The NRA Goes to Dallas

by J. Vincent Shuck


Things are big and bright in Texas and Dallas is a prime example of what the Lone Star State has to offer. From JR Ewing to the Dallas Cowboys, and their cheerleaders, the city presents great dining opportunities, unique museums and plenty for any history buff to see. Dealey Plaza, Texas barbecue, or a rodeo, there are enough attractions in the city to satisfy any visitor.

Come join us in Dallas for the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits on Friday, May 4 through Sunday, May 6 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. The Network will be among the over 800 exhibitors in the 15-acre hall featuring every major firearm company, plus shooting accessories, knife merchants, hunting outfitters and gun collections.


Educational seminars, special events and celebrity speakers are available to you and the 80,000 other attendees. Exhibit hours are:

Friday – 9am – 6pm
Saturday – 9am – 6pm
Sunday – 10am – 5pm

Admission is free to NRA members and family.

Network staff will be in Booth #7855 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday focusing on our primary missions of recruiting new members and saying hello to current members. If you are a Network member, please stop by the booth and say howdy. We truly enjoy the chance to extend a special thank you for your Network membership.


On Saturday afternoon we will have a special occasion in the booth. Our Advisory Board members will join us and be available to meet you to answer your questions. Although not all of the Board members have confirmed their participation, Massad Ayoob, John Farnam, Jim Fleming and Dennis Tueller have cleared their schedules and will be available.
