NRA Dallas 2018 Convention, Who's Going??

This is a discussion on NRA Dallas 2018 Convention, Who's Going?? within the Member Meeting Place forums, part of the The Back Porch category; I'm more likely to go to the NRA CarryGuard Expo in Richmond, VA on Sept. 14-16. I really enjoyed the one in Milwaukee last year. ...

    It's a smaller crowd and more suited to my interests, which are pretty much exclusively concealed carry.

    I've done the last three, but alas, I won't make this year's. I'm in the process of relocating from the People's Democratic Republic of Maryland to free America in the Volunteer State. I just can't swing the move with an expensive trip to Dallas. Hopefully I'll be back on the NRA circuit next year.

    I feel the same and wish I could go this year, however, I'm hoping we see another member revolt to push the organization where it needs to go.

    I used to live close to the Sandy Lake Resort. Decent part of town. It's the closest, and you jump on 35 south, straight shot to the convention center.

    Thanks, good to know! I have to wrap up some last minute details before I can make a final decision. I'll post on this thread if I can do it.

    Not saying it's good, or bad for us, but both Trump & Pence will make appearances there.

    Was going to post this in the other NRA thread, but it was shut down. For those wanting to go up in Reunion Tower (that's the big globe ball, observation deck,restaurant), you can go up there concealed carry. NO OPEN CARRY! Here's the sign in the underground tunnel that lead's to it. As you will note, it's a 30.07 sign which carries "force of law" in Texas. The other restriction is a 30.06 sign, which means NO CARRY. Don't have a picture of it. Keep an eye out for these, as 30.07 is no big deal, but the 30.06 could get you in trouble.

    I am not going to make it this time around. Since I went to the NRA Convention in Atlanta last year, I am going to wait until my new tow vehicle for the RV is a little more "proven" before I take a long trip like that by myself.
