for checking our Show
is no better way to truly enjoy our hobby, than to attend a "quality" Antique Arms Show. Besides being able to view
and actually handle many high quality artifacts, the collector
is able to rub elbows and discuss their interests with most major dealers,
authors, and fellow collectors. The amount of experience
and knowledge gained at a weekend show, is worth not only
the price of admission, but the airfare, food and lodging. It
cannot be replaced by the serious collector. Besides the
antique arms venues, Civil War shows are almost always packed
with items ranging from the 1750's through the Indian Wars, (
1898 ). If you are unable to travel, check your local papers
for a local gun show. Although many of the local shows also supply
modern arms to hunters and sportsman, there are always some antiques
to be found.
Most collectors know the
best shows. We cannot attend all of them, but can certainly
recommend the ones that we feel are the best:
of what you hear about the strict rules and hard floors, this
is hands-down the best All-Antique Arms show in the world.
