So, if you’re coming to the Rendezvous, and you own anything chambered in .45-70, you might want to bring it. Special Interest Arms is bringing their Gardner Gun and some other interesting stuff as well:
Not planning to run it (the Gardner Gun) for hours at a time, just burst, so no need to deal with water for it.
Going to need help getting it into the hotel after the range for the show and tell too.
Some one needs to follow with a camera, the looks on tourist faces as we wheel a Gardner Gun along the casino floor should be priceless!
I’m also planning to bring the 300 BLK Trecenti again and the new 9mm Novem bolt action. If you want to find out just how good your 9mm suppressor is bring it and the ability to put it on 1/2-28 threads. Eliminating the action noise really lets the suppressor work.
Probably bring the AK-47 FA and suppressed FA 9mm AR-15 too. Might even drag out my old .303B deer rifle for the long range targets.
I will try to get Brian to come out again and bring his De Lisle and other suppressors to demonstrate too. He’s been in the NFA game for decades and has a lot of interesting stories if you can get him to take time for a real interview. Hint, ask him about how you get a demo letter for a post-sample Mini-Gun.
And Anthony Welsch of LuckyGunner.com is bringing 1,500 rounds of cowboy .45-70 ammo:
I heard back from our purchasing folks today. It sounds like getting some 45-70 in bulk quantities shouldn’t be a problem so I’ll plan to ship 1,500 rounds or so west with the rest of the ammunition orders.
I’ll talk with hotel management and ask if they have any special requests for getting the Gardner inside. If some open carried AR’s at a Chipotle can create national news I can’t imagine what a Gardner on a casino floor would do!
I doubt Richard will want to run 1,500 rounds through his $24,500 floor sample. I doubt Anthony wants to ship any ammo HOME, so bring your Trapdoor Springfields, Marlin 1895’s and other guns!
