NRAAM Canceled

Tuesday, August 24th, 2021

The upcoming National Rifle Association Annual Meeting on Houston, scheduled for the Labor Day weekend has been canceled according to the NRA.

Press release follows:

FAIRFAX, Va.  – Due to concern over the safety of our NRA family and community, we regret to inform you that we have decided to cancel the 2021 Annual Meeting & Exhibits. This cancellation applies to all events and meetings that were scheduled in Houston. We will provide future notification regarding a rescheduled date for the annual Meeting of Members. 

We make this difficult decision after analyzing relevant data regarding COVID-19 in Harris County, Texas. We also consulted with medical professionals, local officials, major sponsors & exhibitors, and many NRA members before arriving at this decision. The NRA Annual Meeting welcomes tens of thousands of people, and involves many events, meetings, and social gatherings. Among the highlights of our annual meeting are acres of exhibit space featuring the latest and greatest firearms, the display of countless accessories, and the offering of adventures and group gatherings that many travel hundreds, and some even thousands, of miles to experience. We realize that it would prove difficult, if not impossible, to offer the full guest experience that our NRA members deserve.

The NRA’s top priority is ensuring the health and well-being of our members, staff, sponsors, and supporters.  We are mindful that NRA Annual Meeting patrons will return home to family, friends and co-workers from all over the country, so any impacts from the virus could have broader implications. Those are among the reasons why we decided to cancel our 2021 event.

We would like to thank our members, attendees, exhibitors, and staff for their understanding and support. We are grateful for the many contributions of the George R. Brown Convention Center, state and local officials, community organizers, area hotels, and countless event venues across Houston. We receive enormous support from Houston and the State of Texas – and we hope to return to the Bayou City for a full annual meeting experience. 

The NRA looks forward to a Celebration of Freedom in Louisville in May 2022. In the meantime, we will support many other NRA local events and smaller gatherings – in a manner that is protective of our members and celebrates our Second Amendment freedom.     

We wish continued health and safety to our entire NRA family.

Butler Creek ASAP Electronic Loader Wins NRA Golden Bullseye

Monday, May 4th, 2020

Shooting Illustrated Names ASAP Electronic Loader as 2020 Accessory of the Year

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – April 20, 2020 – Butler Creek, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, is pleased to announce that the company’s ASAP Electronic Magazine Loader was named the 2020 Accessory of the Year by Shooting Illustrated magazine. Butler Creek will be recognized with the NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Award in the May 2020 issue of Shooting Illustrated.

“Shooting an AR-15 is incredibly fun, but in order to shoot them, you first have to load magazines, which is decidedly less fun,” said Ed Friedman, Editor-in-Chief, Shooting Illustrated. “The Butler Creek ASAP Electronic Magazine Loader makes loading AR magazines fast, easy and effortless, leaving you with more mags loaded in far, far less time. That translates into more time to shoot and fingers that don’t hurt. That alone made it an obvious choice for the Golden Bullseye Award for Accessory of the Year.”

The ASAP Electronic Magazine Loader is the only product of its kind on the market. Through its state-of-the-art designs, the ASAP EML allows users the ability to fill the hopper with loose .223/5.56 rounds, select the desired round count and simply press one button to load their magazines. The machine automatically orientates the ammunition and can load a 30-round magazine in 45 seconds.

Made with serious competitors and training facilities in mind, the ASAP EML will work with most AR15/M16 magazines. The loader is standard with a dual power supply via an AC adapter or through lithium-ion batteries. Users can easily load magazines with 1 to 40 rounds through the selection menu, with the ability to set up multiple magazines to coincide with various training drills or firearms platforms.

2020 NRA Annual Meeting Cancelled

Friday, March 13th, 2020

The 2020 NRA Annual Meeting is cancelled.

We have been closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Tennessee Department of Health.  In fact, earlier today, a state of emergency was declared in Tennessee.  

Therefore, we have reluctantly decided to cancel this year’s NRA Annual Meeting, planned for April 16 – 19 in Nashville. This applies to all events and scheduled programs, including the NRA-ILA Forum. We sincerely regret the need for this action, particularly for our many loyal members who join us for this annual celebration of the NRA and our constitutional freedoms.  Details regarding a rescheduled NRA Members’ Meeting will be forthcoming.

Under the direction of NRA President Carolyn Meadows, the NRA Board of Directors is working with the Office of the Secretary in relation to board elections, meetings, and the like.  

Please know that we did not reach this decision lightly. We were ultimately guided by our responsibility to help ensure the safety and well-being of our NRA members, guests, and surrounding community.  

Please coordinate directly with any hotels, airlines or others who have assisted with your travel arrangements. Most companies have announced plans to accommodate travelers dealing with event cancellations.    

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
