On this edition of Curator's Corner, National Firearms Museum Senior Curator Phil Schreier joins John Popp and Dr. William Dierkes from Pryor, Oklahoma at Wanenmacher's Arms Show in Tulsa. Dr. Dierkes, a Vietnam War veteran, shows Schreier and Popp a Belgian double-barreled percussion shotgun that belonged to his great grandfather. He says his father used it to hunt in the early 1900s, and the gun may have an indirect historical link to President Abraham Lincoln. Originally aired 2/17/2011.
