NRA National Firearms Museum


For the September 27, 28 & 29, 2019 Nation's Gun Show the NRA's National Firearms Museum is proud to present  


Testament in Steel 

On September 11, 2001 - Americans across the land were held in thrall as they watched in horror as the first one, then a second, and then finally a third aircraft crashed into buildings and saw a coalition of agencies and emergency workers rushing to save those in need. There have been many stories of American courage on that dark day, told on television and in newspapers, but none have focused on the stories that can be revealed by the recovered firearms possessed by two of the heroes that were there, on that day, at the Twin Towers.


NRA’s National Firearms Museum will be bringing a special traveling exhibition featuring the personal sidearms that belonged to two New York City officers – Walter Weaver and John D’Allara.  These two Smith & Wesson handguns are just as they were recovered from the rubble at Ground Zero. These two officers were part of the 71 law enforcement officers, 343 members of the New York Fire Department, and well over 2,800 civilians who perished as the World Trade Center buildings fell on that date.

Located in the Fairfax, VA headquarters of the National Rifle Association, the National Firearms Museum daily offers thousands of historic arms at no admission charge from 9:30am to 5pm.
