    One of the better shows. The "newest" firearm you may see is a M-14/M1-A if you are lucky. Lot of neat displays.

    But the show is not anything like tanner.

    Best show of the year on Denver. An incredible collection of some
    Of the finest vintage guns available. Most under $100,000 with a few in the $250,000 plus range. Bring cash ��

    If you have any interest in vintage guns this is the place to be this weekend.

    I'd have to agree if your a gun guy that likes history this is a very cool show. Found a cheap k31 there once.

    A lot of the show is made up of displays by Club members (National Gun Collectors Association) of their collections.
    The displays can be entered for judging.
    Last year the M-1 Carbine history display took top honors, and I am hoping he sets it up again this year.
    Each year, something new catches my attention.
    It is worth seeing for the history. Start talking to some of the people and you will find a passion for the different firearms and truly in-depth knowledge.
    Rules of the Club don't allow black rifles, so you won't see the AR-15s and accessories.
    General rule is don't bring a firearm that you could buy in a sporting goods store today.
    Enjoy!
    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.

    The amount of $$$ sitting on some of the tables is overwhelming. In HS, I remember seeing on table with about 15 mil-spec Colt Cavalry SAA examples. They didn't have serial #1, but I think #12 and #18 were available.

    not really, most being sold by dealers is going to be rusted junk. The show is more display than a selling show like tanner.

    As an accumulator of older S&Ws I love going even if I don’t buy anything. When I have bought it’s because I knew what I was after and had a good idea of value.
