People The Ashley Update: Tactical Rifles of the 1850s Ashley Hlebinsky January 19, 2018 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. This week, Ashley shows us some historic tactical pieces from the Cody Firearms Museum. Next week, you can catch her at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, NV.
