Fairfax, VA – -( On all our bucket lists is a visit (or two) to an NRA Firearms Museum (or three). Holiday season is a great time to go. Get the children out of the house to enjoy firearms history.

The NRA Museums are home to the finest firearms collection in the world. The National Firearms Museum, at the NRA Headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, details and examines the nearly 700-year history of firearms with a special emphasis on firearms, freedom, and the American experience.

My favorite the National Sporting Arms Museum, at the Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, Missouri, as it explores and exhibits the historical development of hunting arms in America from the earliest explorers to modern day, with a focus on hunting, conservation, and freedom. Make it your goal to vist all three in the next year.

  • NRA National Firearms Museum is in Fairfax VA, at NRA Headquarters, only 20 minutes outside of Washington DC. (As long as you’re there, stop by the NRA Range.)
  • National Sporting Arms Museum is in Bass Pro Shops in Springfield MO includes lots of Archery history.
  • Frank Brownell Firearms Museum of the Southwest is at the Whittington Center, Raton, NM.

NRA Meuseum admission is free (to you). Check their website or Facebook page to confirm hours. Note they are closed on the holiday days.

Merry Christmas. Do something fun before you go back to work and school.

NRA: Not Really Activists, Negotiating Rights Away. I guess the NRA needs more money, they’re trying to draw in the fudds with “FREE” museum visits so they can pitch NRA membership/donations/estate endowments, etc. and get the fudds to cough up more money!

Hey Wayne, how much did you make last year?? Have you told your members??


Let me guess Will. Never hunted your own food, never served in the military, but will ALWAYS count on others to provide the security and nutrition you require. Hope we meet when the SHTF.


WF: I have hunted for food.
I would love to know how much the “leaders” of the NRA make in one year.
I am VERY disappointed that the NRA, of which I AM a member, is involved with WHITTLING AWAY my Second Amendment RIGHTS.
The Second Amendment states it EXPLICITLY – – “SHALL NO BE INFRINGED”.
Perhaps the “leaders” in the NRA need to take a REFRESHER course in the American LANGUAGE – – ENGLISH, but also a basic course in OUR CONSTITUTION.

To see Negotiating Rights Away’s copy of the Infringed Second Amendment,in taters and shreds,Not a chance.
