As this museum was being created I happened to be in the DC area, and went by to see its early version many years ago. I don't know why old guns instead of bass boats or muscle cars from the days of my youth...but I've always been drawn to the history and development of the firearm, both from a sociological standpoint (read Dr. Joyce Malcolm or Stephen P. Halbrook) and from the satisfaction of shooting on the range. This details some of the more interesting firearms in the museum...from historically significant to artistically decorated as presentation pieces. I don't buy coffee table books much...but I bought this one.

This is one of those huge, heavy coffee table books which has a lot of great photos of some of the really classic firearms. As it is this is the only way I will ever be able to see them (The Guns) as the cost of them is way beyond my budget unless I win the lottery soon. By the way go see the NRA Museum in the DC Area as it is well worth the trip if you have the chance.

For those who have been (or haven't) to the Historical NRA Museum in VA., this is required reading as it will either re-live the marvelous history and aesthetic appeal of the NRA Museum for those that have been there and provide same for those who have not yet visited (make it a point to get there in person as words can not describe the experience). MUST HAVE book for NRA/2A supporters and gun aficionados!

This book is exceptionally well done. It has beautiful pictures, including many of exquisitely engraved firearms, complemented by very informative text. I have seen many firearms books, but none quite like this. I bought the book as a fathers day gift, and my dad couldn't put it down. Highly recommended!

beautiful pictures of historical guns and such. I felt like I was actually in the museum look at the features.
Absolutely great "coffee table" book filled with beautiful examples of some of most important and rare firearms of the last 200+ years. Well worth the money for the pictures alone.
