Texas Gun Fest might be Austin’s best-kept secret.
The Texas Firearms Festival, hosted annually in the Austin area by The Truth About Guns, is a rare opportunity to try out a wide variety of high-end firearms. What’s more, you can do it at a flat rate of admission, without paying for ammo. Yeah, what’s not to love?
This year, the festival welcomed a variety of manufacturers, including Sig Sauer, Walther, and Bergara, and welcomed visitors with the slogan “come and shoot it.” Here are some festival highlights… but the long story short is, I had a spectacular time!
1. STI Guns
For me, primarily a handgun shooter, the biggest highlight of Texas Gun Fest was the chance to explore STI’s line of 1911 and 2011 pistols. Headquartered just north of Austin in Georgetown, TX, STI knows how to specialize but also offer a wide selection at the same time.
They manufacture exclusively 1911 and 2011 handguns, the 2011 being a double-stack and more customizable version of the traditional 1911. Within those two categories, STI offers a wide variety of models with all kinds of materials, shapes, sizes, barrel lengths, etc., chambered in either 9mm or .45ACP.
