DALLAS, TX --(Ammoland.com)- The Dallas Safari Club (DSC) convention and expo, Texas biggest showcase of hunting, sporting and outdoor lifestyle is set for Jan. 9-12 2014.

The event offers 2014’s first opportunity to shop for hunts with top outfitters from around the globe. Displays also include world-class sporting gear, firearms, art, collectibles, entertainment, seminars, auctions and more. Together, attractions cover the space of nearly nine football fields.

Open to the public, the expo will be held at the Dallas Convention Center. For registered attendees, additional events, galas, awards and fundraisers will be held at the Omni Hotel Dallas.
