2019 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits: 15 Acres of guns & Gear

he Exhibit Hall was rocking as usual, and even received a surprise visit from President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Dozens of expert-led seminars and a day just to celebrate the next generation of Second Amendment supporters helped make this year’s Annual Meetings one to remember. One highlight was found at the NRA booth, where NRA Women hosted special opportunities to meet women who have dedicated themselves to protecting the right to keep and bear arms. A special sign-up carrel for new female NRA members stood alongside the world’s most perfect “selfie space,” stocked with Annie Oakley’s rifle (courtesy of the NRA’s National Firearms Museum).
