Over 1100 people came through the doors of the doors of the Cranbrook Curling Center on Saturday, May 23 and almost as many on Sunday for the fifth annual Kootenay Gun Show. The show, previously held in Kimberley, moved to Cranbrook this year. Exhibitors from as far away as Swift Current, SK, Vancouver Island and many from Alberta offered guns for sale, reloading supplies, books, leather goods etc. and a big display of WW 2 deactivated machine guns. Surprise visitors to the event were none other than Federal Minister of Justice Peter MacKay, along with MP David Wilks.
