NRA Show Wrap Up

NRA Banquet 
Finally back home from the Show season.  The cumulation of Curves in Camo second season working the outdoor show circuit was the NRA Annual  Meeting and Exhibits.  I had never attended a NRA Annual Meeting before.  I learned how to shoot through the NRA youth shooting programs years ago.  Growing up in a house with my dad, a proud life member of the NRA since the 1950's, I know the importance of keeping and bearing arms.
Myself with Joe Sarafini (Top Shot season 2) and Iain Harrison (Top Shot Season 1-winner)
 The first time my dad instructed me in shooting a handgun safely was exciting.  36 years later to attend the NRA Annual Meeting was a treat.  Seeing all of the new products available this year, speaking with others that share my passion for firearm ownership and hunting, and hearing others stories of their adventures in the field was something I want to repeat next year and every year after.  Something interesting occurred interacting with other enthusiasts during the week in St Louis.  The number of older women wanting to tweak performance when slug gun hunting was incredible.  I spoke to countless women and men wishing to tune in their slug guns for greater accuracy and consistent performance.  I was able to share the unique attributes of Lightfield Slugs to achieve those expectations.
The NRA gives its members access to this information all in one place, putting on a heck of party along the way.  On my to do list for next year will be to attend the foundation dinner again, it was a fabulous dinner and auction.  I would also like to go to the Ladies Luncheon.  So many women shared stories of how fabulous the luncheon was this year I don't want to miss it the next time I attend.
If you are a member of the NRA attend the meeting and enjoy the experience of 73,000+ like minded individuals.

Next year the show will be in Houston, Texas May 3-5.
