    Just confirmed last night that I will be working the Indiana State Rifle & Pistol Association's booth on Saturday morning, 9AM to Noon. If you can swing on by and say hello.:)

    My brother, THR member MPFreeman, and my father will be there as well. Guns are a family affair for us.;)

    Just booked the hotel. My brother, dad and I will be staying at the Holiday Inn downtown Louisville, 120 West Broadway Street. I'll be down first but my dad has to work (71, he's 71 and he still works), so Matt and dad will be down later Thursday night.

    I'll be at the CLE (law) seminar on Friday and then working the ISRPA booth on Saturday morning.

    If anyone wants to do dinner Thursday night, my mobile is (765) 427-0993.

    I live there, but my job's inventory is that week, so I can't host anything :(

    THR meet during the show for all of the people in town, though?

    Friday

    A co-worker and myself and maybe my son will be there Friday. It's only about a 3 hour drive from where we live in west KY so no need to spend the night, plus we are limited on time. Hopefully will see plenty of you there

    Eight other friends/members and myself will be attending Friday, Saturday and leaving Sunday. Eight of us are driving from northeast Ohio and one from northwest New York (the New Yorker will rendezvous with us in Ohio first). Four of us had attended the recent Convention in Pittsburg and had a really good time.

    I am a long time proud NRA member (Benefactor now) and would hope that every THR member is a member of the NRA. If you're not, please consider joining as soon as possible. We need every God-fearing, patriotic American gunowner onboard as we gird for the fights ahead.

    Hope to meet some fellow THR members also attending the convention- maybe some of could have lunch or something at a predesignated meeting place?

    I wish everybody a good, productive time at the Convention and a safe journey to and from

    I would love to be there and this one is close to the house.

    However, Uncle Sam has me otherwise engaged.

    Enjoy!

    I will be there to attend the law seminar (CLE) on Friday. I'd be glad to meet up on Thursday or Friday evening. I have to leave by mid-morning on Saturday.

    It's getting real close! I'm excited. I attended the meeting in Houston a few years ago. This is not your average gun show. If you can attend I strongly suggest you do, you won't regret it.

    FIREARMS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN SOUTH HALL "A" DURING THE CELEBRATION OF AMERICAN VALUES LEADERSHIP FORUM.

    This is a change from what was on the web site earlier! This forum is Friday at 12:30 to 4:30. Otherwise, CC is approved per NRA web site for the rest of the convention area.

    It was great to see El Tejon, Linda, and others again. Also great to meet many new folks from Buckeye Firearms Association.
