    Anybody been to a NRA convention? There is one this month I plan on attending and sounds like a good deal. $10 for a 3 day pass. Are these just glorified gun shows or will I see a difference?

    I went to the one in St. Louis last year and it was a lot of fun. There were tons and tons of vendors there for guns, optics, hunting, etc. There were some seminars and demonstrations as well as a air rifle range. All in all a good time.

    I went to the NRA convention yesterday and I was like a kid in a candy shop. Guns everywhere, but I was a little disappointed there weren't more vendors there. Reloading equipment everywhere but I couldnt buy a dang thing. Still a great convention, even snuck a peek at McCain and the other Reps.
