AGCA Fall Gun Show
Show Theme: Civil War Theme
Show Dates: October 11-12, 2014

Welcome to the Alabama Gun Collector's Association website.  The Alabama Gun Collector's Association began in 1954 by seven men with a vision of developing a group who could come together for discussion and trade of their shared interest in firearms.  Fast forward 60 years to today and the Alabama Gun Collector's Association is over 2200 members strong and growing annually.

The goal of the Alabama Gun Collector's Association is to have a place to come together and display and trade guns, weapons, accessories and memorabilia from our nations proud history.  A.G.C.A. members collect a wide range of weapons from our past and present and display and trade them at the shows.  The A.G.C.A. gun shows serve many purposes but mostly for the following:

  • Member Meeting & Fellowship
  • Member Collection Display's
  • Trade & Sales of Legal guns, weapons, blades, ammo,  accessories and memorabilia
  • Education for all interested
  • Remembrance for all those who served our country and all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and great way of life.

The Alabama Gun Collector's Association meets three times a year for two days, currently at the B.J.C.C. in Birmingham, AL, with a business meeting on the morning of the final day.  The A.G.C.A gun show meetings are open on Saturday and Sunday both to our members (at no charge) and to the general public (for a small door fee).

PARKING FOR THE FALL GUN SHOW may prove to be a problem for some.  Over 450 parking spaces located under the Interstate Highway, along 9th Av North, have been removed by direction of the State Highway Department.  The BJCC has identified 6 parking lots around the BJCC complex that are available for us to use during our Fall Gun Show.  Parking at these lots and the 3 parking decks is priced at $8.00 per day.
