The Ashley Update: Infrared Scope from 1951 on an M1 Carbine

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.


This week, Ashley shows us an infrared scope from 1951. Night vision has come a long way, and here’s a cool look at what the military was using post World War II.

Tonight is a new episode of Master of Arms, check out the preview below:
