Mesquite Texas — The Gun Show Capital of America

Many would argue that Texas is the undisputed firearms capital of the world. If that is accurate, then Mesquite, Texas might have to be the gun show capital of the United States. There are several hundred gun shows in Texas during the course of the year, ranging from Market Hall in Dallas to a community recreation center in Dumas.
