A Couple Of Numbers From The NRA Annual Meeting

The attendance for the NRA Annual Meeting was just announced. The final number is 73,740 which is an all time record. If I remember correctly, the last meeting in St. Louis set a record.

The other significant number coming out of the NRA Annual Meeting was the number of firearms sold by Ruger over the past four quarters - 1,253,700. This is an all-time number for firearms manufactured and sold within one year by any one manufacturer. This also resulted in a check for $1,254,000 to the NRA as a result of the Ruger Million Dollar Challenge. They presented the check to the NRA at Friday's Leadership Forum.


  1. 73,740 is a great number!! Houston will try hard to beat that!

    Thanks for getting that, I was looking for it this morning!!

  2. @Dannytheman: Next year Houston, Indy in 2014, and Nashville in 2015.

  3. More impressed with the nearly $7 million that Larry Potterfield from Midway USA handed over to the NRA. It made the donation from Ruger & Glock looks small.

  4. A chunk of Larry's check came from my pocket...sigh.
