REMINDER: This Thursday night is the meeting
How many people are usually at the meetings and what do most collect? Are most people U.S. and English Collectors? Civil War, WWI, WWII? Or is there a large variation? I collect mostly Finnish Rifles, Pistols, Bayonets and Tools, as well as South American and K98k Mausers, French MAS rifles, and FN-49. I have a little bit of everything else as well except Russian Arms and American Rifles other than one Garand. Trying to see if this would be a fit for me.

Good number of people but certainly enough seats for more attendees and guests. Large variation of era collectors, and many like you. Doors open at 7pm, to talk and look at displays before the presentation begins at 8pm. Here are some previous meetings:
