Featured New Series: The Ashley Update Candice Horner October 16, 2017 Ashley Hlebinsky is one of the most interesting people in the Firearms Industry and is the newest contributor to RECOIL. Hlebinsky will be giving weekly video updates on what she's been up to. Check out her weekly posts, The Ashley Update, every Thursday. This week will be the first of the series. In a nutshell, Hlebinsky is: The Robert W. Woodruff Curator of the Cody Firearms Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. She manages over 8,000 firearms, ranging from the 1400s through modern day. Prior to her work at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, she researched in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Firearms Collection. Hlebinsky earned her B.A. and later M.A. in American History and Museum Studies, focusing her research on the perception of firearms in culture. In addition to her duties as curator, Hlebinsky is President of The Gun Code, LLC, where she serves as a firearms consultant (for both museums and firearms manufacturers), a freelance firearms writer, an NRA Certified firearms instructor, an international lecturer, an on-camera firearms historian, and a television producer.
