AUSTIN (KXAN) — Annie get your gun, it’s time for the Texas Firearm Festival!

If you are a gun enthusiast or just want to see what local officers go through with firearm training, then you can check out the festival going on this weekend in Central Texas.

Joining us in the KXAN studio is Robert Farago, President of the festival.

One of the things the festival features is a SWAT team challenge involving local law enforcement. There will also be more than 20 firearm demonstrations.

You can even buy guns and gear at the festival. Proceeds from the event will benefit Veteran Outdoors and the 100 Club of Central Texas.

The festival kicks off Friday, Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. and lasts until Sunday at the Best of the West Shooting Range in Liberty Hill, Texas at 19500 W SH 29.
