A peek at items showing up for next year's Friends of NRA events
Fairfax, Virginia - The population at NRA headquarters swelled this week.
Who's here? Each and every one of NRA's Field Representatives. They have converged here at Fairfax, Virginia for the 2013 winter meetings.
NRA Field Representatives, or Field Reps, work with businesses, organizations and individuals in specific geographical locations (states and regions) to assist the growth of America's shooting sports.
Over the course of the week, the Field Reps will receive training, discuss plans for 2013, and get a look at all of next year's goodies.
Tomorrow is the 2013 Merchandise Preview. Laid out on a few hundred feet worth of tables, the Field Reps will have a chance to check out all the cool NRA gear available for next year's Friends of NRA banquets.
It's a real hands-on experience with the products along with a thorough rundown by vendors. While most of the items are part of the Standard Merchandise Package most will see at every banquet, Field Reps have the option to include additional merchandise that fit the wants and needs of their specific events.
Along with the reveal of so many great items, we'll get our first look at the 2013 Gun of the Year, Print of the Year and Knife of the Year. These items are a sight to behold every year and 2013 should be no different. We're really excited to see what's in store for the new versions of these top items.
Will anything there top getting "NRA" burnt into your toast from last year? We'll find out soon enough and have plenty of pictures too.
Check out 2012's preview right here. Recognize anything from this past year?
