we still go to car shows.

    • Koolaid January 23, 2015 at 5:51 pm

      People kill people, yet people keep reproducing more people

    • GI JOE January 23, 2015 at 8:35 pm

      Nice one arrow that was awesome…more people die from cigarette cancer than hand guns and they keep smoking and complaining about handguns. LOL.

  • WeloveKoolaid January 23, 2015 at 8:24 pm

    Shut your pie hole beselective. AKA MO FERGUSON I’m tired of paying taxes just to support you while you sit behind your keyword and act like an idiot. Get a life

    • mesaman January 23, 2015 at 9:46 pm

      So, can I conclude that you think your taxes are their only source of income? It that is so they are probably living with the homeless.

      • One For The Rosd January 24, 2015 at 1:01 am

        Really..? Talk about lame duhhhhhhhh

  • real life January 23, 2015 at 9:53 pm

    There are three G’s that really seem to get locals fired up here in St. George. God, Guns, and Gays.

    • koolaid January 24, 2015 at 5:50 am

      The theme of a Utah Republican convention.

  • Burton January 24, 2015 at 12:28 am

    For anyone who would like to donate to the “helpless clay pigeon fund” please send your money to 1~800~iamaliberal. Please, we have operators standing by! With your help not another one of these senseless clay pigeon shootings will go on.

  • koolaid January 24, 2015 at 5:51 am

    Psssst…. Watch out for Obama. He’ll take your guns.

  • H. Wang January 24, 2015 at 10:25 am

    Save your money. This gun show is awful. It always has been and always will be. You can see better selection at any local gun store, perhaps even Wal Mart.

  • Kind of sick, ain't it? January 26, 2015 at 8:58 am

    Looks to me like we have one poster here, using different names, who is sitting around arguing with himself. Talk about needing to get a some kind of a life. . .

    • Evil Twins Mommy January 27, 2015 at 2:34 am

      Tell us all about my evil twin

  • Moveback7spaces January 26, 2015 at 9:33 am
