Crowds continued to fill the halls during day two of the Great American Outdoor Show, which included top-rate seminars, celebrity appearances and plenty of activities for kids. See for yourself with this photo gallery.
Pennsylvania leaders joined with NRA officers to officially open the first Great American Outdoor Show. Taking part in the ribbon cutting were (from left): Hershey Harrisburg Regional Visitors Bureau President Mary Smith; NRA Past President David Keene; NRA First Vice President Alan Cors; NRA President James W. Porter; Pennsylvania Governor Thomas Corbett; Dauphin County Commissioner Jeff Haste; and Pete Brownell, NRA Board member and president of Brownells. Carrying on the tradition of America's grandest outdoor-sports show with hundreds of hunting, shooting, fishing, boating and camping exhibits, the NRA-operated show will run from Feb. 1 to 9 at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg.
The Kids Fun Zone, a new GAOS feature this year, offers many activities, including a chance for a couple of cowgirls to work on their roping skills. The Kids Fun Zone, a new GAOS feature this year, offers many activities, including a chance for a couple of cowgirls to work on their roping skills.
The Wall of Guns is a wildly popular fundraising game at many NRA events, and now at the GAOS as well. And why not? A $20 ticket gives players a great chance to win from a number of in-demand models. Funds raised for The National NRA Foundation go to shooting education.
Top-rate seminars—free to attendees—address a mix of interests, ranging from tips from celebrity hunters to collegiate shooting opportunities to this course on How to Draw from Concealed Carry, presented by pro instructor Michael Hughes from NextLevel Training.
