Guns The Ashley Update: “If You Ain’t First You Last” – the M1 Carbine Story Ashley Hlebinsky December 30, 2019 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. Ashley has a big update about a new show, Master of Arms. In this week's update, Ashley also shows us an antique rifle that proves safety has always been important. “If You Ain’t First You Last” – the M1 Carbine Story The M1 carbine trials in 1941 brought many competitors together. The victor? Winchester. The Cody Firearms Museum has Test Gun’s 1&2 and the David Marshall Williams Prototype, but today, Ashley is talking about the first production M1 carbine, serial number 1,000,001.
