I was watching Only In America on the History Channel, Larry the Cable Guy visited the NRA in Virginia. They opened the museum vaults and they showed John Alden's (from the Mayflower) wheel-lock musket. One of the oldest fire arms in America in existance. I didn't know it existed until now. What a thrill it was to see my great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather's personal firearm. Wow.
