Support the NRA and the shooting sports at Friends of NRA dinners in California, Illinois, and Oregon

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, 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 where the donations were made and the other half supports programs with a national scope. Besides all the good Friends of NRA banquets do, they're also a whole lot of fun for firearms enthusiasts.

If you haven't attended a banquet, try one out and see all the exclusive firearms and NRA merchandise you can get. Like what, you ask?

Friends of NRA's 2014 event season ending in Missouri

Friends of NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - This is it. After nearly 1,000 events across all 50 states, we've reached the end of the 2014 Friends of NRA banquet season.

The final banquet will be held next Thursday, December 11 in Wardsville, Missouri.

We're expecting another great year for the grassroots program that strives to help our shooting sports traditions. Friends of NRA's continued success is all thanks to its dedicated volunteers throughout the United States. Without their support to organize, advertise, and run each and every banquet, the fundraising effort would be reduced to a handful of events - far below the nearly 1,000 held this year.
