There might be a small ray of sunshine peeking through for 2021 and gun event attendees as the NRA has just announced new dates for their NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits. The event will still be held in Texas but the dates which were originally scheduled for mid-May of 2020 have been moved to September 3-5 of 2021. Full Details in the NRA press release below:

Fairfax, Va. -The National Rifle Association’s 2021 Annual Meetings and Exhibits will be held September 3-5, 2021. Originally scheduled for mid-May, the event will remain in Houston, Texas at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
As many uncertainties around COVID-19 restrictions persist, the National Rifle Association rescheduled its 150th Anniversary celebration to help members and exhibitors make the necessary plans to attend. Approximately 850 exhibitors will provide an exhibit hall that offers attendees a one of a kind experience with thousands of firearms on display from all their favorite manufacturers.
The 150th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits is open and free to all NRA members. Some events require a ticket, which can be ordered in advance. Members should watch their monthly membership magazine or go to www.nraam.org for updates and the latest information.
Times have certainly been rough for gun guys this year and hopefully, these dates remain permanent and don’t get pushed back further. I for one would love to see the industry start getting back up on its feet in any way possible. Either way, one thing you can all be sure of is comprehensive coverage of the NRA Annual meeting by The Firearm Blog if and when the event happens.
Speaking of Gun Events, since SHOT Show was canceled for January 2021, TFB and TFBTV will be putting on Gun Fest 2021 to hopefully keep you all up to date on the latest industry developments and pull you out of your gun show blues.
