This wasn't the "CES" or "Comic-Con" of guns and hunting, a certain aim of the recent NRA Meeting. This was a gun show through and through, but of a caliber I had yet to experience. The quality of guns at this show was astounding. Table after table were full of beautiful collector grade guns. Sure there were some antiques that showed their age, but for the most part those that were in excellent condition far surpassed those that were presented based solely on their age. This is a gun show put on by volunteers belonging to the Colorado Gun Collectors Club and they clearly put in a lot of hard work for a show this impressive. There were also tables of tack, polearms, Native American artifacts, firearms curios, everything related to the Western-era, gun parts, and items from nearly every military engagement in which the U.S. has participated.
