Educational Zone #159 – The 2013 NRA Annual Meeting in Houston

I decided to go to Houston today to visit the NRA Meeting being held in the George Brown Convention Center. I even took my lovely wife along to take pictures for me. I thought you guys might enjoy seeing what was there.

There were no parking spaces available on the street so we had to pay to park in a parking lot. It cost $30 to park.

I told her that if my old buddy Tman had been with me, he would have turned around and gone home before paying such an outrageous price.

Once inside, I was amazed at how big it was this year.

It is difficult to even show a picture of the whole show, but here is a tiny slice of it.

There were a few “Stars” like the Gunny at the Glock booth.

The best part was that I got to “monkey finger” a bunch of interesting guns.

I found a Kimber 1911 that I liked.

They also had a nice little 9mm that would make a great carry gun.

Mossberg had a Thunder Ranch bolt action rifle that was nice.

Smith & Wesson had their wall of beautiful wheel guns.

Prices were over $1 Grand each.

There were lots and lots of black rifles of various brands.

e159-08

I played around with a Sig that I really liked.

I also looked at a Savage 12/TR Target Rifle in .308 that sure would look nice in my safe next to my .223 Savage.

e159-10

The Duck Dynasty truck was there with some neat duck themed camo on it.

e159-11

My wife found this old VW with a mini-gun mounted through the roof that she liked.

I could have really used it to clear out the traffic jams in Houston today.

e159-12

We also saw some amazing mounted deer racks.

Conclusions:

iIf you get a chance, don’t miss the show. I even met up with a few Arfcomers. It was well worth the trip
