NRA Convention, Day 2, Part 2…

As I said, some of the ‘fun’ things seen walking around…

Somewhere between $3-400,000 worth of Rifles

Cavalry Colt- $175,000 estimated sale price

Remington-Rand 1911A1, Serial Number 1!

The Thompson/Auto Ordnance Display
(note the signature above the pic of the WWII soldier with the Tommy Gun…
And the poster is SIGNED by Walter Hughes, who was the soldier in the picture!!!

Patterson Colt #3 Complete set in the original box- $450,000 estimated sale price

Colt Navy Serial Number 1- Complete set in the original box- $1,000,000+ estimated sale price

A group of us got together for dinner, and the manager of the restaurant told one of the group that they get ‘all’ the convention traffic, and the NRA folks were the nicest, most polite people they’d ever had in the restaurant…

An armed society IS a polite society!


NRA Convention, Day 2, Part 2… — 11 Comments

  1. With so many really expensive guns around and considering personal carriage of arms in the convention center is not allowed, were there armed guards? Or am I mistaken about the convention center rules?

  2. Here’s one for you.

    Between you, Lawdog, Phlegmmy, JayG, AD, Sebastian, and everyone else…can we get a picture of the knives everyone is carrying?

    If you’re not allowed to carry guns at the convention, I’m betting dollars to doughnuts every single one of you has a nice folder in their pocket. How about a “group picture” so to speak?

  3. DT- You’re welcome 🙂

    Matt- Same here!

    Andy- St. Louis PD, multiple officers 24/7 no “security” folks…

    Msgt- I’ll hit the group up this morning 🙂

  4. Please ask the manager to write his Mayor and let him know! Maybe they can revisit the new signs at the Metro stations greeting our commuters!
