NRA National Firearms Museum
"The Guns That Were There"

NRA’s National Firearms Museum will be bringing out some interesting pieces of history to the Nation's Gun Show in Chantilly,VA at the Dulles Expo Center on June 8, 9 & 10, 2018.  If you’ve ever wondered what special stories guns could tell – we’re bringing “Guns That Were There.”

We’ll display great guns that were there at D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge, pieces that belonged to famous WWII heroes including Medal of Honor recipient Gregory “Pappy” Boyington, and even pistols associated with Nazi saboteurs and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.  This one-time exhibition will feature many significant pieces that have never traveled outside the National Firearms Museum before, and these intriguing guns will reveal captivating tales from World War II, stories of war trophies brought back and exploits from Europe and the Pacific.

If you can’t get enough guns at the Showmasters June Nation's Gun Show, plan to also visit the National Firearms Museum at NRA Headquarters at 11250 Waples Mill Road, Fairfax VA.  Just six miles away, our galleries are open daily, free of charge.  The museum store offers a host of souvenirs and great reading material for budding collectors.  Call (703) 267-1600, e-mail, or just check out our website at
