Remington On Tour comes to DeQuincy

By Jason Belk - bio | email

DEQUINCY, LA (KPLC) - Nichols Dry Goods in DeQuincy had a special visitor on Friday - the Remington On Tour bus made a stop in Southwest Louisiana to display their newest firearms, ammunition and accessories.

It was an event that had many area outdoors men and women very excited.

"This is really cool, I've heard about it and this is awesome to see it," said Shawn Knapp, a hunting enthusiast and SWLA resident.

On the bus you can look at and hold Remington's newest models and even play an interactive hunting video game.

"They've got some awesome equipment in there, they really do. They've got some guns, knives. I mean it's got it going on," said Knapp.

For James McDonald, the man who drives the bus, his favorite part of the tour is interacting with people who enjoy the outdoors just as he does.

"Any time you get some people out looking at guns, there's fixing to be some stories and you're going to get pumped up for the season," said McDonald.

The Remington On Tour bus has made stops all over the nation, but the Southwest Louisiana stop has been one that has been circled on the calendar for quite some time.

"I was glad to see Southwest Louisiana on my schedule. I've been down here enough to know that these people here are really easy to talk to and they love the outdoors just as much as I do," said McDonald.

While stopping by and looking at the gear is exciting, DeQuincy was also proud to be chosen as a stop on the tour.

"Remington being the brand that it is, and the high quality, it's good to see that they're thinking about the little people by bringing this here for them to look at, ask questions about and just be involved with," said Knapp.

If you love hunting there may be no better place on four wheels to check out.

The Remington On Tour bus will be at Nichols Dry Goods in DeQuincy again on Saturday from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm.

    For the rest of today, it will be very nice to get outside. There will be plenty of sunshine and very warm temperatures. Highs will be in the lower to mid 80s! This will be one of the warmest days we’ve had so far this year! Later by this evening, temperatures will still be warm, but a few clouds will be increasing. Especially after sunset. This is ahead of our next cold front that will come through tonight. Tonight, there is a good chance we see some rain.
