TheGunBlog.ca — Gun retailers from across Canada and gun makers from about the globe have been setting up their show booths this evening for tomorrow’s opening of TACCOM, the Tactical & Competitive Shooting Sports Show.
Firearms Outlet Canada Inc., the organizer, is transforming the business with an exhibition that feels like a tiny version of SHOT Show, the world’s most significant trade expo for the firearm business.
TACCOM will have 100,00 square feet of displays focused on new guns and gear, generating it Canada’s very first and biggest show of its type.
Fred Pellegrino, the owner of Firearms Outlet Canada, is marketing the occasion on social media and holding it in the principal hall of a significant convention centre: the International Centre close to the Toronto airport.
In contrast to SHOT Show, which is reserved for firearm-business pros and media, TACCOM is open to the public, and open to all ages.
TACCOM differs from hundreds of public gun shows across Canada that take spot in neighborhood centres or hockey arenas, are not extensively advertised, and resemble flea markets promoting primarily old solutions.
TACCOM runs Sept. six-eight.
“It’s a mini-version of SHOT Show,” Pellegrino told TheGunBlog.ca nowadays as he walked the show floor for the duration of setup. “We’re equipped with employees, safety, anything — to take 20,00 persons more than the weekend, very easily.”
