OGCA is a members only show. One must be invited. Figure I'll need to have all the things ready before figuring out that part. Not enough hours in the day...


m1a1fan,

I'm fairly certain I can get you an invitation.

I could also sponsor you as a member, and then you could make an entry in the annual display show. The next one is in May, so it's probably too late for that, but maybe next year?

Thanks David. As you noted, it will be a while escpecially since my designer is busy with retirement. Will reach out when the time comes. That is one show I've always wanted to go to. Not sure if it is because I know there is great stuff there (which I'm know there is) or if it is because I can't get in.

Only thing I can say for sure is it will be near impossible to measure up to PBI's display. I watched the Inland video and thought it was fanstastic. Even freeze framed the carbine parts where a trigger housing was shown. Interestingly, it looked finished, but the rear lug was not.

Just let me know when you're ready. I will be happy to get you in the door.

I would not worry too much about trying to measure up to a previous display. No matter what, an M1 Carbine display will be appreciated by many.
