Fairfax, VA - The National Rifle Association is pleased to announce this year’s Annual Meetings and Exhibits to be held at the America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri from April 13-15, 2007. 

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 starting Thursday, April 12.  Television crews and still photographers should bring necessary equipment and lenses (sports lenses) to cover events from platforms at a distance from the stage.

With an estimated 50,000 attendees and over 300 exhibits, this year’s Annual Meetings and Exhibits promises to be among the best in NRA’s 136-year history. Leading firearm manufacturers will display  the firearm industry’s latest products. Various hunting and shooting accessories, and an extensive private collection displayed by NRA-affiliated gun collector clubs, will fill acres of convention space.  

NRA’s Annual Meetings and Exhibits provides a safe and fun atmosphere the whole family can enjoy. The ever-popular air rifle range is a top attention-grabber - both for participants and observers.  NRA offers diverse presentations throughout the three-day convention, including methods of concealed carry; Refuse to Be a Victim® Seminars; hunting in Africa; Thompson: An American Legend; and the Firearms Law Seminar. This year promises more Special Sessions for members and guests than ever before, like the new Personal Protection Outside the Home; and, especially for juniors, Shooting for Life Skills and Fun!
