The three-day event is Sept. 14-16 in Richmond, Va., and will host more than 120 seminars and workshops. Open to the public and to NRA members at a discounted entrance fee, the event is the second one produced by the NRA specifically for the self-defense, concealed carry customer. The seminars and workshops feature a range of offerings from handloading, firearms basics, less-lethal, legal and women’s interests. Some seminars and workshops are free, and some will require an entry fee.
“With gun ownership on the rise and more states passing concealed carry legislation, we find more first-time gun owners becoming interested in other aspects of the shooting sports, including reloading,” Trevor Mullen, VP of Global Business Development, said. “The added value of the NRA Carry Guard Expo is not only meeting these new customers, but also being able to sell directly to them during the show.”
Lyman, known for their reloading and ballistic expertise, will be exhibiting their three new presses and press kits, case cleaning and prep equipment, scales, dies and much more, including their library of reliable and informative reloading data books. Lyman’s Pachmayr brand of grips and enhancers, featuring the Lyman proprietary Decelerator® recoil-reducing material, will also be on display. The revolutionary new Guardian Grip™ will also be available for Ruger LCR and S&W J Frame revolvers.
“Lyman Products carries everything a new shooter would need to get started in the sport from grips to shooting bags,” Mullen continued. “And we carry additional firearms accessories and reloading products so a new shooter can continue to grow in his or her sport and rely on Lyman to back them up with over 140 years of shooting sports knowledge.”
