Norma Ammunition CEO Torbjörn Lindskog with NRA Past President Kayne Robinson at NRA Museum

Fairfax, Virginia - The National Firearms Museum is a magnet for American History buffs. Telling the tale of America's struggles and triumphs from the landing at Plymouth Rock to the Civil War to the battles in the Middle East, the Museum's displays illustrate our story and our use of firearms.

One history buff who made his way to the museum here in Fairfax is Norma Ammunition CEO Torbjörn Lindskog.

"Mr. Torbjörn is a life member of the NRA," said Deputy Executive Director Andrea Cerwinske. "He strongly suggested that a number of his executives joined as well."

Firing a cannon at the 2011 Noth-South Skirmish Association's National Competitions The North-South Skirmish Association, created in 1950 to honor the soldiers from both sides of the American Civil War, promotes the shooting of Civil War firearms and artillery. But they don't stop there, they also encourage the preservation and display of Civil War materials such as their firearms, the battlefields and the uniforms.

Throughout the year, N-SSA holds "skirmishes" where the units, comprised of fellow association members, compete against each other.

The Spring Nationals, held May 16-20, at Fort Shenandoah, the association's home range, will feature matches for smoothbore, mortar, breechloader, carbine, revolver and more. You might even see a few members of the NRA staff walking around.
