Is anyone planning on going to the NRA Expo this weekend in Milwaukee? I'll be there on Saturday and Sunday.

I'm planning on checking it out tomorrow (Saturday) for a bit. Hopefully it will be interesting and informative!

For those of us who can't go, anything interesting?

I thought it was interesting and definitely worth it. The whole idea was for them to hawk their Carry Guard insurance product, of course, but the sales pitch was easy to ignore. There were lots of good booths for vendors (everything from holster companies, to first aid kit vendors, to the main manufacturers like Ruger, Glock, etc.). The sessions I went to were really good. There were "celebrities" like John Lott, David Grossman, Colion Noir, etc. I learned a lot and enjoyed it.
Here's a picture of some protesters on Saturday (including one in a orange Demanding Moms for Nonsense/Everytown shirt). NRA conference attendees: thousands. Protesters: ~10!
