About Jim Supica

Jim Supica recently retired as Director of the NRA Museums Division, where he co-authored the just-released Illustrated History of Firearms, 2nd Edition, with NRA Museum Senior Curators Phil Schreier and Doug Wicklund.  The 1st Edition of this book was the best-selling firearms book of all time, and the new 2nd Edition is greatly expanded.

Jim has co-authored eight books and written numerous articles on firearms history and gun collecting.  He is the new Editor of Standard Catalog of Firearms.  On television, he has co-hosted six seasons of NRA Gun Gurus and NRA Guns & Gold, and regularly appears on other national firearms-related shows such as Outdoor Channel’s Gun Stories.

Jim is an antique firearms collector and consultant.  He’s a former member of the NRA Board of Directors.  He holds Juris Doctorate and Bachelor’s degrees from the University of Kansas.  He and Eve have moved from the DC area back to their home in Olathe Kansas.

Since “retirement” Jim has a few irons on the fire:

  • Gun Digest has hired me as Editor of Standard Catalog of Firearms for the 31st Edition (2021).  Those revisions and updates are keeping me busy right now, researching current gun values for this popular price guide and consulting expert collectors and dealers around the country.
  • I’m also appearing on the next season of Gun Stories, which should air in early 2021.
  • I’ll be doing firearms collection consulting and appraisals.  I’ll probably ease my way back into select consignment sales, particularly for collectors who want help liquidating their collections.
  • This Fall, I’ll tentatively be re-launching my old website, ArmchairGunShow.com and/or the new GunHeritage.com,
