The NRA Whittington Center is a center of education through our Bud and Willa Eyman Research Library which is dedicated to the Second Amendment, gunsmithing, hunting, self defense, and firearms history.
Located next to the Frank Brownell Museum of the Southwest, the library plays an important role in educating the public about the importance of the Second Amendment to our shooting freedoms, our hunting freedoms, and indeed, all our freedoms afforded us in the Bill of Rights.
The Library has a spectacular collection of books on everything you want to know about firearms and the Second Amendment in general, and is a magnificent resource for history buffs, researchers, and anyone interested in the shooting sports.
