Doris and I just returned from 3 days at the NRA National Convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. What a great time!
There were about 77,000 who attended (latest numbers) over the 3 days. There were displays and booths from just about everyone in the industry and some very good speakers, including of course, some probable presidential candidates. It was good to be able to see and meet them in person and hear what they had to say about the 2nd Amendment.
We were able to spend some time with old friends and meet a lot of new folks there. Some new products were introduced and we were able to handle them and ask questions about them.
One of the most encouraging things was to see the diversity of age and gender. There were young folks, middle aged folks and older folks. I saw a lot of families, young couples and both individual men and women. They were also spending money and very proud to wear NRA clothing, etc.
We were very busy, so I was not able to visit the forum, except late each evening. I missed reading the posts and being able to comment.
Next year the convention will be in St. Louis and I'd encourage anyone to who can to visit. It's quite an eye opening experience.
