Articles by Doug Wicklund
Doug Wicklund has been called the "Gun Whisperer" for his insightful examinations of antique arms across the nation and, after more than 24 years in NRA employ, this senior curator for the NRA Museums has watched the galleries grow out of the old NRA Headquarters in Washington, DC to the new facility in Fairfax, Virginia. Receiving graduate and undergraduate degrees in museum studies, archaeology and anthropology from George Washington University, Doug previously worked with the National Park Service and Smithsonian Institution before coming to the National Rifle Association in 1986.
Doug is an assistant technical editor for American Rifleman magazine who also serves as editor for the "NRA Firearms Fact Book" during this tenure. He contributes a monthly feature on the National Firearms Museum collections to America's 1st Freedom magazine. Additionally, he has also authored dozens of articles appearing in America's Civil War , American Rifleman and other magazines.
Occasional work with Internet forums and national forensic agencies, plus periodic travel to gun shows and other collector activities keep Doug well occupied when not coordinating the day-to-day duties of operating the museum galleries and maintaining a collection of more than 5,000 arms of all historical periods. His current favorite piece in the collection may be his great-grandfather's engraved Merwin & Hulbert revolver, a piece Doug learned to clean at 7 years of age.
The Wicklund home in northern Virginia reflects the lifestyle of a shooter of modern tactical arms, a collector of Civil War relics and a sometimes hunter. It is also filled with his wife's collections of tapestries and quilts, as well as two young sons who delight in collecting coins, arrowheads and pottery. While there are no pets, Doug does own two Jeeps which are considered family members.
