There has been some discussion but, to date, no decision has been made. Still awaiting replies to questions we have asked of vendors.

That was the idea when we did the last one but it was struck down by the powers that be.

I know the calander would cost more to make ie. a "Wood Duck" calander copy then one page calander done before, and I know they were concerned about costs, but again I will say it, if you take pre orders and deposits you will know how many to produce and the PGCA will not get stuck with a bunch of extras that they have to giveaway. Just my two cents Eric

It would be easy to make one using the guns pictured on the home page during the course of a year.

Rich members that I have talked to want a repro of one of the older calendar, like the Wood Duck or something similar.

The LC Smith Collectors Association produces a nice one-page calendar every year. On the back in a history of LC Smith guns and definitions of grades. What's really amazing is that they those calendars away!

It would be nice to have a reproduction of a vintage calender that could be framed and put in the man cave but I think there were copyright concerns regarding the image used.

Most of that stuff is so old it's in the public domain. If there was any concern there wouldn't be all these reproduction gun catalogs floating around.
