National Gun Day Display


Recommended Posts

I'll be setting up a display of US Military Rifle Grenades at the National Gun Day Show in Louisville March 7-8. Please come by an introduce yourself and take a look at my display if you can make the show.

 

Here's a real crappy picture of a test I did to see if I could get it to fit on the tables.

Thanks, I'm looking forward to it. The last time I set up a display at a gun show was in 2004 when the Garand Collectors Convention was in Louisville. It was a lot of fun and I've had the itch to do another one ever since.

That's an excellent looking display and I really wish I could be there to see it. Please post some close-up photos if you have any. Or at least do so after you set it up at the show in its final form. I did the same sort of rifle grenade display at the GCA show in Reno about 5 years ago and it was a lot of fun.

Is that Krag in that display? Hard to tell with the resolution (not a complaint) of the picture.

 

What your refering to is a French Berthier M1916 with a VB Launcher attached. The Berthier and VB Launcher was frequently issued to US Troops because of our lack of arms when we first became involved in WWI. I also have two excellent photos of US Troops using the Berthier in the Trenches with the display.

 

I'm hoping to talk my sister into taking some good pictures for me when I get it set up. She's got the equipment and the talent and I don't.
