GUN TRADERS’ SUPERMARKET (Oct, 1955)
GUN TRADERS’ SUPERMARKET
You can get anything from a blunderbuss to a burp gun at this busy swap session.
ANY exhibition of guns, old or new, has a fascination for men of all sorts, from serious shooters and collectors to Walter Mittys who have never fondled anything more lethal than a cap pistol. The Gun Traders’ Market, a periodic event at Klein’s Sporting Goods Store in Elmwood Park, Ill., near Chicago, brings together a wide assortment of shooting irons and a large crowd of gun lovers from miles around. For those who only look, the trading and the traders are just as interesting as the guns. The event brings new customers, good will and lots of would-be Davy Crocketts to Klein’s.
