Supica and Schreier on History 2's United Stuff of America, American Firepower

United Stuff of America is a cross-country treasure hunt Fairfax, Virginia - Earlier this year, NRA Museum's Jim Supica and Philip Schreier were contacted about a new show on History Channel. Seems they were in need of a little firearm insight and thought the boys could help. After two failed attempts, thanks to the recent snowmagedons, our Gun Gurus made the trip to New York City for a day's worth of filming for the new show — United Stuff of America.

"Originally the show was titled Hunt for History," Schreier said with a grin. "But United Stuff works too."

NRA Museum keeps collection of fake guns to keep them off the open market

The fakes of February

A fake Colt Paterson revolver kept under wraps at the NRA National Firearms Museum

Fairfax, Virginia - To most casual viewers, the above pistol appears to be a Texas Belt Model Colt Patterson. There's the telltale long tailed barrel, the distinctive shape and an aging that suggest we're talking about a 170 year old gun here.
