Serenity at The National Firearms Museum - Hollywood Guns Exhibit

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Feb 20, 2012 / 4 COMMENTS


 

A gallery of the NRA's National Firearms Museum, located in Fairfax, Virginia, is dedicated to a special exhibit called "Hoolywood Guns" which, according to the introduction message,  "offers a firsthand glimpse at some of the most famous firearms on the silver screen over the past 70 years".

Serenity is featured in this exhibit with a picture of River Tam on the movie poster and Captain Mal prop gun.

Wether you're a gun person or not, i think all movie goers will find this introductory video to the "Hoolywood Guns" exhibit interesting.
Just for the anecdote, the narrator is standing in front of the Serenity picture and props (see screencaps).

"In Firefly 1x14 'Objects in Space', River gets hold of a nickel-plated Desert Eagle Mark VII, fully loaded and safety off, but no round chambered as Mal had confirmed. It was never fully explained how she obtained it, as it was supposedly locked in Jayne's (Adam Baldwin) room."

"The Star Firestar M-45 with a custom longslide is the handgun River took from a frightened Kaylee (Jewel Staite) to shoot the 3 Skyplex guards before stating, "No power in the 'verse can stop me"." in Firefly 1x10 'War Stories'.

Luke Skywalker's spare light saber is displayed -- not a firearm, however the NRA was evidently willing to bend the rules to link itself to the Star Wars generation smile

Thanks for posting this Chris. I guess this is a museum that has the philosophy that if a weapon can kill and it can be hand held, then it belongs in their collection even if it is an imaginary one. I wonder what that says about how much science fiction has become part of what we accept as credible?

Don't want to sound like a fanatic but a museum about movies which doesn't contain something SW is not credible tongue

BTW this perfectly demonstrates one thing about GL and his creation which I think nobody managed to do again ever since.

SW managed to somehow break through the wall which separates sci-fi and general audience and have a massive following in both groups.

Many people who couldn't sit through even the first 5 minutes of Star Trek for example or any other sci-fi loves SW and seen it numerous times. SW became somehow a distinct genre in itself and I don't have any idea how it managed to do this in such scale despite all my years of devoted following. I think it has to do more with extremely lucky timing.

Since you love SW that much, here's two pictures from the lighsaber next to the Serenity movie poster (click for larger size):
