A No Buyers Premium Firearms Auction Service

Letter to Customers:

It is hard to believe that it has been 5 years since we purchased our family business from our parents who founded Redding Auction Service, Inc. in 1974. The transfer officially took place on October 1st, 2018, and it is hard to believe how fast those 5 years have come and gone. Over those 5 years, we have had many highs, and unfortunately some lows. Those lows came with the passing of our mother Clara Redding on May 1st, 2020, and most recently the passing of our father C. David Redding on December 18th, 2022. We also cannot forget the unfortunate time that our country endured through COVID-19. I have always believed that with any negative, there is something positive to come out of it. Through COVID-19 we were forced to make decisions that I feel ended up making us a more efficient company overall. Losing our parents and founders of the company created a gap, but we now have a new generation of family members stepping in to fill that gap and carry the family business on. My daughter Brianna graduated from Shippensburg University in 2023 with a degree in business management and marketing, and she was the first person in our family to receive a college degree. My son Cole graduated from Gettysburg Area High School in 2022, has completed his course for auctioneering, and is studying to take the state test which will make him a fully licensed auctioneer. We have made many upgrades to our existing facility with expansions and remodels, and even purchased a second facility located in Bonneauville, PA. We have more than doubled our staff since 2018 which has made this growth possible. We have worked very hard over the past 5 years to give all of you the best auction experience both on the selling and purchasing side. We do not take anything for granted and promise to continue working just as hard for all our clients in years to come. Our family and staff cannot say thank you enough. To show our appreciation for your support through all the high and low eras over the past 5 years, at the auction on December 10th we will be providing all of you with a free lunch. We will be serving pit beef sandwiches, chips, and drinks. We look forward to seeing all of you as we start year number 6, which will be packed full of more auctions and continued growth. Thank you again, and Happy Thanksgiving!  Respectfully Pat Redding
