I have to speak up for museum professionals, my friends. Would you let any old Joe Schmoe off the street open up your gun cabinet at home and start monkeying around with your weapons? If you're honest with yourself, I'd think of course you wouldn't, you don't know them. We do have to protect our collections, that's one of the Museum's jobs, after all.
Since you're so interested, I sincerely encourage you to sign up to be a docent at your local history museum. You're much more likely to get invited to see what's in our actual gun vault - instead of the 1% that we have room to display to the public - if I actually know who you are and we have some sort of relationship.
Also, volunteer docents of course don't know everything, who does and how could they? But they do what they can and please recognize that they are generously giving of their time to do that.
