The Minnesota Weapons Collectors Association is the largest and oldest weapons collectors group in the state of Minnesota.
The MWCA was established by a group of collecting enthusiasts. The organization provides an opportunity for collectors to buy, sell and trade and a forum for social interaction and fellowship for those interested in the hobby of arms collecting.
The MWCA covers a broad spectrum of arms collecting. This includes aboriginal weapons and antique to modern arms and edged weapons, and sporting collectibles, including ammunition, accessories and accouterments. The wide diversity of interest is one of the strong points and benefits of the group.
Membership of the MWCA stands at over 1,000, with a significant number of charter members still actively involved.
The MWCA presently sponsors up to eight meetings per year in the Twin Cities and Rochester. These are 300 to 600 table shows with exhibitors from all over the country.
Our biggest, most popular all-around show is held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds Coliseum building in March of each year. Our Annual Trophy Show features many fine collections set up exclusively for display, competition, and education.
The MWCA is a non-profit organization. Proceeds go to the Boy Scouts, firearms safety programs, junior shooting programs and many other worthy organizations.
New MWCA membership is $35.00 for the first year. Membership renewal is $30.00 for one year.
