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.

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.
