It's the first in a new series of Curator's Corner with NRA Museums firearms specialist Logan Metesh and John Popp. They examine a special Smith & Wesson Model 629 with ivory grips, gold inlay and exquisite engraving of animals and the Smith & Wesson logo. It was created in 1979 for NRA board member, Second Amendment advocate and rock legend Ted Nugent. It bears his name. It is on loan as part of the Artistry in Arms exhibit at the museum. Logan describes how he first met Uncle Ted as a boy.
