2019 Pacific Airgun Expo
« on: January 18, 2019, 01:43:19 PM »
The 2019 Pacific Airgun Expo in 3 months: April 13-14 2019 at the Eldorado County Fairgrounds
The web site is up and running (https://www.pacificairgunexpo.com) with this year's flyers linked for printing and the site is ready to take your table reservations and attendee ticket sales.  As before, the free shopping cart software is a bit clunky, seems like after every entry you have to hit 'go to cart' again, but if you stick with it through a few screens you'll come to the credit card or Paypal screen.  If you have any trouble give me a call 707-337-9410

As in previous years please keep in mind this is your show, not 'mine'.  By 'your' I mean western states airgunners.  I am not a professional show promoter.  I am an airgun enthusiast, web developer, and gunstock carver and I do this out of love and support of my favorite sport.  And, our market is small, there's no big money for me to make at this.  What I do is secure the facility, pay for it, see that all the legal elements are in place, provide the web site, and run an ad in the Sacramento Bee (which is far and away the best advertising I do...but your efforts online bring good results too).  I also make several driving trips around the greater Sacramento area and the I-80 corridor delivering flyers to gun shops and shooting ranges.

If you have a vested interest in the growth of our hobby/sport in decidedly un-gun friendly California, and if you want a full show to meet new friends and buy cool new stuff, you must be pro-active.  I can not by myself and with limited funding do some kind of spectacular marketing blitz.  It's up to all of you to post on your social media, chat forums, and put flyers up at your local gun club or sporting goods store.  We're a small community, and we're in this together.

There is lots of new information on the web site; I encourage you to peruse it, but the most important things to remember are: 1) we can not shoot at the fairgrounds.  The police have made that very clear.  It is against city ordinance and fairground policy.  There is a shooting range just five miles away (about a 12 minute drive) if you must shoot.  And 2) the other important thing is we will once again have a State of the Industry meeting (ok call it a party) at the Placerville Brewery right across the street from the fairgrounds Saturday evening.  It's a no-host everything :-)  Food and drink are on you. Not that I'd turn down a free beer :-)

There will be a few more notices coming your way as we get closer.  Call or write with questions.  See you at the Pacific Airgun Expo!  I can't wait!

Image 9373 from 2017 looks pretty good...

I saw a few friends and acquaintances from that year. Didn't see any pics of my ugly mug tho. None of Oprah either.
Might just go again this year, I'll pick you up Frank.
Buncha BB guns that I don't get to shoot as much as I like. Building duck boats now that I'm "retired".
