MidwayUSA, a catalog and Internet retailer offering JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING® for Shooting, Reloading, Gunsmithing and Hunting, is pleased to attend the 140th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits as the Official Sponsor of the show.
"When people ask me why MidwayUSA is sponsoring the NRA Show, I tell them it's because we can, and because we should," said Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO of MidwayUSA. "We can support the NRA because over the years our Customers have been very good to us, and we should support the NRA because it's the right thing to do. The NRA protects our rights as Americans and our future as sportsmen. [My wife] Brenda and I, and the rest of MidwayUSA, are excited to do our part to support the show and we’re looking forward to attending this week."
