People of the NRA Annual Meeting

Elvis is risen! At the NRA Annual Meeting...

I have a serious love/hate relationship with the NRA Annual Meeting. The hate part is easy – it’s always a logistical nightmare. Hosted in cities that are completely unprepared for 75,000 instant hotel-stayers, hotel rape is rampant. If you can find a room downtown, it’ll cost ya north of $300 a night for a flea […]

New and Unusual Gear From the 2015 NRA Annual Meeting

Sig Sauer makes air guns? Why yes, they do.

One of my favorite NRA Annual Meeting activities is to dash through the trade show aisles at .0007 miles per hour (due to the crowds) and find new guns, gear, and accessory products. Many of them are announced via press releases and media emails as the show begins, but sometimes you stumble onto new things […]

The NRA Annual Meeting is rapidly approaching, and this year, it’s in Nashville, TN. That happens to be right in online ammo retailer LuckyGunner’s backyard. To celebrate, they’re giving away stuff including a $500 LuckyGunner gift card. If you win, who knows, you might even be able to use your winning certificate to buy .22LR […]

You Might Be A Gun Control Activist If…

Gun-Control-911

You might be a gun control activist if… You think Shannon watts makes a lot of sense if people would just listen to her. You think that Shannon could deliver her message more effectively if she talked slow and loud, like you do when visiting foreign countries. You’ve had a pot luck supper at Michael […]

5 Million Freakin’ People vs. Moms Demand Bloomberg Alimony Checks

Breaking news! The White House released a new report suggesting slight statistical corrections to previous figures. Earlier this year, Vice President Biden claimed that 90% of Americans support increased background checks. The new findings indicate that 90% of Americans actually ATTENDED the recent NRA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana. You heard it here first folks. […]

The NRA Annual Meeting: 75,000 Friends and Hundreds of Toys

The NRA Annual Meeting 2014, Indianapolis, IN.

I love the NRA annual meeting. You would think a gathering of more than 75,000 people couldn’t be a more polite undertaking than a Miss Manners Impersonator convention, but it is. You can’t go 10 feet without hearing one or more of the following: Please. Thank you. Sir. Ma’am. Pardon me! Have a nice day! […]

Win a Wilson Combat 1911 From Brownells

Ryan models the Brownell's custom Wilson Combat CQB 1911. That's OK though as I don't think he's eligible to win.

At the recent NRA annual meeting, the Brownells booth was busier than the door of Michael Moore’s refrigerator. Fortunately, the inside of the Brownells booth was a whole lot safer than the contents of Mikey’s Frigidaire. The Brownells team is nice, respectful and knowledgable, unlike the other extreme presented here. Why the crowd? Brownells is […]

NRA Annual Meeting, Day 2: The Superheroes Arrive

#BerettaHeroes NRA Annual Meeting

No worries folks, Gotham and Indianapolis are both safe… Thanks to a couple of #BerettaHeroes who arrived on the scene of the second day of the NRA Annual meeting to make sure no dastardly villains ruined the event. Josh and Jack, both from the Great State of Indiana, made a brief appearance at the Beretta […]

NRA Annual Meeting Day 1

Can you tell the NRA is in town?

It’s that time of year again. We’re at the National Rifle Association Annual Meeting in beautiful downtown Indianapolis. I’ve not been to Indianapolis before, but will be back. The downtown area is fantastic. It’s filled with old buildings refurbished with modern interiors. Stores, restaurants and hangouts – it’s a great town for a convention. Indianapolis […]
