People The Ashley Update: Throwing Shade on Annie Oakley Ashley Hlebinsky February 15, 2018 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. There are many letters in the archives at the Cody Firearms Museum, and not all of them are free from scandal and snark. Ashley discusses one that throws shade on Annie Oakley.
