The Cody Culture Club moves to the Cody Firearms Experience for its March program, The Evolution of the Firearm and the Hunter with Ashley Hlebinsky and Paul Brock. The event takes place on Thursday, March 16, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Cody Firearms Experience, 142 West Yellowstone Avenue.
Hlebinsky, the Robert W. Woodruff Curator of the Cody Firearms Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, and Brock, General Manager at the Cody Firearms Experience, present an introduction to the history of the firearm from the flintlock to the modern-day sporting rifles. The program also explores man’s impact on wildlife and how hunters led the effort for today’s wildlife conservation.
In addition to the program, the evening also includes appetizers and a cash bar. The Cody Firearms Experience offers the opportunity to shoot historic firearms for a special rate at this event (not included in the ticket price). Those who wish to shoot must do so before visiting the bar.
Tickets, available at the door, are $20 per person. This is the third of four Cody Culture Club programs in 2017; the final event this spring takes place at Old Trail Town on April 20, when Clay Gibbons presents The West as it Was.
