bob's entire reference library is up for sale 40+ years!
have you ever heard people make reference to some folks forgetting more than youll ever know? well....that's bobski.
he's been collecting info for decades on: guns, gun related items, ammo, scopes, air guns, factory catalogs, nra magazines, odd and small gun companies, classics back to the turn of the century, you name it.
did you know he has every NRA magazine back to 1945???
he realizes he's never going to need it anymore. people don't have libraries anymore. they have smart phones.
young shooters just use google for everything now and have amazon deliver it. they lost the art of socializing and dealing in person. the art of haggling has been lost too.
people don't come to him for dated information or priceless wisdom. they use to. his reputation was built on it.
sadly, its in with the new out with the old.
but for the ones out there that enjoy flipping through aged classic ads and appreciate the art of advertising with printed media...this is a treasure trove of knowledge going on its way to the market.
in with the old!
so, he is going to break it down piece by piece or company by company. most of his items are in 3 ring binders in document protectors. none are complete. some years and months may be missing since he has already begun to sell some of it.
so now, he wants to include you in the rest of its sale.
the total items combined are too long to list here. it would take 50 pages. so, email or pm him for a list of whats available. he's still in the process of compiling it all, so if you want to beat others, just pm him and ask him to look for what you may specifically need. he'll go right to the library walls, climb his rolling ladder, pull it down and offer it to you.
you might hit pay dirt.
prices will be market price or lower.
so give him a call.
40+ years of gun shows, gun shops, old collectors homes, tag sales, he went to all of it. thousands of items. american and overseas ads. thousands of dollars of stuff.
for those that attended his shoot and hoots, you saw only a tip of it.
he's waiting to help pass on some history in hardcopy form to you.
give him a shout, now. good luck.
