I have uploaded a bunch of photos from today's trip to Louisville.

Tomorrow night I'll post up pictures from the members meeting and the banquet.

Enjoy!

ETA:  Just added the Saturday pictures.  These are the expo hall, member's meeting, and banquet.

At the members meeting they honor the youngest & oldest life member in attendance.  The winner for the past dozen or so years, Claude from Wisconsin, passed last year  

The banquet honored Bobby Jindal for his work on 2AM issues in Congress and as Governor.  Glenn Beck was the speaker, and he totally kicked ass!

Sweet.  Wish I could have made it this year.

I wish I could go to a damn gun convention. They never have any near me.

What exactly is the NRA show?  Is it like the Shot Show except anyone can go?
Link Posted: 5/17/2008 12:05:02 AM EDT
Yeah kind of. Free for members. I have not been to the SHOT show, so I can't really compare them BTW I've seen LOTS of Texas tags at the show and in the campgrounds. The camp owner said 80% of the people here are here for the NRA meetings/convention.

It was there.  It was my first time to handle one and I was surprised at how light it was.  Feels much lighter than the SCAR.

The Bushmaster rep said they would be on the market 1st quarter 2009.

I call photoshops on the EBR pics. All the arfcommandos say the NRA is a Fudd org and hates EBR's.


ETA just saw the FUD pic?

Shamless BUMP for Saturday pictures notification.
Link Posted: 5/18/2008 5:15:16 PM EDT
I just got back, will post pics later tonite.

By far one of the best events I have ever attended!  Met Mr. Lapierre, The Gunny, The Nuge, Oliver North, etc.  At least half of the guns at the Expo Center were black rifles.  Glen Beck was fantastic!  My hope has been restored!!  Absolutely an unbelievable weekend!

w00t!

ETA:  Half way through the Annual meeting on Saturday, I was so damn motivated/pumped that I upgraded to Life Member!!

I am ashamed to say that I've been an NRA member for over 30 years and a life member for over 25 years and have never been to an NRA convention.

However, retirement is a mere three years away and I intend to do more shooting, traveling and combining the both. I intend to also do the NRA thing.
