COMING IN MAY 2015 New and second location at the Douglas County Fairgrounds for our Colorado Militaria Show on 30-31 MAY, from 8:00 A.M. to 4 P.M.. There will be other concurrent events on the same weekend, and we can expect many new buyers coming to see our show. Furthermore, we will have a new component to the show – a military vehicle and vehicle parts swap meet. Now is the time to think about pulling out your military vehicles and extra parts for selling and swapping.
APRIL 2015 – JEFFCO Location Thank you all, loyal Vendors and Buyers for continued recommendations for making our show all the better. We also thank all for helping to grow our show; with many new and returning faces.
MORE TABLES – Since the JAN show, we asked for, and were approved to add 15 new tables. We have therefore, updated the table layout, have re-numbered the tables, and have kept nearly all Vendors in the same location. Additionally, and by the recommendation of many, we have implemented and set aside a section of twenty-two (22) tables to be allocated as [“Day of Show tables”].
KITCHEN – The kitchen is planned to be open for the 19 APRIL Show. Stop by and welcome the Lions Club Staff, who will have plenty of food and refreshments for all.
FIREARMS – Vendors and Buyers with firearms? We will have a staff member positioned at the front entrance door, who will ensure all firearms have a nylon tie-strap securing the trigger mechanism. Please secure the the trigger mechanism for all your firearms). *Should you have a firearm not secured, the cost will be one dollar. Proceeds will go to the Audie L. Murphy Infantry Museum. Should you desire a receipt for a tax deduction, one will be provided. Colorado Firearms Background Checks? For vendors and Buyers of firearms? Many, if not most of the firearms at each show for sale or swap, fall under [curios and relics] state statues. If the firearm is 50 years or older the day of the show, it falls under Colorado HOUSE BILL 13-1229, SECTION 1, Colorado Revised Statutes, 18-12-112paragragh (6) THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION DO NOT APPLY TO: (a) A TRANSFER OF AN ANTIQUE FIREARM, AS DEFINED IN 18 U.S.C.

*There will be a staff member available to conduct a background check should there be a need for one. A table will be centrally and clearly placed, with a sign indicating background checks conducted here.
JAN 2015 – The Colorado Militaria Show is under new ownership. GLOBOS, Inc. , a small consortium of investors acquired the Military Collector in December 2014. There will be no overall significant changes in the management of the show. Vendors however, will now need to reserve/pay for tables one show ahead of actual show date. This is due to the requirement by the administrators of JEFFCO County Fairgrounds for payment of insurance, hall rental fees and damage deposit to be paid prior to the next scheduled show. Payment by check should be made to GLOBOS, Inc. as noted below.
