As I’m writing this, the Cody Firearms Museum here at the Center of the West has just begun preparing the top floor for its big renovation. A temporary exhibit and some placement of guns throughout the other museums will have to tide us all over until that’s complete. The new museum will open next year and bring with it new representations of firearms and firearms history. At the same time, I’m in the middle of my last week in this internship, racing to get this last article done before Friday (tell me, reader, did I succeed?). So, as the CFM begins its transition and my time here draws to a close, let me reflect on questions that pertain to both.
