There was a welcome mix–mash of scouting at the NRA National Firearms Museum last weekend. More than fifty Cub and Boy Scouts from Pack 53, Troop 4, and Troop 52 from the Warren County, Virginia area joined parents and chaperons for a Night at the Museum.
"They were so excited after hearing they could spend the night," said one mother. "I don't know about the other parents, but my kids were bouncing in their seats all the way over."
As the evening began, Senior Curator Doug Wicklund asked where the little ones wanted to start ... Hollywood Guns was the overwhelming favorite.
"Let's see, I'd say they went for the usual favorites," said Wicklund. "Dirty Harry's .44 Magnum, the light saber from Star Wars ... that's where the scouts went. The chaperons went more for True Grit, The Outlaw Josey Wales, The Departed, and The Hurt Locker."
