National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Phil Schreir holding a 1889 Colt Double Action Navy Revolver like Teddy Roosevelt had while NRANews producer John Popp takes a closer look on NRAblog. As it happens from time to time with live studio broadcast, things got a little busy last week during the Curator's Corner hour of NRANews. That means those of you listening last Thursday night didn't get to hear all of NRA National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Phil Schreier's tale about how Teddy Roosevelt wound up with an 1889 USS Navy A 1889 Colt Double Action Navy Revolver on NRAblog. Revolver on his hip while serving as a Colonel in the U.S. Army during the Spanish American War in 1898.

Fear not. John Popp and the crew over there at NRANews called earlier today to let us know that they are going to complete the Teddy Roosevelt segment during tonight's broadcast.

So once again, I say to you, that if you want to find out why it's call the USS Maine Navy Revolver and how Teddy Roosevelt came to carry it while charging up San Juan Hill, you'll have to tune in at 10:40 p.m. eastern time as Phil joins Executive Producer John Popp for Curator's Corner on or Sirius/XM Patriot Satellite Radio.
