Visitors to the National Firearms Museum at NRA Headquarters enjoy viewing a vast array of over 6,000 historic firearms, expertly preserved and displayed by museum staff. The museum’s three curators (and resident gun geniuses), Jim Supica, Doug Wicklund and Philip Schreier applied the same expertise as they co-authored The Illustrated History of Firearms. In this beautifully illustrated, hardcover book, they chronicle everything from muskets to machine guns; dueling pistols to Glocks; derringers to elephant guns. Supica, Wicklund and Schreier present over 1,500 firearms with color photographs and informed commentary. This is a must-have reference book for your collection and a great conversation starter for your coffee table! Hardcover. Color photos. 304 pages.
