600 Nitro Express double rifles You'll find pieces of the National Firearms Museum (NFM) this weekend at the Nation's Gun Show in Chantilly, Virginia. Held at the Dulles Expo Center, the Nation's Gun Show is a unique opportunity experience a true firearms extravaganza. Doing their part for the cause, the NFM will be showing off three of their "Big Guns" from the Petersen Gallery.

"Robert Petersen amassed one of the finest collection of sporting arms in the United States," said NFM Director Jim Supica. "We are proud to be able to bring a small sample of that collection to the Expo in Chantilly."

Scheduled to appear are a Purdey .600 double rifle (above left,) a Daniel Frazer .600 double rifle (above right,) and a Holland & Holland double rifle. Each are finished with engravings and/or inlays from the African plains. If you were on the fence about attending this show, let these shotguns push you over the edge – they alone are worth the price of admission.

The National Firearms Museum is open daily with no admission charge. Visit us at 11250 Waples Mill Road, Fairfax, VA 22030.
