Alabama Kentucky rifle show

Don't know if any of you guys are interested in this stuff but it really neat to see so many masterfully built guns. Lots of parts available as well.

Just a heads up for old timey gun nuts, lots of flintlocks, older percussion guns and reproductions;

3rd Annual Alabama-Kentucky Rifle Show
Rogersville, AL
Joe Wheeler State Park (800)544-5639
Show dates are Jan. 10th at noon on Thursday for setup.
Friday the 11th from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM and Saturday the 12th from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM

Last time I looked they still had rooms at the lodge but they are going fast. Google Joe Wheeler Lodge.

I thought about taking my Kibler kit with me to show off but I am afraid if someone offered me a chunk of change for it I would go home without it and have to make another one.

I added some bling to it in the form of moldings and a toe plate.

I went to the show this morning, outstanding, I saw local friends and a lot of guys I had communicated with on the net but never seen in person. So much stuff to see one get overwhelmed and glosses over some of the displays.

I got to see and original Samuel Hawkens rifle and a rare one indeed. The Lady at that table was very interesting to talk to and said the rifle cost more than a house.

The crowd was large this morning, this is a good thing as we want the guys who put it on to at least break even and hopefully make a small profit.

Sounds like a good time was had by all. Our local club, Fort Osage Muzzleloaders puts on a small show.  One thing I've noticed about the club and show, a lot more grey hair than dark hair. Hopefully the few young uns will continue to carry the torch.

I know what you mean, Giff!  Our Buckhorn Skinners have the same challenge, but we also picked up some younger members - who seem to be shooting better than the old guys!  We had a work party not too long ago and the youngest guy there was 61!  Eric, have a good time at the show!  We're having our holiday party and I won't be able to make >:D (lol)!
