The American flag waving over NRA headquarters for Memorial Day on NRAblog

Fairfax, Virginia - This weekend is more than just a three-day excuse for shopping, over indulgence and carousing with friends. It's about Memorial Day. The day we remember those men and women who fell in the service of our country. While we don't begrudge those who choose to include the shopping and carousing with friends, we do suggest that you spend the day remembering. Visit a Civil War battlefield, stop by memorial, or tour the National Firearms Museum.

Pirate Pistols, Revolutionary Shotguns and Buffalo Rifles at NRA Convention

A Peugeot Shotgun at the NRA Antique Guns and Gold Showcase opens in Houston, Texas

Houston, Texas - With great old guns comes great responsibilities. Okay, so that's a touch to close to Spiderman, but the principal is pretty much the same. But let's go a step further. That's accept the face that with great old guns come great old stories. And there there plenty of great stories to be had yesterday at the NRA Antique Guns and Gold Showcase.

Manned by experts throughout the firearm industry, including Guns & Ammo writers and Blue Book of Gun Values publishers (along with a few cats from the National Firearms Museum), the Antique Guns and Gold Showcase was an opportunity for people to bring in that rifle, pistol or shotgun that's be sitting in the closet for ages and find out what it's worth. Better yet, some even had a story to go along with the guns.

National Firearms Museum exhibits at Wanenmacher's Tulsa Gun Show

NRA Museum Director Jim Supica and Senior Curator Philip Schreier Tulsa, Oklahoma - April 6th & 7th marks the return of Wanenmacher's Tulsa Gun Show. 11 acres of rifles, pistols, shotguns and accessories for experienced and novice gun owners and collectors alike. A tiny portion of all those acres will be taken up by the NRA's National Firearms Museum. That and a little bit more.

"We're filming more episode of NRA's Guns and Gold," said National Firearms Museum Director Jim Supica. "Every year we see an incredible collection of guns here in Tulsa. That's why we keep coming back."

Pulling patrons from the show floor, producers for NRA's Guns and Gold go in search of the historic, the eclectic, and the unusual. Guns that will make the home viewers bridge to the edge of their couch and say wow. Guns like the one the museum brought for display.
