NRA convention expecting 65,000

If you can manage it, GO! I was able to attend the NRA Convention in Phoenix in 2009 and had a great time.

From NRA-ILA:

NRA convention expecting 65,000

More than 65,000 are expected at this year’s “Riv3rs of Freedom” event, drawing from the group’s estimated 1 million members within a four hour drive of the city. Based on estimates from the NRA’s convention last year in Charlotte, N.C., the city’s tourism agency VisitPittsburgh says the event could generate $23.7 million in local spending, part of it from the nearly 30 hotels getting bookings over the weekend.
