NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits Roundup

posted on May 25, 2016

The 145th NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits have come and gone. Official estimates say more than 80,000 NRA members packed the Kentucky Exposition Center over the weekend, and we can't thank y'all enough. Further, we're looking forward to seeing everyone again next year, when the show travels to Atlanta.

The team was working hard all weekend—that much, we can assure you. Odds are, you crossed paths with our team without ever noticing it. Whether we were helping to coordinate a seminar, minding the NRA booth or scoping out some of the industry's newest wares, it was a heck of a busy weekend. Below you'll find links to the assorted coverage our team produced from the floor in Louisville. We encourage you to check everything out—and keep an eye out for future coverage of at least a few of the products mentioned in future print installments of American Hunter!
