There’s no doubt about it – those who attend the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits appreciate and respect firearms. The exhibit floor is immersed with rows of the latest and greatest shared by many in the industry and if you navigate to the NRA booth, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what’s on display.
Each year, the museum curators are tasked to select an assortment of firearms to exhibit at the NRA booth. This year they chose guns based on their representation of the collection as a whole. From treasured guns, competition guns, presidential guns, the list goes on.
“We bring only the most spectacular guns to the NRA Annual Meetings,” shares Jim Supica, Director of NRA Museums. “These are irreplaceable pieces of history that almost never travel outside of the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia and the NRA National Sporting Arms Museum in Springfield, Missouri.”
Be sure to stop by and witness the exquisite pieces in person!
Here are some of the pieces on display:
Colt crafted this exceptional revolver as a gift for President J.F.K. The elaborate engraving includes JFK monogram, the presidential seal, the White House, and a gold PT boat inlay. The president’s untimely death in 1963 prevented this handgun from being presented.
