PIONEER VALLEY SPORTSMAN'S SHOW
The Pioneer Valley Sportsman’s Association is a group of avid fishermen, hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, parents and grandparents, that are dedicated to the preservation of fishing, hunting, and shooting sports. They also organize one of the largest sporting goods shows in northern Illinois.
The DuPage County Fairgrounds has been home to the PVSA Sportsman Show for over 40 years, one of the longest running shows on the grounds. The show follows very strict policies and procedures. There is always a police presence, and Association members patrol the show and grounds to make sure all Federal, State, and Local Laws are adhered to; including Mandatory Universal Background checks and applicable waiting periods on all Firearm sales.
With the recent tragedies in our world the Fair Association and the PVSA have had discussions on the types of items that are available at the show. Bump stocks and any devices that modify guns to automatic are Not Allowed. The PVSA has agreed that there will be no raffle, and no sales of AR-15 assault style firearms at the show.
Both the DuPage County Fair Association and Pioneer Valley Sportsman’s Association support common sense gun Laws that keep those that may harm someone from owning or accessing a firearm.
We are deeply saddened by the recent events and it’s our hope that solutions are found to prevent these tragedies in the future.
