NPSC Legends Smith & Wesson revolver highlighted on NRANews

Captain Philip Hemphill shares his Smith & Wesson Model 64 on Curator's Corner There's a great deal of travel involved when you work for the National Firearms Museum. This weekend, Senior Curator Phil Schreier is off to Las Vegas, Nevada for the 10th Annual SASS (Single Action Shooting Society) Convention and Wild West Christmas. A couple of weeks ago, Museum Director Jim Supica was in Oklahoma for the Wanenmacher's Tulsa Arms Show. And that's where they taped a whole boatload of guns for Curator's Corner on NRANews.

First to make an appearance is a Smith & Wesson Model 64 revolver owned by ten-time National Police Shooting Champ Philip Hemphill.

The Model 64 is the military/police version of the Smith & Wesson Model 10. Available in stainless steel with either a three or four inch barrel, the Model 64 is a six shot .38 special weighs about two pounds (sans ammunition) with an 8 1/2 inch barrel.

To learn more about this particular Smith & Wesson, tune in tonight at 10:40 eastern time as NRANews producer John Popp is joined by NRA General Operations Executive Director Kayne Robinson and the Museum's Jim Supica for Curator's Corner back West on or Sirius/XM Patriot Satellite Radio.
