National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Phil Schreier and NRANews Executive Producer John Popp on NRAblogThe final segment of Curator's Corner Goes to the Movies arrives in the form of a golden oldie -- The Thin Man series. Based on Dashiell Hammett's detective novel of the same name, The Thin Man was the first flick in a series of six. It stars William Powell and Myrna Loy as a crime-solving couple in the city that never sleeps. And it's all wrapped up with a "here's what happened" dinner scene at the end.

The gun in question is a Colt Police Positive. First introduced in 1907, this six cylinder double-action revolver came with a internal hammer block safety. But this particular handgun wasn't a regular factory edition ... this one was something special.

For Nick
Stay Lucky
From All The Boys

But we're going to stop at the inscription. After all, if we gave you all the details about the Colt Police Positive you'd have no reason to tune into tonight's Curator's Corner segment, featuring National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Phil Schreier at 10:20 p.m. on or on Sirius Patriot channel 144.
