Visiting the NRA Vault

    When I visited the NRA HQ last week Matt Sharpe took me into the infamous NRA vault where the National Firearms Museum stores all their firearms that are not on display. I was allowed to handle any of the guns (provided I was wearing gloves).

    Some sort of target gun. It was incredibly heavy.
    The barrel of another target rifle. Also incredibly heavy.
