What We Do
We are an organization dedicated to the preservation of history, heritage, and education. To that end, we support ongoing youth education through scholarship and sponsorship programs; support legislation helpful to the preservation and use of firearms by responsible collectors, shooters and sportsmen; and we are committed to providing events where our community can view historical firearms collections, develop their own collections, and experience the responsibility of safe firearm use. The AGCA holds and preserves the world’s largest collection of commemorative Alaska firearms. The membership of this organization supports these efforts financially and through volunteer work, and collectively serves as a valuable resource for historic research and preservation skills.
The AGCA is noncommercial, nondiscriminatory, nonsectarian, and nonpartisan.
Membership is open to any person or organization who supports the purpose of the AGCA and who is legally entitled to possess firearms and is subject to overview and approval by the Membership Committee.
Who We Are
The AGCA has established a non-profit status with both the State of Alaska and the IRS as a 501(3)(c) organization and public charity. We are an organization dedicated to the preservation of history, heritage, and to furthering education.
The AGCA offers scholarships to Alaska high school graduates who are in need of help and have academic achievement beyond the norm.
The AGCA contributes financially to Olympic shooters, college, high school, and other rifle teams and shooting programs, veterans’ programs and other civic organizations.
The AGCA has accumulated the largest and most extensive collection of Alaska commemorative firearms in the world and has exhibited this collection nationally. This collection continues to grow with the addition of both firearms and related items that reflect – or directly participated in – the history of this state.
