"We've got your six." That's what Army Chief of Staff General Leominster said upon presentation of this serial number six M14 rifle to the NRA in 1960. As directions once corresponded to hours on the clock — 12 being forward and six back — anyone behind you was deemed "at your six." So to have someone's six was to have their back, defending and protecting at all cost. To General Leominster, that was the highest compliment he could pay the NRA. The M14 is one of the many treasures at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
