    NRA Dallas 2018 Convention, Who's Going??

    I just signed up. Booked the flight, car and hotel. Also picked up tickets to some of the events.

    I'm going to carry this when I OC at the exhibits, should attract some attention.

    Id love to go but it would cost way too much, I-20 goes by the CMP store in Anniston, AL and I could not go by without a bit of shopping.

    I would love to go again, but it is a bit of a ride. Not sure if the RV will be ready.

    Tell me more about this CMP Store... I go through the Anniston area myself, from time to time.

    Here are a couple of links to give you some info, when you first step on the sales floor you just stand there in awe, all those M-1a and you can pick any one you want. I left with 3 M-1s, a Carbine and 1,000 rounds of 30/06.

    I have been to one of them, in St. Louis a several years back. It was fun, but I doubt I will ever go again. I'm not feeling all that positive about the organization anymore. (Not bashing, just saying) I don't feel they are taking a hard enough line or being effective enough in protecting the RTKABA anymore.

    Mrs. Dunaway is heading up with me. However, she really doesn't want to go to the convention with me. Those of you who are going and would like to meet up to check out the exhibit hall on Saturday, shoot me a pm.

    We're taking the RV as well. Staying at Trader's Village.

    With all of the anti stuff being pushed, especially today, I feel that I have to go. I was planning to go before this B.S. but now I feel that I must go. Me and my travel gun.

    Does anyone want to meet up Saturday afternoon and tour the exhibit hall for a bit? My lovely wife is trying to get out of going with me.

    Just tell your wife that the "hotter than a .357 after rapid fire" Blackhawkgirl might show up,

    I do really wish I could go, but not this year.

    Nadine thought that was hilarious. She also said me hanging out with beautiful women would be perfectly fine as long as she didn't have to go.
