Guns The Ashley Update: M2 Machine Gun History and Simulator at the Cody Firearms Museum Ashley Hlebinsky May 17, 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. The Ashley Update: M2 Machine Gun History and Simulator at the Cody Firearms Museum This week, Ashley gives us a brief history of the M2 Machine Gun. She talks about how industries often overlapped. Then she shows a video of her shooting the machine gun simulator at the Cody Firearms Museum. Currently, the museum is closed during its final renovations. But the grand opening is on July 6, 2019.
