    In 2004 my husband decided he was going to be a Civil War Reenactor.  He marked about six weekends on our calendar when he would be out of town reenacting.  Not wanting to be left behind with our very young daughters, I balked.  He said, "Buy dresses!  We'll make it a family affair. "  We drove to the nearest dry goods store and bought dresses for the girls and me.  We went to our first reenactment and I found out that during the Civil War, women cooked and cleaned for their men.  Since that wasn't exactly my idea of a fun weekend, I decided to become a sutler.  A sutler is a shopkeeper that provides supplies and provisions to soldiers.  I soon learned that there was a demand for toy guns.  That is the story about how the Cap Gun Store was born.  I hope you love our store as much as we do.  Thank you for shopping with us.  You are helping those two little girls get through college.
