Annie Oakley’s incredible accuracy led to a starring role in Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show and fame as America’s first female sharpshooter. Nicknamed "Little Miss Sure Shot," her aim was so precise that she once knocked ashes off a cigar held by German Kaiser Wilhelm II. Her gold-washed Smith & Wesson revolver was made in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1881 and she later gave it to Bernard B. Bulawa, an NRA Life Member and noted marksman who had won many national competitions. This gun can be seen at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
This gold-washed Smith & Wesson revolver was once owned by renowned exhibition shooter Annie Oakley.
