The following is a comment from a thread started late last year by DanLH:

Thanks, Dan
I should explain that I am pretty computer illiterate, that's why I have Fred post my photos to the forum.

I was at the gunshow in Souix Falls, SD today which was sponsored by the NRA. Many wonderful displays and one of the very best was a display of G&H rifles of Dan's. Wow if you ever get a chance to see it then do so. It was nice to meet and talk to Dan. I think I heard Dan say that he's has asked Fred to post a picture.
Although I did not buy any guns at today's show, that is not to say I wasn't tempted by the many many fine guns for sale. Of particular interest was M-70 magnum action rifles. You can go to many shows and not see any M-70's in 300 or 375 H&H and at this show there were at least 5 of them in 300 H&H. All reasonable priced. I will probably kick myself at some point for not buying one. Great show and fun to meet Dan

I am looking forward to posting pictures, but nothing quite compares to being there and looking at the exhibits in person. Knowing Dan, he probably let you pick up a rifle or two to get a better look at it.

Looking back through my e-mails, I found this from Michael Petrov in 2012

"Dan Hudson talked with me today and let me know that he will have a Sedgley
display this weekend at the Kansas City gun show and wanted to let you know.
He said for you to stop by and say hello."

I met Dan at that show. It has been a good friendship.

I saw it, and it was quite the nicely done display.

Beautiful display! I know how much effort it takes to build up such a collection, and put it all together into a nice display like that! Well done!

I made this an 8 foot display and then found out they only have 6' tables at that show, the director gave me an 8' spot and I had some plywood under the cloth to extend the table. This is the first time for this display and while I made up the rack and had the guns on it, then later I made sure the signs fit but until the show I didn't realize the vertical barrels went into the sign letters. So now I will be raising the side signs to clear the ends of the barrels but I don't think that is why I didn't win an award, there were 37 displays and only 10 awards. There were a bunch of really nice displays. Thanks to those who stopped to visit and make comments. And thanks to Bob Beach for his help.
Dan

?? Is the scope in the leather case shown with those superb Springfields from one of the rifles with a G&H detachable mount? Do you know the make and model of the scope, by chance? Is the leather case made by Heiser??

We don't even do awards or chose winners for our August 2 day Collector Gun Show here. We get about 30-35 displays, and we give those tables to the first 30-35 people who buy a trade table and want to do a display.
We've avoided awards as it tends to cause hurt feelings for those who feel they were overlooked. And so far those who do a display really like it this way. We usually fill up all the trade and display tables not long after the end of each year's show.

RWTF,
Both scopes go with the rifle just above them. The one in the center is a Lyman Alaskan in G&H mount and the one on the left is a real early Noske scope and mount. Both leather cases are G&H and so marked.
