12 days of Christmas with the NRA

  1. The second half of our twelve days of Christmas starts with number seven and the seven years of NRANews. As some of you might know, my NRA career started with a stint producing NRANews. With Cam spreading the word while Popp, Mike, Dennis, Dylan and Eric make the magic work, it's a great way to wrap up the day starting at 9pm eastern standard time.
  2. For the eighth day of Christmas we bring you the eight Gatling Guns from the National Firearms Museum's Petersen Gallery. Add that to the other Gatlings inside the Museum's and you have the largest collection of Gatling Guns on public display.
  3. Day number nine is for the nine states that make up the new Mid-American Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC) expansion. That's dozens of new programs in Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kentucky, and Tennessee. What could be better then adding our ability to pass on our knowledge to the future of America's hunting.
  4. On the tenth day of Christmas we give thanks to those who completed their tenth year of employment at the NRA this year. For those of you who missed it, that's Donald R. Sipes, Arlene B. Borella, Benjamin F. VanScoyoc, Andrea K. Cerwinske, Kory R. Enck, Mark P. Arndt, James V. Dove, Ann Y. Smith, Erik D. Eckberg, Jeff H. Johnston, Heidi L. Keesling, David P. Kulivan, Joseph C. Weldy, Drew Koval, Adrian L. Valdez, Matthew H. Bower, Michelle E. Kuntz and Michael J. Erstling.
  5. What could be more perfect for day number eleven then the 100 years of the 1911. One of the most perfect firearms ever created, the Colt Model 1911 continues to be a favorite of those who serve and those of us here at the NRA.
  6. On the 12th and last day of Christmas the NRA takes you to St. Louis for the 2012 Annual Meetings and Exhibits. The 141st Annual Meeting, there under the Gateway Arch, side of ribs and a Cardinals game blaring in the background ... what a wonderful way to celebrate your support of the Second Amendment.

So there it is, one through twelve, all with our own little NRA twist to the festivities. And speaking of festivities ... get back to the wrapping paper. Finish putting it away, turn on the game and spend a little extra of your holiday time with the family. We'll be here when you get back.
