A Superbowl Sunday two-fer from the galleries of the National Firearms Museum

Smith & Wesson Victory Model 10 revolver at the NRA Museum

Fairfax, Virginia - Preparations for last month’s SHOT Show and this month’s Great American Outdoor Show meant a few items fell on the back burner. Not to be forgotten mind you, just to be saved for a rainy day. Or, as is the case of this Super Bowl Sunday’s Curator’s Corner, a snowy one.

So what do we have for you today? A quick look at two of NRA Museum Senior Curator Philip Schreier’s favorites … a Smith & Wesson Victory Model 10 and a Heckler & Koch P7.

Editors, writers, and marketers from inform, those who empower and mobilize citizens for political change

Rachel Williams of Townhall.com takes a shot at the NRA Range in Fairfax, Virginia Fairfax, Virginia - A great thing about working at the NRA is that you never know who's going to show up next. That's especially true when it comes to the Headquarters Range. In fact, we had a number of particularly interesting guests arrive just the other day.

A collection of grizzled veterans and antsy greenhorns from Townhall.com swung by the squeeze off a few rounds. And by a few I mean close to 2,400.

Not a bad way to spend the afternoon, aye?

Bob Owens, editor of sister site BearingArms.com, wrote about the experience in the article below:

Last minute absent-mindedness can lead to SHOT Show madness in Vegas

Southwest Airlines gate at Reagan National Airport

Alexandria, Virginia - We're all human ... my thanks to the peanut gallery for the audible, "duh". My point being that as human beings we are imperfect by design. Be it by way of driving skills, computer ability, business acumen, or ability to catch a ball, there's something amiss in those primordial architectural plans that allow us to reveal in our imperfections. One of my greatest? I forget. Oh yea, memory.

Former Alaska Governor set to take on second season on Sportsman Channel

The second season of Amazing America with Sarah Palin Fairfax, Virginia - With the second season of Amazing America with Sarah Palin set to debut tonight at 9 on Sportsman Channel, the former governor is making a last minute publicity charge to promote the show. One of the must-do stops on the tour is our very own NRA News.

Crowned Miss USA in 2006, Conner arrives with a passion for the outdoors.

"Growing up in Kentucky, I grew to appreciate and love the outdoors,” said Conner. “I would tag along with my dad and uncles when they would go fishing, and those memories are some of my favorites. I may live in Los Angeles now, but I'm still a Kentucky girl at heart."

NRA News highlights .45 caliber SIG 220 carried by Curator's brother

.45 caliber Sig Sauer pistol in the NRA Museum lab

Fairfax, Virginia - Everyone collects something. Be it action figures or coins or stamps or cars, odds are there's a boatload of something you've stashed away for your very own. For Philip Schreier, senior curator for NRA Museums, it's guns. And though Phil's collection is impressive, there are a few pieces that stand out.

Not because they're rare or worth a boatload of cash mind you, but because of the intrinsic value. He highlighted one such piece on yesterday's episode of Curator's Corner. A SIG Sauer P220. And what makes this pistol so valuable to Phil?
