Support the NRA and the shooting sports at Friends of NRA dinners this next week across more than two dozen states

Friends of NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - Friends of NRA banquets have brought Second Amendment supporters together for more than 20 years now under one goal: ensuring the future of America's shooting sports.

With more than 1,000 banquets being held annually by dedicated volunteers like you, the funds raised at Friends of NRA banquets make a real difference. Half of all money raised at a banquet goes right back into grants for local shooting sports programs and the other half supports programs with a national scope. Besides all the good they do, they're a whole lot of fun.

If you haven't attended a banquet, try one out. Below are the banquets coming up this next week, but you can visit the Friends of NRA website and see what's coming up in your neck of the woods.
