The Crossroads of the West gun show returns to San Bernardino this weekend.

Held Saturday and Sunday at the National Orange Show, the collector’s convention offers gun owners and enthusiasts a space to buy, sell and trade firearms and other paraphernalia. Crossroads officials ask that personal guns brought to the show be unloaded before entering.

Loaded firearms and loaded magazines are not permitted.

“We welcome businesses,” said Councilman John Valdivia, whose ward includes the event center. “This is a good opportunity for businessmen and women. These are family-friendly events that I welcome.

“We’re so glad to get the garden shows, the trade shows. We welcome them with arms open.”

Tickets cost $12 and cover both days. Children 12 and under are free with a parent or guardian.

Gates open at 9 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday. National Orange Show Grounds are at 689 S. E St. in San Bernardino.

A Crossroads gun show is scheduled for the OC Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa later this month. The Ontario Convention Center, a regular host, has one scheduled for early February.

This weekend is Crossroads’ third rendezvous in San Bernardino. However, the show’s owner could not be reached for further comment.
