We'll be at the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center Complex this weekend for the Alabama Gun Collectors Association Gun and Knife. Generally 600-800 Tables.

The show presents a Military Theme this go round to honor our Veterans. Hope to see you there!
Some Displays from last year's show:








Alasaka's Arisaka's Used by Russia, they weren't Russian marked, just examples of the Arisaka's they used.


The Olde One went all Gangsta' in the Hood with his Japanese Cavalry Weapons and Associated Equipment display...

His esteemed Honor, all Hail to him, Awe Hell!



CrazyJapaneseCop's NVA Display

You might want to get to the BJCC early tomorrow for setup. Big concert tomorrow night, Elton John. With his equipment trucks and buses and such, not to mention the public, parking will be at a premium. There is also another, Winter Jam, Sunday night that is likely to snarl packing up after the show. Folks usually start lining up after Church for it. See ya'll this weekend. Trey

Not a lot of stuff that I couldn't live without as yet, that I could see, I did see this:


After researching it, it looks like TheOldeOne had it in 2007 (referred to it as a 10th series). Glad it made its way back. Nice 8th series, matching, mummed, bit of history. A Charles Klaeysen died in 2011, in Winter Haven Florida. Wonder if it was his?

In all a great show, saw old friends, made some new ones, chatted, haggled, schemed, ogled and traded to our little heart's content. I picked up some Seabee Vmail with pinup art, an hourglass bayonet with # on tang, a fireboat flag, and a fairly sizeable display award (for Birmingham). Japanese stuff was pretty slim at this one. Some was there, but not a lot and not much totally remarkable. Prices were high for modern stuff, the average SKS bringing more than the matching mummed - newish 8th series...500 rounds of .22 LR running $60-$100, just insane. I saw $75 and $150 flashlights, just crazy...

Some of the AGCA Displays...

Very Nice SeaBee Display:


CrazyJapaneseCop's Japanese Display




Alsaka's Phillipine Slam Fire shotgun Display


My Military Rifles of Japan display.










I think this was 3 Hots and a Cot - Veterans Assistance Program's - Display


Some of the Military Vehicles that were there.
