Cody, Wyoming – -(Ammoland.com)-  Ashley Hlebinsky will take over the curatorial reins at the renowned Cody Firearms Museum of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming.

A Billings Gazette story notes that Hlebinsky is the first female firearms curator in the country.

Hlebinsky, 25, assumes the position her mentor and museum curator Warren Newman held for many years before retiring.

A Pittsburgh native who previously worked at the Smithsonian Museum, Hlebinsky will oversee a collection of 7,000 firearms and 30,000 firearms-related artifacts.

In a statement, Bruce Eldredge, the center's executive director and CEO, said, “We have every confidence in Ashley's ability to carry out the plans for the Firearms Museum going forward.”

The museum will have a booth at the 2015 SHOT Show.
