Once a year the NRA family comes together to celebrate and rally around our common cause. As recent crowds exceeding 70,000 have witnessed firsthand, there’s no better way to experience what it means to be an NRA member than to attend the Annual Meetings.
So much of what keeps NRA vital and victorious is packed into this momentous weekend. It’s our chance to meet with NRA officers and hear their reports during the Annual Meeting of Members. At the popular NRA-ILA Leadership Forum, NRA’s Wayne LaPierre and Chris W.Cox take the stage along with distinguished pro-gun leaders to inspire and inform us about issues critical to our rights.
If you like guns, you’ll be amazed at what is in store for you both inside and outside the beautiful new Music City Center. On display are historic treasures and the latest technologies. Guns for hunting, competition, collecting, backyard plinking and personal protection. Famous makers to startup entrepreneurs. Guns built for American heroes past and present. Here’s a chance to view them all and handle thousands of current models from every major manufacturer under one roof. Also vying for your attention among the 550-plus exhibitors are ammo, optics and accessory companies; wildlife artists; and an exclusive outfitter section.
We’ll relax at performances by entertainers as good as Nashville has to offer. We’ll sit down to banquet auctions where bidding for top shooting and hunting merchandise raises funds for vital NRA programs. The entire family is welcome, and all generations—especially youngsters—will find plenty to do, see and learn.
With the world watching, NRA members will stand as one, united in our commitment to a freedom endowed by our Maker and guaranteed by the Founding Fathers. Check out the accompanying list of highlights and make plans now to join the fun in Nashville.
