Winchester Model 70 Rifle - It’s been called the “Rifleman’s Rifle” and our GOTD has a few miles behind it, despite being basically still in new condition. This Featherweight .308 example, still bearing its original factory “hang tags” is featured at the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, MO.

In 1937/38 as WWII was about to break out, Louvre director Jacques Jaujard decided to evacuate the museums collections. Most of the pieces got evacuated except for the biggest ones, which were protected by sand bags in the galleries. The artworks got sent away, at first to the castle of Chambord, then moved around different castles in a quite confusing way to keep the German enemy confused. The emptied museum reopened under the occupation, mostly showing copies of the originals.

Marston Three Barrel Derringer - About 1,500 derringers in .22 caliber were produced by William W. Marston of New York City from 1858 to 1864. His design included two unusual features: a selector switch to choose which barrel to fire and also a sliding knife that mounted on the side of the barrels. While our example is missing the blade (anybody got a spare?), our selector still functions normally and is set up for barrel #2 at present. NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, VA
