NRA Day 1…

0730- It’s nasty, rainy, and the wind is blowing…

The show floor doesn’t open until 0900, and people are already lined up 20 deep getting their badges!

Seeing a lot of older folks, lots of veterans, lots of questions as to where the NRA is heading and what is happening, but no real answers yet.



NRA Day 1… — 9 Comments

  1. What I want to know; when is Wayne going to finally f’n retire?

    I think it’s past time to “give him a gold watch” and shove him out the door.

  2. Hey Old NFO

    Wish I could have made it this year.. Keep us informed and have fun 🙂

  3. You’re in my home town, Navy. I think you’ll find it VERY Veteran friendly. (I did, even upon my return from VN.
    Have a great time there. If I recall, you have a little interest in automobiles, so if you have the discretionary time, take in the Speedway museum, which has not only race cars, but some unique antique autos also.

  4. Ratus- THAT is a good question!

    Bob- Will do…

    GB- Ohhh… Got it!

  5. I want to know what this business of NRA supporting Red FLag laws is? Is it false news or has someone lost their moxie?

  6. I’m a Life Member, which they made spectacularly easy for me, as a disabled veteran. That said:
    I love to see the NRA in action providing education.
    I DON’T love the see the NRA in action attacking ANYONE, even the most idiotic, selfish, power-hungry people who want to take away our right to keep and bear arms.
    I DON’T love to see the NRA providing a platform for ANY politicians, because career politicians have a primary goal of getting re-elected, and ALL politicians have an agenda of some sort, which will not align with the beliefs of NRA members.
    I love to see the NRA in action preserving historic firearms and firearms technology.
    I love to see the NRA in action providing a convenient forum for demonstration of new firearms-related technology.
    Soren Kierkegaard said “Purity of heart is to will one thing.”
    So did Curly, in “City Slickers,” sort of.
    And I wish the NRA would seek purity of heart.

  7. Hoping that there are more than a few women and young people attending. ‘Cause awesome as oldsters are, we need younger members going forward.

  8. All- Thanks for the comments! Brig- Did see some young folks, including single females and families with babies in strollers. 🙂
