Phil Schreier left Oregon and headed to Montana, where he and Matt Sharpe are displaying six of the National Firearms Museum's Guns West! exhibit:

The staff of the National Firearms Museum is taking treasures from their collection on the road this weekend. We have 6 firearms from the Guns West! exhibit on display at the brand new Cabela's in Billings, Montana, through Memorial Day weekend. Stop by and visit Senior Curator Philip Schreier and his erstwhile Assistant Curator Matthew Sharpe at the Gun Library on Sunday 10 - 6pm and Monday 9 - 6 pm.
The Reel Guns of Real Heroes exhibit consists of John Wayne's Winchester Model 1892 large loop rifle from his 1939 classic Stagecoach, Wayne's Walker Colt from True Grit as well as Clint Eastwood's Walker from The Outlaw Josey Wales. Also included are NRA Past President Charlton Heston's flintlock from The Mountain Men, Chuck Connor's 1892 from The Rifleman TV series and Tom Selleck's Sharps rifle from 1990's Quigley Down Under. Over $500,000 worth of museum treasures are on public display at this once-in-a-lifetime chance to view museum highlights in Montana.

Thanks, Phil! Anyone within a reasonable drive of Phil and Matt should try to check out Cabela's. An added bonus is the fact that Phil Schreier--in addition to being a renowned firearms expert--is a military historian. NRAblog has a feeling he will happily entertain with military stories appropriate for the Memorial Day weekend.
