Courtesy of Senior Event Services Coordinator Nicole McMahon, here are the Friends of NRA events happening around the country this next week.

2012's banquet season continues to grow steadily as more events pop up each week.

This week we're highlighting Friends of NRA's 2012 Gun of the Year, the Benelli Ultra Light 12 Ga. Shotgun.

Weighing an incredible 6 lbs., the Ultra Light is arguably the lightest 12 GA semi-automatic shotgun ever produced. The Ultra Light sports a featherweight alloy receiver, shortened magazine tube and a unique raised target rib made from the same super-light, super-strong carbon fiber employed in Formula 1 racecars. However, this new Benelli is no lightweight when it comes to standing up to punishment. Chambered to shoot anything from field loads to 3 magnums, the Ultra Light features a two-lug rotating bolt head that lines up steel-to-steel inside the barrel.

Powered by Benelli's tired and proven Inertia Driven® bolt system the Ultra Light will hold up year after year through thousands of rounds without missing a beat, but that's not all. Both the stock and fore-end are sealed with a five-step process that makes it impervious to any kind of weather while enhancing the fancy figure of the upgraded walnut stock. Each includes the Crio® System with three chokes (IC, M, F).

"Friends of NRA Ultra Light Gun of the Year" text is beautifully engraved on the receiver with the two-stars, two-stripes logo representative of Friends of NRA's 20 years. The 2012 Hun of the Year also features an NRA grip cap design and are individually serialized in sequential order from "NRA0001" through "NRA1200" and packaged with a custom Benelli Hard Case with matching 20th Anniversary Friends of NRA logo.

This week's Friends of NRA events are:

Astoria, Oregon
Big Spring, Texas
Carney's Point, New Jersey
Effingham, Illinois
