The Nation's Gun Show
this past weekend was a tremendous success. Amber Lammers, an assistant curator at the National Firearms Museum
, reported from the Museum's booth in the Dulles Expo Center:
The last Chantilly Gun Show of the year was a weekend to remember. The turnout was amazing, with large crowds on each of the three days. In fact, Friday night, the show received media attention.
The National Firearms Museum displayed an exhibit on Sharps rifles. These are four of the most historic guns in the museum collection, and this was the first time all four have been displayed in public.
In addition to taking the rifles, the buffalo head (pictured above) from the museum also came along. With the large turnout for the show, we had many visitors come by the table and learn about our sharps rifles and the Museum in general. The buffalo head was a huge hit with visitors and many people, young and old, stopped to have their picture taken with it.
