As one of two Senior Curators for the NRA National Firearms Museum, Phil Schreier has access to all sorts of firearms — Civil War muskets, Wild West revolvers and competition rifles just to name a few. Even better, he has all sorts of stories to go with all of those guns. That's what makes him such a good guest for Curator's Corner on NRANews. But for tonight's episode, Phil reached out to NRA Range Chief Safety Officer Thomas Ives for a little of both.
What Thomas brings to the curator's table tonight is a Model 1968 Colt .32 New Police Positive Special. As the story goes, a friend's father purchased the Colt from shop in Norfolk, Virginia. The father then did a curious thing with the gun ... nothing. After the father passed away, Tom purchased the pistol from his friend and found it to be in amazing condition. Original box, wrapped in the original oil paper with the original blue – now there's a find for any collector.
For the complete story on this particular Colt .32 New Police Positive Special Model 1968, tune in tonight at 10:40 p.m. Eastern Time as Chief Range Safety Officer Tom Ives shares the skinny and Phil fills in the rest on the Sirius/XM Patriot Channel or NRANews.com.
