National Firearms Museum's collection of Clint Eastwood guns from movies like Dirty Harry, Pale Rider, and Tightrope on NRAblogThe National Firearms Museum's (NFM) trip to Wanenmacher's Tulsa Arms Show has two purposes: the first is to show off part of their Hollywood Guns collection, the second is to take a look at your guns.

NFM Director Jim Supica and Senior Curator Phil Schreier have gently packed up a selection of their collection for the long ride to Tulsa. This particular component of the collection comes courtesy of Clint Eastwood. We're not claiming that Eastwood personally donated these guns, but he did have a handle on them in a few of his pictures. The collection includes:

  • a Smith & Wesson Model 29 .44 Magnum from Dirty Harry
  • a Colt Walker 1847 from The Outlaw Josey Wales
  • a Remington 1858 New Army from Pale Rider
  • a Smith & Wesson 66 snub nose from Tightrope
  • The Walther P38 used by Scorpio in Dirty Harry

 "The Museum table at this show presents the Museum as a resource to the community," Supica said. "We have way cool stuff people want to see and people need to know we're here. Plus we're going to provide a little something extra."

National Firearms Museum Director Jim Supica on NRAblog That little something extra is an Antique Roadshow style taping of Curator's Corner. Yes, the boys from NFM are asking you to bring your very own guns to their table – designated as LN-1 – for inspection and evaluation. If it's something they deem to be truly interesting, you and your firearm could end up on NRANews.

But don't take our word for it -- hear it all from Supica himself tonight at 9:20 EST on NRANews.com or on Sirius Patriot channel 144.
