The Ashley Update: Shotgun from 1910 with a Purposely Bent Stock

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 back in Cody, Wyoming and popped into one of the vaults to show us a shotgun. Not just any shotgun though, one from 1910 with a crazy bent stock. The stock was designed to address cross-dominance issues–and it's a unique way to get around shooting right-handed but left-eyed.

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?
