People The Ashley Update: The Small Arms Review and Unique Wedding Planning Ashley Hlebinsky December 7, 2017 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 on The Ashley Update, Ashley has just returned back from Phoenix, AZ. While there, she went to the Small Arms review. A couple of the highlights were making plans for her wedding and watching a show by a professional gunslinger, Joey Dillon. Ashley says these are her wedding planners: Reed Knight and Joe McClain… and RECOIL's Iain Harrison was at the SAW, too. Joey Dillon and Cheryl Todd of AZ Firearms and Gun Freedom Radio. The beginnings of a gun tree. Ashley found a “safe space” in Cody. 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?
