SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – -(Ammoland.com)- On Aug. 2, 2013, the National Rifle Association will celebrate the grand opening of the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum, which is located at the Bass Pro Shops store in Springfield, Mo.

“We are thrilled to bring such a wonderful collection of firearms to Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World,” said NRA museum director Jim Supica.

“Featuring treasured guns from the NRA collection along with special exhibits from Remington and others, this museum promises to showcase a sporting arms collection the world has never seen.”

Covering approximately 7,500 square feet, the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum brings to life an illustration of hunting, conservation and freedom. With more than a thousand guns on display, the exhibits include original prototypes and paintings from the Remington Arms Company, shotguns from the American Trapshooting Association’s Hall of Fame, and the full collection of guns from the Pachmayr Foundation.

“Visitors to the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum are in for a treat. They’ll see firearms that figure significantly in the history of our country and trace the evolution of hunting and conservation,” said Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris.

“This museum houses a fantastic collection, from the firearms of Theodore Roosevelt and John Wayne to historic U.S. military pistols and engraved Colt revolvers of the Old West. It has something for every firearms enthusiast.”

To see this one-of-a-kind collection, come to the grand opening of the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, Mo., on Aug. 2. In addition, Bass Pro Shops’ Fall Hunting Classic begins Aug. 2, featuring free seminars on hunting basics from the pros and a Preferred Rewards Night on opening night.

The museum, which is located at 1935 S. Campbell in Springfield, Mo., will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. with extended hours during the Fall Hunting Classic. Plus, museum-goers can take advantage of free admission and parking. For more information about the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum, visit http://www.basspro.com/nramuseum.
