The Ashley Update: One of One Thousand Winchester Model 1873

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 Ashley is in an empty office as the museum move continues. Today she'll talk about a One of One Thousand Winchester Model 1873 that came in as part of an estate gift. A One of One Thousand is a rifle that is the best out of 1,000 produced, and Ashley breaks down how and why this was done.

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?
