Great American Outdoor Show 2016

NRA’s Great American Outdoor Show is a massive, nine day event held each year in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The NRA estimates that the show will have 250,000 visitors this year. With the crowd I’m seeing, I can believe it. They use almost every square inch of this agricultural center to exhibit and sell, the latest and greatest in shooting, hunting, fishing and recreation equipment and services.


Although it’s mainly hunting related, I made the five hour drive up from the Tidewater of Virginia to check it out.

    I’m thinking about heading up there on Saturday… Looks to be about 1:45 up I-81. My buddy’s “training” company has a booth in the show and I’d like to support them.

    I’m not really into hunting, I wonder if it’s worth the haul? SHOT Show lite or what?

  2. Impressive, the appetite and demand is clearly enormous given how closely this follows SHOT. Great for the industry and gun rights all round I’d imagine.
