Rock Island Arsnel


Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where exactly to post this question. Obviously, I settled on here to start with.

 

If my memory serves, sometime in the past I heard of historical tours, by appointment, at RIA. I have been on their web site but could find no reference to any such activities. Does anyone know if this is true and if it is still being conducted?

 

I am making a trip, next spring, up that way and would love to take such a tour if possible.

 

Thanks,

 

Robert

I live about 90 miles east in north central Illinoistan.

 

The RIA has a most excellent museum whih chronicles both the history of the arsenal and also all (and I mean all) US military arms. It is an excellent way to spend four or five hours.

 

Here's a link to the museum:

I believe many of today's social ills and political party bickering could be solved by the simple implementation of legalized dueling.
