Dallas: NRA Annual Meetings/Exhibits, May 4-6, 2018.

The NRA will be in Dallas on May 4-6, 2018 for its 2018 Annual Meetings and Exhibits.

For many of us this will be a great opportunity to attend a great NRA time without
having the geographic problem and expense of going to a distant US city.

I'm looking forward to this.

Only members, no cover charge and you can become a member at the door. If you are not a member, go ahead and join now. You don't have to agree with everything the NRA does but they are still the strongest overall support for the 2nd amendment due to the number of members. Hopefully they will put service first once again.

Wifey and I had a wonderful time at the one in Houston. We plan on going to the one in Dallas but have our doubts whether anything inb Dallas can be as good as in Houston. We will give it a try anyway if its half as good as the event was in Houston it still will be great!

I do not know if they still do this, but I volunteered to work when they were in Houston, and they appointed me as one of the firearms inspectors. Consequently, I had access to the show outside of regular hours. That is, no one was there except the people setting up their booths. It was a fantastic opportunity to speak with people from all the vendors, and handle some amazing firearms. There are other volunteer positions (working in the store, signing in members, etc.), but I don't know anything about them.

I may go if I can bring myself to spring for lodging up there. Can they look you up at the door? I have no clue where my card is after all this time.

I've already told the wife I'll be taking vacation days next May to attend the NRA annual meeting right here in Dallas!

you can print up your card by logging in to your account @ https://nramemberservices.org/ . If you don't have an online account setup, you'll just need your member number (which can been found on your magazine if you receive one, or in various mailings they may send) to set one up.

Any idea if carry will be allowed? I went the gen one in Houston, but don't recall if it was posted or not.

Can't comment on the NRA show but last August I carried there (Kay Bailey center) during a truck show. The building wasn't posted then. I suspect it will remain unposted for the NRA convention.
