Throughout American history, the liberty of our citizens has been hard-won by our brave Armed Forces. In the hands of patriots, firearms have defended our rights and facilitated the pursuit of happiness for generations. Our exclusive NRA prints celebrate just a few of the many rifles and handguns that have proven vital to our country’s ongoing quest for Freedom. From the American Revolution to the present War in Iraq, you can actually see firearms technology as it has evolved. Curators at the National Firearms Museum identified a representative rifle and handgun from each of 9 major U.S. conflicts. Each firearm is presented in silhouette, accompanied by a description of its caliber and the conflicts where it had its greatest impact.
