For the past few months, we've been watching episodes of Curator's Corner shot live on site at the Wanenmacher's Arms Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma. While the gang from the NRA National Firearms Museum are always happy to shoot their show on the road, there's nothing better than filming back home in the friendly confines of NRA Headquarters.
Pictured to the right is Senior Curator Philip Schreier along side NRANews Executive Producer John Popp as they prepare to shoot the next batch of Corner episodes. It is there, inside the famed Ruger Gallery, that Popp believes he finds the real gems.
"Phil has great stories for every firearm here in the museum," explained Popp. "We only have time to hear one or two of them while we're shooting, be he goes on and tells the rest of the tales between tapings. It's a fascinating way to spend an afternoon."
Last week's filming concentrated on the ever popular Hollywood Guns exhibit. There was a touch of the synthetic (rubber guns used on film), offerings from the realm of science fiction (Star Wars and Serenity), and even something from an earlier effort by famed Hollywood tough guy Steve McQueen.
Those episodes are scheduled to begin their run in about nine days. So dig in on Thursday nights and prepare for the return of Hollywood Guns on Curator's Corner.
