American Rifleman Special Sessions

While you are at the NRA Annual Meetings in Houston, Texas, I encourage you to take a break from the show floor and attend two special events. Noted sniping authority Maj. John L. Plaster, U.S. Army (Ret.), and historian Martin K.A. Morgan are onboard for two American Rifleman Special Sessions of tremendous interest to NRA members.

World War II Heroes to Sign Books/DVDs at Seminar

At American Rifleman’s seminar “The Greatest Pistol in the World: 100 Years of the U. S. Model of 1911,” two distinguished World War II veterans who will speak during the session, also will be available before and after the presentation to sign books, DVDs and autographs.

Goodbye, Don Burgett

American Rifleman lost a friend, and America lost a hero, with the passing of Don Burgett.

Allied Air Assault: The Guns of Operation Varsity

Operation Varsity was the last Allied air assault of World War II, and the troops involved used the best firearms that could be had in March 1945.

Hotter Than The Hinges Of Hell's Gates–Don Burgett

Donald R. Burgett was a 19-year-old paratrooper who dropped into Normandy in the early morning of June 6, 1944, with an M1 Garand and a U.S. M1911 pistol. He fought through France, Holland, Belgium and Germany, ending the war at Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest. An NRA Life member, Burgett was NRA’s guest at its 140th Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Pittsburgh, Pa.

Arms of American Airborne

Whether dropped deep behind enemy lines or fighting as conventional infantry, American airborne troopers during World War II trusted their lives to their rifles, pistols, submachine guns and automatic rifles.

The Sterling: Britain’s Cold War Submachine Gun

The Sterling submachine gun saw action in more than 40 conflicts, well earning its place as one of Britain's most iconic Cold War weapons.

D-Day + 75: Arms of the Airborne

Seventy-five years ago, Allied troops invaded Hitler’s “Fortress Europe” to bring an end to Nazi tyranny, and many of them arrived by parachute or glider. They were the men of the British and American airborne, and they were well-armed indeed.
