IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (WLUC) - An event happening in Iron Mountain brought together gun and knife collectors.
The United Sportsmen’s Club held their winter Gun and Knife show Jan. 10-11. More than 50 vendors were set up on both levels of the club building.
A wide range of items were available to buy, sell and trade. Hunting rifles, pistols, antique and designer guns could be found at the event.
The money raised helps the club fund the many programs they manage, including hunter’s safety classes, youth shooting lessons and the High School Trap Team.
The club depends on events, and the hard work of their members in order to keep offering these services.
“It’s a totally volunteer organization, so everybody up here is doing volunteer work. Nobody gets paid for it, and everybody does it just because they like to do it and they like the shooting sports,” said John Fuse, Trustee of the United Sportsmen’s Club Board of Directors.
The United Sportsmen’s Club was founded in 1969. Today, they have over 300 members
