    Who's going to the NRA convention in Phoenix next month??

    Last one I went to was in Seattle and I got to chat with Wayne LaPierre for a while. It was one hell of a show. I'd like to get to this one too if I can get the time off and the bank account will cooperate. I'll obviously have to travel a little further than most of the other attendees.

    I'm tempted to attend several of the days the event. For the time being my request for time off is still pending. For once I'm only a short flight away and I'm not sure if I can get the time off. So close, yet so far!

    It was supposed to be in Columbus, OH a couple of years ago and I was planning on going but they moved it because of Columbus' anti-gun policies. I was rather bummed. For those that go, have a great time. Pics and a report or two could be nice.

    So can any of you locals fill us in on concealed carry at this venue. Only thing I can find that may hinder it is if this convention center has a liquor license?

    A short ride on the Metro train for me.

    I checked their web site and found nothing on the subject.
    If anybody knows otherwise, I believe you can open carry inside if you want to.

    I'd love to go, but after the Shot Show I can't spare the time or money.
