Arsenals of History is an annual symposium of firearms museum, and met this year at the newly renovated Cody Firearms Museum (https://centerofthewest.org/explore/firearms/). The theme of this year’s symposium was social media and museums. This presentation was given by Danny Michael, Assistant Curator for he Cody Firearms Museum. Video games today are a massive influence on much of society, and today’s big-name games (like Battlefield One and Call of Duty) often include quite accurate representations of historical firearms. How can a museum best cater to the interest of gamers who find themselves looking at the real-world models of those game elements? Should museums recognize this at all? What are some options and potential practices?

At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
