The Gun and Blade Show is Coming to Abilene December 1st and 2nd

Just in time for Christmas the Silver Spur Gun and Blade Show is coming back to the Taylor County Expo Center Saturday and Sunday, December 1st and 2nd.

However, the silver Spur folks also invite some other vendors to set up as well, like handmade arts, crafts and jewelry. This way I can take my wife to the show as well.
