Due to concern over the safety of our NRA family and community, we regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel the 2021 Annual Meeting & Exhibits. This cancellation applies to all events and meetings that were scheduled in Houston. We will provide future notification regarding a rescheduled date for the annual Meeting of Members.
The 146th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits are upon us. When the clock strikes 9 a.m. this morning, tens of thousands of dedicated NRA members will enter the Georgia World Congress Center and begin the festivities. If you're one of the many members making the trek to Atlanta this weekend, we thank you. If you're not, we hope you can join us sometime in the future. Either way, we've compiled a short list of "must-see" items in Atlanta over the course of the show.

The 145th NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits have come and gone.
