Bringing his Outdoor Channel crew and Joe Mantegna to the NRA National Firearms Museum to film a few episodes of "Gun Stories" (set to air in July) wasn't all Michael Bane had in mind when he came to NRA headquarters earlier this month. He also was looking to tap some of the finest firearms minds in the country.
"Jim, Phil and Mark really know their stuff," said Bane. "They are a welcome addition to the show and we'll be sure to find a way to find a place for them in next season's episodes."
Speaking on everything from break tops to GLOCK 23s, each provided a unique bit of insight on a handful of firearms. With Bane and Gun Stories Director Tim Cremin peppering the guys with (sometimes questionable) questions from off camera, Supica, Schreier and Keefe sat in the spotlight and delivered.
"I think Michael was just trying to make me laugh," said Supica. "But it made for a friendly, comfortable environment that hopefully comes across to the audience."
