Reno/Sparks, NV (PRWEB) January 12, 2012
America’s elite engravers and custom gunmakers are headed to John Ascuaga’s Nugget Hotel in Reno/Sparks, NV, to share exclusive examples of their wares at the 2012 edition of the popular Firearms Engravers & Gunmakers Exhibition.
The annual event, now in its 28th year, is a joint effort of the American Custom Gunmakers Guild (http://www.ACGG.org) and the Firearms Engravers Guild of America (http://www.FEGA.com). Their theme this year: “Reward Yourself: Isn't It time for a Custom Gun?”
With its lineup of talent and displays of craftsmanship, there’s little wonder why those in the industry call this, “The Greatest Assembly of Custom Guns and Engraving in America.”
In addition to ACGG and FEGA members, select exhibitors from The American Bladesmith Society and the Knifemakers Guild will also be featured. For an exhibitor list, visit http://www.ACGG.org/events/2012-exhibitors.
The Jan. 20-22 dates for the Firearms Engravers & Gunmakers Exhibition are concurrent with the Wild Sheep Foundation’s “Sheep Show,” the largest mountain hunting convention under one roof. Attendees to the Firearms Engravers & Gunmakers Exhibition will receive discounted admission to the “Sheep Show.”
Admission cost for the ACGG and FEGA exhibition is $20 per person per day and is paid at the entrance. Hours are noon to 9 p.m., Friday; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. A “Banquet, Awards and Auctions” event is scheduled for Saturday evening.
Free seminars will be offered on Monday, Jan. 23, the day following the exhibition.
