Billed as “one of the largest gun and knife exhibitions east of the Mississippi,” the October 2009 Indy 1500 Gun and Knife Show started today, October 23, 2009 and runs through Sunday, October 25th at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, just northeast of the Indianapolis downtown sector. You can get passes for the individual days or three-day passes at the door and dollar-off coupons at your local gun shop or newspaper office. Indianapolis children under twelve get in for free when accompanied by an adult.
The exhibition brings all the latest in guns and knives to the South Pavilion at the State Fairgrounds, in Indiana‘s capital, Indianapolis. For over a quarter of a century, the Indy 1500 Gun and Knife Shows have been part and parcel of many Hoosier‘s way of life, providing items of interest for the safe enjoyment of your related hobbies, interests and professions.
Everything from antique cannons to samurai swords and their specialized scabbards to the latest thing in night vision laser guns is there for your enjoyment. Check out the new handgun grips and other fascinating accessories, marvel over the filagreed scroll-work of an antique revolver and meet members of the Marine Corps League.
When you visit this popular exhibition, you’ll find many chances to show your kid why it’s a good thing to learn about guns, knives and weapons, how to take care of them and how to use them safely. You’ll also find tons of experts to supplement your own information. For Hoosiers, especially fathers and sons, the art and understanding of weaponry is a natural extension of Indianapolis education, Indianapolis history and Indianapolis culture. The October 2009 Indy 1500 Gun and Knife Show this weekend at the Indiana State Fairgrounds is another opportunity to give your child a leg up in the fascinating universe of guns, knives and weapons, and the influence they continue to exert on human society.
