There may be only one thing that's as educational for the NRA family as visiting one of the NRA Museums, and that's the latest edition of The Illustrated History of Firearms. This full-color, hardcover, 320-page work features more than 1,700 photos compiled by NRA Museums curators Jim Supica, Doug Wicklund and Philip Schreier.

This follow-up to the best-selling original NRA Museums book, produced in partnership with Gun Digest Media, includes 300 photos more than the original, plus dozens of new profiles of the people who influenced firearms development. The stories of the guns they created, refined, and lived and died with provide readers with a new appreciation for the role that guns have played in world history.

Beautifully rendered images and data on old, new and currently manufactured firearms that have changed history adorn every page. Covering the earliest matchlocks to modern match-grade superguns and everything in between, The Illustrated History of Firearms provides a fascinating education on how the guns evolved, where they originated and how they looked and worked.

The Illustrated History of Firearms, 2nd Edition is available at gundigeststore.com, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and most other major booksellers for $39.99.
