    Today my friends and I visited the Frazier International Arms & History Museum in downtown Louisville, KY. If you haven't already guessed it, it is a museum dedicated to weaponry and if you're near the Louisville area and enjoy weapons, then I highly suggest you stop in. You'll have to forgive my crappy photography skills, but here are some pics:

    Neat huh???

    I had the pleasure of an "Inside the ropes" tour about 3 yrs ago, while the museum was being completed. My son Chris did some of the exhibits and took me through with a stern "DAD, DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING!!!" I returned about a year later and took my step dad and my 92 yr old best friend through it. It was/is awesome! The live actors that perform there bring another different dimension to the museum expirence. If your in town, don't miss it!!!

    A photography tip: If you turn off the flash, you will not have to worry about the glare off the case glass. The button on digital looks like a little lightening bolt. You can cycle through the flash settings with it. You will have to hold really still though. The shutter stays open longer and the image will end up blurry if you move. The less light there is, the longer the shutter will be open.

    Practice with a camera a little bit, so you can get the hang of it. Digital cameras are a blessing when it comes to learning a camera's function.

    Good luck. Thanks for posting too. I will have to check the place out, next time I am in Louisville. I am from Mayfield.

    I couldn't figure out how to turn it off the flash for the longest time. Happily I turned a knob and the flash stopped. New fangled technology and me don't agree very well (like the TV DVR, cell phones, etc--and I'm only 24).

    Nice pics - thanks for posting. You'd enjoy the Cody Firearms Museum if you ever get out in the middle of Wyoming. (all the museums in the Buffalo Bill Historical Center are great)

    I've never heard of it before, but Ft. Knox is not far from me at all so I'm gonna look into that.

    Hey!!!

    Is that one pic with the Scotsman and Redcoats a sim of Culloden?
    Sure looks like it.
    A good majority of my ancestors and relatives were killed off in that battle.
    The crazy gene lives on, I guess.
