News & Announcements
Vegas Baby! I'm off to the big Las Vegas Antique Arms Show on Friday morning, with some visits to see customers along the way. The show is held in the convention pavilion of the Westgate Hotel & Resort. I'll be set up in my usual location: Section A, Row B, Tables 2-5. My good friend Cliff Sophia from CS Arms in Northern Virginia will be set up with me as well. The show is open to the public Friday January 25 - Sunday January 27. Dealer set up is on Thursday. Honored Guest passes can be purchased to allow you entry for the entire show, including Thursday. Come by if you can. It is one of the top 3 antique and collectible arms shows in the country. I'll be on the road for this show from Friday 1/17 through Wednesday 1/30. You can still order items from the web site, or by contacting me directly, but shipping will not take place until Thursday 1/31. On Thursday I repack and head to the big Chickamauga Civil War Show in Dalton, GA, which is being held the first weekend of February, only a week after the Las Vegas show. Never hesitate to email or call while I'm on the road, that phone number on the web site goes to my cell, and IF I can answer, I will.
Don't forget, the new season on Antique Roadshow started airing on January 7. Check out the show and look for Arms & Militaria appraisals from myself and my good friends and "stablemates": Joely Bohy (Skinner Auctions), Rafael Eledge (Shiloh Relics) and Jeff Shrader (Advance Guard Militaria). If you get to watch the shows we filmed at Churchill Downs in Louisville, you'll understand the "stablemates" reference!
I hope you are enjoying the new site, it's been a learning experience, a lot of work and a lot of expense, but I think the final product has been worth the effort and wait. I hope to hear from you soon!

Welcome to the newly redesigned College Hill Arsenal web site! This has been a long time coming and involved substantial amounts of labor and expense. When discussing a new site with many of you, the most common comment was "save the Previously Sold section". Well, we have done that, again at the cost of much designer time and expense. However, some things did not transfer well or work quite the way we had hoped.
If you are an customer that previously had an account on the old site, you will probably have to create a new account on this one. I am sorry for the inconvenience, but the data base import failed to capture and export passwords, thus rendering the old accounts useless. In some cases your old account may have transferred correctly, but more than likely it did not. If you have any trouble establishing a new account, contact me and I will help you.
With the new site design, we have lost the text box on the home page that I used to keep everyone updated on my travel schedule. This has been replaced with this page, which you can access by clicking on the menu link box in the left column that reads "News & Announcement". I will continue to keep you updated from this page the the best of my ability.
Enjoy the new site, I hope you appreciate the numerous improvements that are visible and not so visible, which are sort of "under the hood" performance enhancements. The biggest one is that the site is now mobile friendly and should provide an easier browsing experience for you all. Another nice feature is that there is a box on the left side of the home page that will always list the three most recently added items, with thumbnail photos that you can click on to go directly to that item. This is even faster than going to the "New Items" section, as the three most recent items will always be there!
Thanks for visiting the site. I look forward to doing business with many of you.
