The 2016 SHOT show was a huge success as always! The show was held on January 19-22 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas NV. Here are a few “bullet points” to recap:



  • We introduced our new line of 2016 Turnbull 1911’s. They were a big hit among the crowds. This year we produced updates to the Government, Government Heritage, Commander, and Commander Heritage 1911 product line.  All new guns now come standard with beaver tail grip safety, checkered front strap and adjustable tritium night sights.
  • Over a thousand people came to the booth to sign up for the Turnbull Giveaway!  We are raffling off a $1000 gift certificate and a new TAR 15 for free.  The raffle is set to take place on May 31st 2016. Don’t miss your chance to sign up here!
  • We had Lou and Theresa Tuminaro, stars of The Outdoor Channel’s “The Gunfather”, signing autographs and greeting people.  Lou and Theresa are very nice people and do an excellent job with their tv program.
  • Doug Turnbull was one of the biggest stars at our booth.  As the founder of our company, people love to come up to Doug and talk about their experiences, guns they have and guns we have restored for them. In addition, Doug was able to offer advice to a lot of people who came up and asked him specific restoration questions.

We had a great turnout and the show was a great success.  SHOT Show is one of the biggest and most recognizable shows of the year and we are already looking forward to being back again next year!
