This week, Michael wraps up the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in St. Louis last weekend. NRAAM drew more than 500 vendors and 73,740 NRA members. He talks about the huge impact Gun Culture 2.o is having on firearms sales. Not only does the industry receive a staggering number of orders, but the shooting organizations are experiencing a peak in new members. Folks, the bubble is comin’ and it’s the mother of them all!

    If this week’s intro music doesn’t get your feet a-tappin’ and your hips a-shakin’, consult your physician, you may be suffering from premature death.

    Michael, I said it as we finished up Sat night, but I want to say it again here. Thank you so much for your support of IDPA. As the co-leaders of the IDPA Tiger Teams, we were able to spend time talking to club shooters as well as the elite shooters about what they want to see in the future of IDPA. All of our member feedback is important to the Tiger Teams. But being to talk to them one on one was great. We look forward to seeing you again at SHOT & and the NRAAM in Houston.

    We appreciate all your support.

    Bubba & Kitty
