NRA’s Annual Meeting & Exhibits 2005: Heading to Houston

Tuesday, February 15, 2005

5 Acres of Guns, Guides & Gear

 

Fairfax, VA – The National Rifle Association is pleased to announce this year’s Annual Meeting and Exhibits will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas from April 15-17, 2005. 

 

Members of the news media are welcome to cover this year’s event.  For press credentials please call NRA Public Affairs at (703) 267-3820.  Credentials will be available for pick-up in the Press Office (George R. Brown Convention Center, Room #304) starting Thursday, April 14.  Television crews and still photographers should bring necessary equipment and lenses (sports lenses) to cover events from platforms at a distance from the stage (throw distance for events – approximately 100 ft).

 

With an estimated 40,000 attendees and over 350 exhibits, this year’s Annual Meetings and Exhibits promises to be among the best in NRA history. New firearm models, various hunting and shooting accessories, and an extensive private collection displayed by NRA affiliated gun collector clubs will fill five acres of convention space.  

The popular air rifle range provides a safe, family friendly activity and the Game Calling Challenge is an attention-grabbing event – fun for participants and observers.  NRA offers diverse presentations throughout the three-day convention, including methods of conceal carry, women’s personal protection and power politics, World War II military arms, hunting in Texas and Africa, and firearms law.

 

This year, NRA welcomes House Majority Leader Tom DeLay as keynote speaker.  A resolute believer of American freedoms and values, Majority Leader DeLay will talk about important political issues and challenges facing hunters and gun owners across the country.
