In this edition of The Gun Vault, Miss Ashley Hlebinsky, Robert W. Woodruff Curator at the Cody Firearms Museum, highlights a collection of world record setting firearms used by champion shooter Tom Knapp including the firearm he used to set his first world record, the Benelli M1 Super 90. Hlebinsky also shows us Knapp’s first gun, a Daisy N0. 25 Air rifle given to him as a child.

And let me be the first to say, both personally as well as on behalf of the Bearing Arms staff (me and Bob), congratulations to Ashley on her recent engagement to Mark Hanish! Wishing the two of you many years of wedded bliss and camo-covered happy memories. ALL THE BEST!! #FinallyYourWedding #CantBelieveIKeptMyMouthShutThatLong
