About the trade show

The Ohio Gun Collectors Association (OGCA) started from the dream of one man, Miller Bedford. He sent out postcards in 1937 with 1 cent stamps to interested souls. Perhaps it was only natural that the simple, one penny announcement which spawned the world's largest and oldest assembly of firearms collectors would be generated in Ohio. Nowhere has the spirit of the early American pioneer, the legends and lasting footprints of the old frontiersmen been more deeply perpetuated than in this state named by Iroquois and Wyandotte hunting parties for its "Beautiful River."

It is a matter of record that 32 collectors responded to Miller Bedford's invitation, bringing along with them the prize pieces of individual collections. They assembled in Bedford's backyard and the meager accounts do indicate that a substantial trading session took place that very first day. For sure, overall enthusiasm was high enough to warrant formation of a permanent organization on the spot

So it was that from this acorn of an idea, this humble beginning, there was born an organization that would one day overflow virtually all existing exhibit space in the state. There is small doubt that a major stimulation through the ranks of those charter members was the wholesale opportunity to swap and sell old firearms, hopefully updating their own collections, ideally swinging at least a material profit in one fashion or another.
