On this edition of Curator's Corner, John Popp speaks with National Firearms Museum Assistant Curator Matt Sharpe to learn more about the Nock Volley gun that is currently on display in the Hollywood Guns Exhibit. Featured on a previous Curator's Corner, the 7-barrelled "one-shot wonder" from the 1960 movie The Alamo was well over 100 years old when it was used in the film. Since that segment, Sharp has had the opportunity to fire the massive firearm, and he discusses the unique and powerful experience of shooting (and braving the recoil) of this weapon. Originally aired 8/11/2011.
