Larry Floyd, gun collector/historian, will be returning with an exciting presentation on  "The Hand Gun: Western Fact and Western Film”, a comparison of fact & fiction on guns used in movies. Larry will also provide background on many of the guns housed in the museum’s collection.

The presentation will consist of a display with comments of handguns and holsters used in the “West” of the 19th Century and how Hollywood interpreted their use in movies of the 20th Century. After the presentation those attending will be invited to take a closer look and hold a weapon if they so desire. Question will be entertained at any time during the presentation
