The show floor of the SCI Convention is a treasure trove of classic, custom and hard to find items from all over the world. Not the least of which are some of the most beautiful pieces of functional art in existence. These firearms represent the craft and artistry of some of the most talented makers in the world!
The opening night banquet and awards was a night of triumph and happy tears. SCI President Larry Higgins welcomed the attendees and reminded them of the importance of the SCI mission. Sue Hankner was recognized for a lifetime of tireless service to SCI Foundation/Sables Education programs and Membership & Chapter Development Committee Co-Chairs Sherry Maddox and Don Detwiler presented the Chapter Publications awards.
