Oregon Arms Collectors, Inc. is a Non-Profit, Mutual Benefit Organization, which exists to bring its membership together to further the collection, preservation, historical education, fellowship, and enjoyment of arms and related accouterments and memorabilia.
Originally founded in 1955 by some of Oregon's most prominent citizens, our NRA affiliated collector club is the oldest in Oregon, and counts within its membership rolls some of the most respected and knowledgeable collectors in the Pacific Northwest.
Oregon Arms Collectors emphasizes the historical and aesthetic aspects of collecting, in a cordial and pleasant atmosphere of friendly and appreciative interaction with other collectors.
Covering a wide range of collecting tastes, our membership is involved in everything from Samurai Swords to Colt revolvers, from matchlocks and flintlocks to Luger pistols and M1 Garand's, swords to knives and bayonets, cartridges to field gun shells, and a wide variety of arms related accouterments and literature.
Our membership rolls include participants from all walks of life; from doctors to world-famous authors, community leaders to business men, from garden Nursery owners to Tool and Die makers. Our members all share a commitment to the furtherance of collecting and the enjoyment of our fraternal organization.
At least four times in the course of each year we publish our illustrated club newsletter. Members and writers contribute information and articles on interesting weapons, arms history, contemporary legal and political commentary, area show information, and other entertaining anecdotes. All members are encouraged to contribute to the publication for the good of the membership.
Most of our regular combination meetings/shows are held every 4th Sunday of the month during which time members are free to trade both interesting hardware and lively discussions. Please see Gun Show page for scheduled shows.
Our shows are held expressly for the enjoyment and interaction of our members. During these get-togethers members may trade among themselves as well as admire impressive collector's displays. Special shows are held on a regular basis with special themes or emphasis on interesting historical eras, specific arms types, or nationalities. Refreshments are available. All of our shows are open to the public and non-members are welcome to visit. Those interested in joining our organization are encouraged to approach any member for information.
Oregon Arms Collectors attempts to maintain the highest standards of ethical and legal conduct within a comfortable framework of friendly and educational interaction.
So please feel welcome to attend our shows, enjoy the many displays brought forth by our members, and talk to any of our members about their treasures.
