The IWA Show 2004

Cherry’s has been attending the IWA Show in Nurnberg, Germany since 1992.  It is the European Shot Show where all the manufacturers, distributors and dealers come to see what is new and old in the firearms business.  We are an attendee, working during the day with the manufacturers and dealers.  At night we have dinners with our collectors, and friends.  It is a thoroughly enjoyable show.
