To provide, encourage, and support a direct and continuing means for the collection, trade, sale and display of firearms and other associated items of historical and current interest.
In early 1972, a few Alaskan gun collectors met one evening in a vacant store on Spenard Road in Anchorage, Alaska in response to a newspaper ad asking that persons interested in organizing a gun show in Anchorage attend that meeting. Unfortunately, the night chosen was the same evening as the Ducks Unlimited Banquet and, as a result, the first meeting of what was to become the Alaska Gun Collectors, Inc. was not well attended.
Nonetheless, from that first meeting, an organization calling itself the Alaska Gun Traders was formed, the name being changed to the Alaska Gun Collectors Association, Inc. in the mid 1970s.
The AGCA held its first gun show in the Spring of 1972 at the old Alaska National Guard Armory on Jewel Lake Road. Since that time the AGCA has sponsored at least two or three gun shows a year.
For over twenty years, the AGCA has also organized and held its Youth Shooting Appreciation Day at which youngsters from age 12 to 18 are introduced to the various aspects of the shooting sports, and the importance of firearms safety. This free event is enthusiastically attended by 500 young people each year.
The AGCA financially contributes to Olympic shooters, high school and other rifle teams and shooting programs, veterans programs, Friends of NRA, and to other civic organizations.
Over the years, the AGCA has accumulated the largest and most extensive collection of Alaska commemorative firearms in the world. This collection has been exhibited at the Annual Meetings of the NRA in various parts of the lower 48.
