What to do with a massive amount of old gun catalogs?. Cleaning out the warehouse I have many bankers boxes of gun catalogs. Most are old, European gun catalogs, Spanish, Italian. Even American makers that sell in Europe.

Any ideas?

They would sell on EBay for sure. I would be interested in anything LC Smith related.

Good luck!

John,
You could donate the German ones to the German Gun Collectors Assn., they would be very good research material. The GGCA is a 501(c)3 and there might be tax advantage for the donation. If you decide to make a donation, Larry Schuknecht at Dutchman Wood Works ( www.dutchmanwoodworks.com) is the caretaker of the research material.

Love to have the time to pick out individual catalogs for certain requests. But I am now 67 so limited on time. I have one fellow that I spoke with me and has an interest in all. Keep you posted.

Thanks for the tips


John

Burn about half of them, John. The the rest will become collector's items...Geo

See if Cornell Publicatiosn wants them. They may put them to very good use, making the information easily and cheaply available to all.

Or keep doing what you've been doing. I bought something or other from John a few years ago and he included a very nice Purdey catalog as Lagniappe. Nice gesture I thought...Geo
