Princess Diana’s 1981 Royal Wedding Shotgun will also be on display (courtesy of the NRA National Firearms Museum) during exhibit hall hours.
The Westley Richards 12-gauge side-by-side shotgun was created in Birmingham, England, for the 1981 nuptials of Lady Diana Spencer and HRH Prince Charles, Prince of Wales. This exquisite firearm was engraved by the Brown Brothers with gold crests and floral accents. The British royal seal and other heraldic emblems of the couple are included in the decoration. It’s something you’ll definitely want an up-close look at!

Join us for a no-holds-barred panel discussion in which you will meet the leaders of some of the largest and most active gun groups for women who, through their individual platforms, are at the forefront of recruiting, motivating, and training thousands of American women gun owners across the country every year. We hope to see you in room 371!
