Spring Gun Show set for May 1 at fish and game clubhouse

The Courtenay and District Fish & Game Protective Association will hold a Spring Gun Show on Sunday, May 1 at the main hall from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Admittance is $5 for men 19 and over; women and youth are free.  Food and beverages will be available while you view the nearly new or gently used in sporting, hunting and some historical firearms and associated equipment.

It is a buy, sell and trade show with an assortment of nearly new to antique.  The show is a great opportunity to find a starting firearm for a novice hunter such as a son or daughter or grandchild.  More and more young people and women are expressing interest in the shooting sports and this could be the opportunity to find an economical firearm.

Several shows are held throughout the year on Vancouver Island. Anyone interested in gun show information can contact Rick McClure at 250-703-0223.
