Meeting gun topics:

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

·       IZHMASH - Izhmash was founded in 1807 in the town of Izhevsk by the Russian Tsar Alexander I and has produced a variety of weapons under various names. - Its most famous product is the AK series of rifles, the first of which was the AK-47, the latest being the AK-74 and the 100 series.  It was developed in 1947 by Soviet Lt Gen Mikhail Kalashnikov, and soon became one of the most widespread weapons of the modern era.

·       Izhevsk Mechanical Plant - IZHMEKH (ИЖМЕХ) was a major firearms manufacturer founded in Izhevsk in 1942 for manufacturing small arms. After the end of World War II it continued producing firearms, both for military and hunting applications, and later high-tech weapons and civilian machinery. After the Dissolution of the Soviet Union the range of civilian products was greatly expanded, but firearms were still its major production. Baikal firearms can still be bought from Remington under the name Ranger. - On August 13, 2013, Izhmash and Izhevsk Mechanical Plant were merged and formally renamed Kalashnikov Concer

·       RCBS, Inc. was founded by Fred Huntington in 1943 in Oroville, California and later became one of the world's largest manufacturers of reloading equipment. The name RCBS is derived from the name of the dies the company was founded to produce: "Rock Chuck Bullet Swage." 

·       Inland Manufacturing - The Inland Manufacturing Division of General Motors was organized in 1922 and manufactured wood wrapped steering wheels. - M1 Carbine and M1A1 Paratrooper models that were built by the original Inland Division of General Motors from 1941 to 1945.

·       Weatherby, Inc. is an American gun manufacturer founded in 1945 by Roy Weatherby.

·       HECKLER & KOCH - The company was founded in Oberndorf, Germany, by Edmund Heckler and Theodor Koch in 1948 and is therefore free of associations with the Nazi regime.

·       ISRAEL MILITARY INDUSTRIES - Makers of the Uzi submachine gun, which was invented in 1948 by Maj Uziel Gal.

·       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.
