Well, a couple of interesting articles have come out regarding gun ownership in hawaiii. First the Attorney General’s report on permitting and registrations is out. Outdoor hub has an interesting and somewhat surprising take on it. Finally, Civil beat has an article which interviews a bunch of local people on the number of gun registrations and features a prominent member of the SASH gun club and some friends at the HRA and LIFE.
Update: The Washington Times has an article which dissects Kauai’s increase in gun permits.
A couple of weeks ago we posted that Elmer Keith’s personal gun collection was going up for auction. The auction is now completed. The gun collection went for $1,905,458. Guns and Ammo has the whole story.
With the Gun Show coming up, we are posting some articles culled from the net about gun collecting and purchasing used guns.
Below is a great article from the NRA Museum. If you are new to gun collecting or just interested in becoming an arms collector, this article contains a lot of useful information. It discusses the different types of collections, condition, gun show etiquette and more.
It seems that a number of Elmer Keith’s guns are going up for auction on March 11-14 and March 13-16. This is a rare opportunity to own some of The Legend’s guns. I suspect the prices will not be described as “a bargain” after the fact, but it is certainly a unique opportunity. See the link below for details.
