There’s a small show in town this weekend and I secured one table to sell a few guns and misc. items from my personal collection. My wife will be out-of-town and I need something to do :)

It’s been a few years since I’ve been a ‘seller’ at a gun show… my wife used to be a distributor of gun cleaning products and we did many shows in years past.

I figure I might as well spend the weekend jaw-boning at the gun show with a bunch of like-minded (aka Biden-hating) patriots with common sense!

I’ve been looking through my collection and intend to sell some of the guns I don’t shoot much… and also sell some gear I no longer use… to make room in my shop. Maybe a few items will sell, who knows. Obviously depends on how I price the items.

I’ll also put some or all of these on our NGF marketplace tomorrow once I snap some photos.

tentative list

  • a high quality (made-in-Iowa by CMM Shooting Sports) brass catcher… designed for pistol shooting (I used to use it when I shot bullseye matches)
  • a SW Model 547 9mm 4” sq. butt revolver (a rather rare bird… less than 4,000 were made 1980-85) This may be hard to sell unless a SW collector happens by.
  • an HK VP9 9mm pistol
  • another unique one… a 4” stainless Taurus M741 in .32 H&R magnum
  • three or four other misc. handguns and rifles TBD once I finish going through the gun room

here’s the link to the show in case you want to make the trip to Cedar Rapids, IA!
