From Tennessee to Texas with Elvis Presley's 357 Magnum
Houston, Texas - There was plenty to see during the 142nd NRA Annual Meeting in Texas. Celebrities like Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and Ted Nugent, manufacturers like Otis, Marlin and Colt along with plenty of shotguns, rifles and pistols for all. But unless you sneaked into a closed set filming of Curator's Corner, you probably didn't see this gun.
What we have here is the gun of royalty. The King. Elvis himself.
"Mr. Tom Morgan, from Whiteville, Tennessee brought in a Smith & Wesson 357 Magnum Revolver, serial number 688344," explained National Firearms Senior Curator Philip Schreier. "According to the pictures and provenance, this highly engraved and inlaid revolver once belong to Elvis Aaron Presley."
