Big Top Promotions
who are we?
The seeds of Big Top Promotions were sown decades ago when the founders experienced a life changing event. Credible threats made against their lives by dangerous parties were confirmed by law enforcement, and they were given warnings and information regarding their safety. (Click below to open a section that tells the rest of our story)
Realizing their vulnerability and tiring quickly of living in extreme fear and paranoia they sought out ways to improve their safety and ability to self-defend. They found to their dismay that there were very limited resources where the average citizen could get educated and make informed decisions. Thus, the idea of creating a friendly professional environment that specialized in self-defense weapons staffed with non-commission personal shoppers assisting and educating customers was born. Originally a small family business, it has grown significantly over the years adding one satisfied customer at a time, becoming the largest of its kind in the northwest. The principles of a large diverse selection offering the best choices, the very best service and employing a transparent efficient checkout have remained constant.
What can you expect at a Big Top Sale? Picture the selection at a big box sporting goods retailer, then think bigger. Much bigger. Then add in multitudes of knives, plentiful ammunition in various calibers, and a huge selection of accessories. Now you’ve got it. More guns, more knives, more ammunition.
So much more than sales
Our shows are lively and upbeat. You’ll enjoy music and positive employees. Our staff loves connecting people to the right firearm and sharing their knowledge
Handling firearms is a serious business. Even unloaded, they are due respect at all times. At our shows you can expect only the safest display and handling of firearms
Philosophy of use
Home defense? Concealed carry? Long range target shooting? Plinking at the range? There are so many firearms that work best in each. We are here to help you.
Our goal is to help you find what you want, what fits your needs and to provide product education. High pressure sales? No way. Our staff does not work on commission.
What Drives Us
Our mission has always been the same. We strive to provide gun sales that provide the greatest selection of what you’d expect a guns sale to have- guns, knives, ammunition and accessories. As gun enthusiasts ourselves, we were frustrated with gun shows that provided a little of that. Our business was founded on the idea that we would provide the greatest selection of guns, knives, ammo, and accessories and leave the rest to the flea markets. We continue to grow this mission every day.
Come See Us!
We have sales throughout Western Washington. You will find a sale nearly every weekend of the year. You can wait for a sale near you, or you can take a short drive and visit us in a city near you. Either way, we’d love to see you!
