On November 3rd, 4th, and 5th I attended the Wichita Military Guns and Collectables Show at the Cessna Activity Center, 2744 S. George Washington Boulevard. For those of you that read this blog you know that I am a big supporter of this show, The was their best and biggest show in many years. Over 125 tables were sold, and many great items were offered to the public. The show is promoted by the Wichita Military Collectors Club and is conducted for the pleasure and enjoyment of their members.

Cliff represents one of the many Veteran’s Groups that attend the show to recruit other Veterans.
In addition to military vehicles and Veteran’s Groups, the Club also sets up different displays of members’ collections.

There was also a large display of WWII Japanese Army Weapons and Equipment. The displays change every show and are one of the favorite attractions of the show.
The show has a laid-back attitude and doesn’t use badges as everyone pretty much knows each other. Vendor tables are only $35 each, which is the lowest price of any show that I attend. If you are interested in buying or selling military collectibles this is an excellent way to expand your knowledge and learn about the hobby. The members welcome all levels of military collectors and are always willing to share their expertise and advice. The show is held twice a year in April and November and I have included the flier for the upcoming Spring Show. Hope to see you there!
