The mission of this not-for-profit corporation is to provide an opportunity for the use,
appreciation and collection of side by side shotguns and rifles.
This corporation originated in 1994 when four friends who loved both side by side shotguns and the game of sporting clays recognized that the emphasis on score discouraged
the use of fine game guns at sporting clays events.
In response, they set up shoots for classic guns with emphasis on fun targets,
Vintagers attire, fine dining and good fellowship.
They had too much fun to score targets and the group known as "The Vintagers" became a success.
Membership in the Vintagers is available to those who share our enthusiasm for the Double Gun.
invited to all shooting and social events promoted by the Order of Edwardian Gunners, Inc.
(thenceforth known as Vintagers herein) and by its chartered affiliates.
Members in good standing receive a periodic newsletter which may contain historic double gun
information, news from the Headquarters, calendar of events and members classified ads as well
as additional information. Members receive free admission to International and Regional Vintager
A shooting experience for Gentlemen and Gentlewomen who appreciate the guns, attire and habits of the
