Antique (gun) Roadshow in Medora, North Dakota is coming June 28th

The Shooting Wire is reporting that North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame is going to be hosting the National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Doug Wicklund June 28th and he will be appraising heirloom firearms. Mr. Wicklund has been on the History Channel several times being one of the major authorities on historic firearms.

This a joint effort between the NRA and the North Dakota Historical Society. The Hall of Fame is having an exhibition this summer dealing with historic North Dakota firearms including a rifle that was used at the Little Bighorn June 25, 1876, since he rode out of Ft. Abraham Lincoln, which was Southwest of Bismark, Dakota Territory it is an important piece of history to all Dakotans. The exhibition will also include one of Teddy Roosevelt's hunting rifles and other the firearms of our States' settlers.

This is a great opportunity to celebrate and learn more about who we are as Americans and Dakotans.
