In just a few short weeks it is that time of year again for the annual NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits (NRAAM). This year NRAAM takes place in Indianapolis, Indiana. Staff from NYFirearms.com will be in attendance and looking forward to bringing you updated coverage of the events and vendors.
We also hope to speak with vendors to talk about their future in NY with the SafeAct, and also how the past year has affected their sales within NYS itself.
If there is anything specific you want to hear about or questions to ask when there (and that we have access to) please let us know! Stay tuned and we hope to see you there!
Once again, NYFirearms will be sponsoring the NEShooters Summit training event held at Pelham Fish & Game Club, Pelham, NH. This is the 6th annual Summit Meeting and it will be held on April 26, 27, and 28th of this year. The focus this year will be on solutions for dealing with difficult situations. The summit will last for two and a half days and will allow the participants to meet with and learn from the training industry’s leading experts. This is absolutely one of the best values for training this year.
This year’s scheduled instructors include Craig Douglas aka SouthNarc, Rob Pincus of I.C.E. Training, Cecil Burch, Chris Fry of MDTS Training, Dave Harrington, Wes Doss of Khyber Training, Kelly Venden, Bill Lewitt, and our own Mike Centola.
Additionally, there will be a Man-on-Man shoot-off with prize money and a raffle.
The cost to attend the summit is only $300, however, members of NYFirearms.com will be able to attend for just $275! Advance sign-up is required by all.
This weekend we will have a table at the Rochester Gun Show, where we’ll have business cards and Firearms Appreciation Month T-Shirts!!! Come visit us with any questions or concerns about the site, pick up some business cards to give to your friends, and chat about firearms!
Additionally, we’ve teamed up with Allstar Tactical, one of our sponsors, and we’ll be co-hosting and attending their Customer Appreciation Event, this Sunday (9/23), at Tony Pepperoni’s in Henrietta, NY. According to their post “We will also be holding a Customer Appreciation Event with NYFirearms.com AFTER the gun show on Sunday, 9/23, at Tony Pepperoni’s, also in Henrietta. Come join us to meet the Allstar Tactical team, our BeaverLube girls, and chat about the gun show! Pizza and Wings will be provided! This will be held at 4:30PM on Sunday, which will give us enough time to clean up our booth and head over there! It is our way to say THANKS to the community that has supported us as we grow, and also for us to give some customers who have had less than perfect experiences to come and chat with us so we can make it right!”
Hope to meet some of you guys and see you all there on Sunday! Check out their sweet poster below!
