Gun Museum in Cody, Wyoming. Worth a visit??

My Sig other and I are going on a road trip to Yellowstone National Park in a couple of weeks, and it looks like we'll stay in Cody, Wyoming for a couple of days. There is a Firearms Museum as a part of the 5 museum Buffalo Bill Historical Center which claims to have "the most comprehensive assemblage of American firearms in the world." Is this worth a visit? Has anyone been there?

I haven't been, but it's on "The List." It is indeed reputed to have one of the finest collections of rare and historic firearms in the world. For instance, it contains one of fewer than a dozen surviving Pedersen Devices, the only known surviving example of a Japanese M1 clone produced in a batch of ten test examples in the closing days of the war, and hundreds of other examples of extremely rare or historically significant firearms. Definitely worth the trip.

Thanks for the feedback. After a trip down Google Lane I now know what a Pedersen Device is. Ingenious. Looked kind of awkward in the pictures, though. My interest in guns has waned somewhat over the years, but my first job -at about age 14- was at a gun club. I sat at a high table and pushed the button that threw the rock out of the trap or skeet house. There are about a hundred different squacks, grunts, moans, yelps, yips, yaps, etc that mean "pull!" Each shooter has his own signature call. I also kept the score sheet, so most everybody was nice to me.
Employees could shoot for free during slow times and I got to be fairly good. I broke 25 straight shooting skeet, (with a 20 gauge) but never made 50 straight. Never even made 25 straight in trap. Skeet was easier for me.

Funny, I was thinking about moving to Cody in a few years. Fitting that it has this museum.

I'll post a report after I get back. You can reevaluate your Cody pendency.
