Preview: 2014 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Indiana
April 23, 2014
The 2014 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits kicks off in the heart of Hoosier Country on April 25th, and G&A will be providing exclusive web coverage of the newest guns, optics, suppressors, ammo and gear straight from the show floor.
Over 600 firearm industry exhibitors will congregate at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis to show off their latest introductions. The event is also open to all NRA members, who showed up 86,228 strong to last year's event.
Highlights from the 2013 NRA Show included new product introductions from dozen of companies, including Beretta, Blackhawk, and Daniel Defense. We always look forward to new product introductions, but there's no doubt that a heart-wrenching speech delivered by the wife of a fallen American hero, Chris Kyle, stole the show.
G&A also had a chance to interview dozens of NRA members from the show floor about their views on various topics during our Man on the Street series of web videos. Feedback from NRA members illustrated a vibrant array of opinions from grassroots gun owners who take pride in firearm ownership.
NRA members will have another chance in 2014 to make their voices heard on a series of firearm-related topics. If you plan to attend this year's show, keep an eye out for the team of G&A online editors who will be on foot actively pursuing the opinions of those in attendance. We want to hear from you! G&A looks forward to meeting with all of those who follow the world's most widely read firearms magazine.
Stay tuned to gunsandammo.com for updates on all the trending products. Until then, revisit the list of highlights from last year's show and stay tuned for more exclusive coverage.
