Fun for the whole family at the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits! 


Families spent the day together in Dallas exploring 650,000 square feet of Exhibit Hall with 800 exhibitors from across the country. Join us April 26-28 in Indianapolis, Indiana, for the 148th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits! 

Thousands of parents, grandparents, and children of all ages visited the Eddie Eagle Zone, where they learned about the Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program and participated in arts and crafts (like coloring their own Eddie Eagle mugs and birthday crowns). They could also get Eddie Eagle temporary tattoos, play Eddie’s favorite basketball game, and explore at the IPad stations. Kids and adults alike enjoyed the photo booth and face painting. On Sunday there was a special celebration for Eddie’s 30th birthday. Eddie himself showed up to visit and took pictures with attending kids.

The 2018 NRA Youth Day kicked off with hundreds of youth participating in the Sponsor’s Scavenger Hunt in the Exhibit Hall. NRA Youth Day Sponsor’s consisted of: Dillon Precision Products, Crosman, Keystone Sporting Arms, Brownells, Vista Outdoors Federal Ammo, Gamo Outdoors, Blaser, Henry and Pyramyd Air.  After completion of the scavenger hunt, the youth participants and their families returned to the hospitality room, where they enjoyed snacks and took part of the different interactive activities. They learned how to rope a cow and learned about reptiles and for those brave enough, even held the albino corn snake and bearded dragon. There was a 2 Gun Air Soft Range which allowed for the youth and their parents to take aim and shoot the various targets. Later the participants gathered for an ice cream social and door prizes. Thank you all for joining us and we'll see you next year in Indianapolis! 

The Pyramyd Air Air Gun Range was a popular destination all weekend long for the whole family, breaking all previous records for attendance and number of rounds downrange.  With over 20 shooting stations to choose from, rounds shot down range exceeded 80,000. Several celebrity visitors took a turn at the Range, including Lou Farrigno and Ton Jones.
