New Jersey Arms Collectors Club

Sites of Interest to Curio and Relic Collectors and Gun Owners

The NJACC is composed mainly of C&R collectors and shooters. They are also gun owners and as such they are subject to the political whims of our legislatures. All members are required to be members of the National Rifle Association or the National Muzzle-Loader Rifle Association. For this reason, this page features links to organizations and information that provide support to our ideals as well as to vendors who carry many of the items we need.

The following table lists a number of sites for C&R type militaria information. These sites are neither part of nor endorsed by NJACC, but if you are looking for information on a specific item, they may have it. In general, these sites are non-political vendors. Just click on the link and it will take you to the "Table of Links".


The NJACC is largely non-political. We are pro-rights and anti-crime. As individuals, we vote for or against candidates of our individual choosing. In this way we are PRO-VOTE!

However, we are associated with organizations and friends that are more politically inclined. They have provided us with tools and allies in our efforts to protect our rights. The link below, will take you to a table of informational "Fireams Related Sites".


If you are a member of the NJACC and find a site suitable for inclusion, please forward the URL to the webmaster and it will be added. If you find a link that is not working or is offensive, please let the webmaster know and it will be taken care of.
