The National Rifle Association (NRA) will hold their Annual Convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas on September 3-5, 2021. This will be a very special convention; the NRA is celebrating their 150th anniversary.
With the nation recovering and opening up from the COVID-19 virus restrictions, this is the first gathering of the NRA members since the pandemic began. The schedule of events is still not finalized as to the times and locations of certain events. Guest speakers and entertainment are still being booked. The best way to stay informed of this expanding schedule is to visit nraam.org, which is updated daily as more details come online.
Exhibit Hall will open up on Friday September 3rd at 9:30 AM. It will also be open on Saturday and Sunday. There will be 14 acres of guns and gear on display from the top companies in the firearms and accessory fields. You can see the latest in new guns, ammunition, holsters and optics, as well as to book your next hunting trip with top notch guides and outfitters from all over the world. There will be displays of some of the most rare and interesting firearms from personal collections. This is an opportunity to see guns that are very seldom viewed by the public.
Other events on Friday include The Women’s Leadership Forum Luncheon and the Annual Firearms Law Seminar, which is the largest gathering of Second Amendment attorneys in the country.
Saturday’s main event is the Annual Meeting of Members, where your civil-rights organization encourages members to participate and help shape its future. At this event members hear directly from the officers about the state of the NRA and have the chance to vote on issues. The oldest and youngest Life Members will also be recognized.
Sunday starts out with the National Prayer Breakfast where members hear inspirational messages and music. Shortly afterward, the Women’s New Energy Breakfast will offer one more chance for NRA women to network and learn about relevant programs, and meet the women in the leadership and staff of the NRA.
Seminars and workshops are being scheduled on topics ranging from concealed-carry fundamentals to how to interact with law enforcement and crime-prevention strategies, plus many more. There will also be two special presentations of the history of Sniping and Sharpshooting.
Admission is free for NRA members and their immediate family. Walk-up registration will be available on site for existing members, and you can join the NRA on-site for free access to the show. Don’t miss these historic events in Houston, Texas over the Labor Day weekend.
