In brief: Gun sales and growth at Carlisle Sports & Outdoor Nationals
Carlisle Events, the Cumberland County car show company, said gun sales will be part of its first outdoors and adventure show in September, called the Carlisle Sports & Outdoor Nationals, which continues to grow quickly.
"Our event is growing monthly, if not weekly and daily," spokesman Michael Garland said.
Reading-based Eagle Arms Productions, which operates gun shows around Pennsylvania, will run the show at the Carlisle Expo Center as part of the outdoor nationals, he said.
There was a strong interest in the outdoor nationals after the cancellation of the former Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show, which the NRA is replacing, Garland said.
"It's somewhat ironic the NRA show won't have gun sales," he said.
