Each episode will feature an outstanding firearm auctioned by Rock Island Auction Company as well as many guns from everyday collectors. Appearing in these segments will be RIAC Owner Pat Hogan and his son, Director of Auction Services Kevin Hogan.
“It’s an honor to be working so closely with the NRA and the National Firearms Museum,” said the senior Hogan. “It’s easy to feel an immediate kinship with these two organizations who share our respect and intense fascination for beautiful and historic firearms.”
National Firearms Museum Director Jim Supica and Senior Curator Phil Schreier, with their 50 years of combined firearms expertise, will evaluate firearms brought to them at show from around the country and discuss the guns’ history, significance, and authenticity or lack thereof. Collectors appearing on the show find out if their treasured pieces are duds or diamonds in the rough. The duo encounters firearms from the odd to the ornate, and will reveal what makes an old gun unique and how to preserve its value.
The show will also examine historic and fascinating arms from the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum at the Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, Missouri, in segments called Museum Minute.
“The history of firearms technology and their role in world history is extraordinary,” said Supica. “You never know what has been hiding in someone’s firearms collection, just waiting to be discovered.”
