NRA coverage- or the lack of.

Sorry folks reality sucks.
I had to leave NRA WAY early due to a family emergency. I got to walk the floor for maybe an hour and change.

What is good is that the emergency is resolving itself about as good as can be expected.

In a departure from typical convewntion fodder near the press room is a booth selling fresh mini donuts. How fresh? They have a machine turning them out.

A friends comment sums it up. Something that good can't be good for you.


Do I listen to the speaches or look at the things.....decisions decisions...

Things to remember for NRA!

Business cards:
Even if they just have a name/Blogname and URL/Email. Very handy for the fishbowl drawings.

Address stamp or address labels:
For the other drawings, I don't want to be writing out my address all the time!
I just reuse the ones that charities mail out to try and get you to donate.

Walking shoes:
Meet new people and figure out how both of you know oldNFO!

For all the swag and such. I suggest keeping the catalogs/fliers to a minimum. They get heavy quick.

Your pain reliever of choice:
Your legs will get sore...If they are not sore I'm sure you can duct tape a few more rifle plates to your gear.

Snacks and Drinks:
Don't forget to HYDRATE. Watch out for your friends they might get too distracted.

Keep your eyes open and have fun. Who knows you might just catch Robert Farago with his pants down. (again). He still owes me for a case of brain bleach.

It will be extremely good to see the "tribe". And so nice of the NRA to co-locate a convention.

Stay tuned for coverage!

Just Prepper stuff- CHEAP headlamp.

Spotted at the wall of mart

While definitely not durable, for 1$ they are practically disposable. Also available are 3AAA flashlights and a ball cap light.
The straps are adjustable to about toddler size to large adult (Yes I have a big head).

The light adjusts to 135 degrees to illuminate what is needed. Also you can remove the headstrap and probably attach it to a surface. I'm thinking a nice light for a tacklebox or toolbox.

They run on two cr2032 batteries. Replacement batteries probably cost as much as the units.

As a note when I grabbed one of my headlamps to compare them it would not turn on. Fresh batteries resolved the issue. That reinforced that these are perfect for a backup light.

You are ugly and your mother dresses you funny.
The units where purchased by the author.
Also you are a source of CO2 emissions. You might want to stop that.
