Guns The Ashley Update: Custom Knives, Fully Automatic Garands Ashley Hlebinsky October 26, 2017 Join the Conversation 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 there's snow, a $17,000 knife, scaracters, and select fire M1 Garands. WHAT’S GOING ON FOR NEXT WEEK Ashley will be in the office next week, her update will incorporate some of the projects she’s been working on at the museum. And, we may get a glimpse at some rare firearms from the past. Do you have a question for Ashley about anything she’s discussed this week or even about some of the little-known things she loves?
