Default 2014 NRA Convention

The 2014 NRA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana is coming up! I was wanting to take a look and see how many FTF members are going. I will be going, I went to the 2012 convention in St Louis and I had a blast. The exact dates escape me at the moment, but it's either the last weekend in April or first weekend in May but I may be wrong. Who else is going this year? And does anyone know who the guest speakers will be?

44,

I am planning on going! It is April 25-26-27th. I did not want to pay the atrocious hotel fees they are wanting close to the Convention. So we are going to stay up in the Carmel or Fishers, Indiana North Indy Metro area which they both are very nice areas with all businesses close and restaurants anyone would want. And the hotels are nice. It is only about 25-30 minutes from the Convention for those who are going you might want to check it out, shop around for prices and get reservations ahead of time. I am originally from those areas and will be glad to confirm if a location to stay is great. I stay up in that area quite often each year so I am very knowledgeable of the area hotels and restaurants.
PM me if anyone needs information regarding the above.
Rooms downtown were running $200 or more! No Way!
Hope to see you there. When the time comes close we all should pm each other and leave a cell number to contact each of us at the NRA Show.

Hope to see you there also! We are staying about the same distance away. We have our rooms booked and everything. I can't find much info about speakers other than the usual Chris Cox and Wayne LaPierre and Dr. Franklin Graham (at the prayer breakfast), but I found that that Alabama (a group that got their start 45 minutes away from me), Sara Evans, and a few more country artists. There's a few exhibitors that I'm looking forward to, like Century, Numrich, Colt, and Dixie Gun Works. I didn't see Glock or Barrett on the exhibitors list, I wanted to check out the new CC Glock in .380, the G42 I believe.

So looking forward to it! We got to go to Texas last year and it didn't seem like we had enough time to see everything.

I'm here! Got here yesterday about noon. Only covered about 50 or less booths and won a Wall of Guns raffle. Gonna get there early to get good parking! Also, keep an eye out for YouTubers! Iraqveteran8888, Hickok45, .22plinkster, sooch00, Military Arms Channel, and more! Also watch for celebrities too! Passed by Bobby Jindal when we first got there.

My wife and I got here yesterday as well!
What did you win from the raffle!?! That's awesome!
We went to one of Rob Pincus' classes yesterday- that was really good. We are going to try and catch a couple of those while we are here as well.
I did run into Chris Costa, Gabby Franco, Michelle Viscussi, Chris/Michelle Cerino, Julie Golob and Randi Rogers.
I love how great it is to talk to everyone.

I'm only a few hours away from Indianapolis but I'm working. It would be a grand adventure to go!

Chose the Century Centurion C39 AK and a Ruger GP100 revolver. I'm planning on finishing the rest of the exhibits and the Men and Guns of the Battle of the Bulge.
