On this edition of Curator's Corner, John Popp joins National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Phil Schreier to showcase one of the displays in the new Robert E. Petersen Gallery. The featured case includes President John F. Kennedy's New Frontier Colt, the only known cased set of four Colt Single Actions and the infamous Vampire Hunter's Colt Detective Special. The "Vampire Gun" is the only Colt Detective Special that is entirely silver-plated to suit any vampire hunter's hunting needs. It also includes several fascinating accessories including bullets carved into the shape of vampire heads, a mirror, a crucifix engraving, a stake-shaped attachment and more!
