NRA National Firearms Museum

For the April 12, 13 & 14 2019 Nation's Gun Show the NRA's National Firearms Museum is proud to present  

Guns Through The Generations

Almost any firearm has a story to tell and NRA’s National Firearms Museum will be bringing some incredible
pieces that reveal family history to this April's Nation’s Gun Show at the Dulles Expo Center, in Chantilly VA.

You may think that you hold onto things in your house, but what about a rifle that stayed in the same family for
more than 180 years?  Pennsylvania farmer Michael Ruble ordered a fullstock percussion rifle from gunsmith
Lewis Lepper in 1835.  While the Ruble family moved from Mifflin County, through the generations, one of their
most prized possessions was this  .41 caliber longrifle that still bears an inscribed silver plate with Ruble’s name.

 Maybe a rifle that was ordered in 1865 and is still shooting may be more your speed.  Gunsmith Sam Stull of
Coshocton county in Ohio built this halfstock rifle for Jacob Wolfe when he was just 15 years old.  It stayed in the
Wolfe family until this year after its restoration and donation to the National Firearms Museum.
Come learn about arms history at the museum table.  Tell us about your family treasures!  Or if you want to come
