Meeting gun topics:

·       For show and tell, if you have any firearms manufactured by the following:

·       EMF Company, Inc.  The cowboy was king in 1956 and Early & Modern Firearms, Inc. (EMF) was founded to supply the demand for the guns seen in the movies and on television. At the time Colt had stopped production of single action revolvers and declined to resume production. EMF became a major distributor, and then manufacturer, of the Great Western , the first reproduction of the famous Colt Model 1873 SAA.

·       Navy ArmIn 1956 when Navy Arms started, no other gun manufacturer built the classic designs of their pasts. Now, Colt makes Colt replicas. Now, Winchester makes Winchester replicas. Now, Smith & Wesson makes Smith & Wesson replicas. Now, Remington makes Remington replicas.

·       Blaser Jagdwaffen GmbH.  It was founded in 1957 by Horst Blaser, developing the drilling Blaser Diplomat.

·       1957 the US adopted a new rifle the M14.  To accommodate the new 7.62 NATO round, the US developed a version of Garand’s 20 year old M1, with fully automatic fire and a larger magazine.

·       Chiappa Firearms is an Italian firearms manufacturing company based in Brescia, Italy. It was founded in 1958 by Ezechiele Chiappa.

·       A. Uberti, Srl. Aldo Uberti (d. 1998) founded his company in the foothills of the Italian Alps in 1959 to recreate long-obsolete but iconic firearms from the days of the American West and the U.S. Civil War.

·       1959 first M16 delivered to US army. 

·       1960 milestone in the history of Colt happened in 1960, when Colt introduced the AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, based on the design by Eugene Stoner. It was followed shortly thereafter by the M16 military full automatic version. The involvement of the US in Vietnam again put heavy demands on Colt to supply arms to the troops.

·       Century International Arms  an importer and manufacturer of firearms that is based in the United States. The company was founded in 1961 in St. Albans, Vermont, with offices in Montreal. In 1995 the company headquarters and sales staff moved to Boca Raton, Florida and to Delray Beach, Florida in 2004.

·      Glock GLOCK KG is founded by engineer Gaston Glock. The company produces a variety of plastic and steel parts.

·       Have anything non-firearms related to share? Got a great knife that you just picked up, an air-rifle or Pistol, a new tactical flash light or red-dot scope? The club always enjoys seeing this as well.
