My Anschutz smallbore rifle. We actually had a great representation:
- We had the stunning M1 Garand that brought in the 'adult' crowd
- We had two very awesome looking "Call of Duty" rifles that brought in the youth crowd
- We had my 'space gun' that brought in people who just wanted to know what the heck it even was or what caliber, etc.
So it worked out really well, the firearms were a great magnet to bring people face-to-face and allow us to talk about Calguns.
The overall response was overwhelmingly positive to the booth and our 'presence.' I'd consider the 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM (when I left) a success.
