Turkey Expo or gun show? Not all are from the State of PA.

And I don't know why a boycott?

this is what has been posted on dougs about it

Eastern sportsman and outdoor show in Harrisburg PA. One of the largest in the nation. Runs Feb 2-10 and attracts several 100 thousand visitors.

The promoter of it decided given recent events he would ban assault style rifle displays at the show. 181 Vendors have pulled out so far since the news broke with more being added every day. Too many obviously to list, but a lot of big names like Primos, Whitetail Freaks, etc, along with major manufacturers and organizations.

Here's a list of just speaker/celebrities so far that were scheduled to be there that pulled out.


The list is up[ to 202 out of around 1200 vendors.

I second that - its about time we as sportsmen and women stood our ground. Phase II - how about boycotting the federal government?
