NRA National Firearms Museum

For the July 26, 27 & 28, 2019 Nation's Gun Show the NRA's National Firearms Museum is proud to present  

Special Smith & Wessons

NRA’s National Firearms Museum has gathered up some of the rare treasures hiding away in our collection vaults and we’re bringing them to the July 26 – 28, 2019 gun show at the Chantilly Expo Center.  Folks like our Hollywood Guns, so we’re bringing Snake Plissken’s own S&W, a custom .44 Magnum wielded by Kurt Russell in the 1996 film, Escape from LA.  Law enforcement collectors will be intrigued by the two top-break sixguns that were once owned by James B. Hume, better known as the man who captured the infamous California stagecoach robber, Black Bart.  Hume made many arrests on outlaws that robbed banks and Wells Fargo moneyboxes out in the West.

If you like seeing great pieces that were manufactured in Springfield, Massachusetts, we’ll also be displaying shoulder-stocked S&W carbines, guns associated with local lawmen, and Civil War generals.  This traveling exhibition will be a one-time presentation, so shake off those mid-summer doldrums and head off to Chantilly on the last weekend of July. 

Come learn about arms history at the museum table.  Tell us about your family treasures!  Or if you want to come by and see the museum galleries in person The NRA National Firearms Museum, located 6 miles from show in the Fairfax, VA headquarters of the National Rifle Association at 11250 Waples Mill Road in Fairfax, VA  just off Rt. 66 at exit 57-A. Open daily that offers thousands of historic arms at no admission charge from 9:30am to 5pm.
