In 1998, the Annual Display Show Committee was formed to create the first annual competition which is now recognized as one of the very best display shows in the nation. Thousands of dollars, beautiful bronzes and other prizes are awarded each year to the best exhibits. For those who display, it is pride of ownership, and a desire to pass on knowledge.
OGCA continues to expand its educational opportunities inviting featured guest speakers, instructors, living history reenactors and fellow firearm collector organizations such as The Winchester Arms Collectors Association, Ruger Owner & Collector Societies and many others. OGCA also sponsors book signings by member authors, and is duly proud that over 100 of the best firearm-related books have been written by members. We also hold an Annual Recognition Banquet each spring.
