You'd have to have it in Vegas. Not enough all-you-can-eat buffets anywhere else on the planet.

It would be interesting to say the least... I would do it if I could afford the trip.

And you think you hear a load of BS at gunshows? Can you imagine the crap the internet special forces guys would spew forth at such a gathering?

Don't we have enough Conventions? I mean with SHOT and the NRA convention I'd say thats plenty of time off work every year.

As for doing something in each state for AR15.com member that would be cool. Maybe a weekend meet and greet with some range time.

It should involve a chili cookoff, well two really, one for texans, and one for people who like good chili.

Too bad there are too few people to help organize and too few people who will show up. I enjoy the hell out of meeting other arfcomers.

I awlays thought it was "gun-buy-AR"

Eastern/Midwest folks often assemble at Bulletfest, but it's not an Arfcom convention per se. We usually get 30 or more every year, sometimes a lot more.

I'd attend a Black Rifle Convention if it was held.

This seems like a bad idea, that seems like it would bring every ATF, FBI, and Homeland Security agent running to see whose terroristic weapons they could confiscate. Maybe not though, some of them might fit right in. Who knows.

It is too much work with too few volunteers to do the work--and too few who actually show up. The logistics are a nightmare and I doubt it will happen again because of this.


We should put on another BRC somewher by Berry (Pasa)

I went to the first one but idnt really know anyone there besides AntiUSSA .

ETA- We could just make it local IL people and who ever else wants to show up.

No worries - there's plenty of LE here.

As stated above, I doubt another national gathering would happen soon. Your best bet is to organize local events through your hometown forums. People have made very strong friendships from this website - many of them from just across town. The folks here are just your average joes from society who happen to enjoy the exact same things you do. What better group of people could you imagine meeting?


So true..I spent the weekend with a bunch of Arfcommers on the Florida hometown forum on a camp and shoot....a great time and good people.
Its cool to put real names to screen names and faces to the real names...Sure is an eye opener in some cases.
