The Ultimate Firearms Destination for the Gun Lifestyle

The Ashley Update: Beauty and the Beast, with Guns instead of Books

Hlebinsky, who previously worked at the Smithsonian is exactly the kind of ambassador the shooting community needs. Torrentially well informed, passionate to the point of geekery, and blessed with a wicked sense of humor, she can swill whiskey and smoke cigars while holding forth on black powder muskets until your eyes glaze over. Spreading the gospel of responsible firearms ownership has never been more important, and being able to demystify an inanimate object while educating the public about its role in the nation’s history goes a long way toward countering negative publicity.

This week on The Ashley Update, construction of the new museum is ongoing, so there are a whole lot of empty racks. We get a sneak peek inside some of the storage labs in the lower level, and also see a french bolt action with a Pugsley stamp. Edwin Pugsley was a designer, Winchester CEO, and a helluva lot of guns in the Cody Firearms Museum came from him.
