This weekend, we're in Atlanta to check out the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits. The National Rifle Association has been holding this show each year for 146 years, and the 2017 event will pack the Georgia World Congress Center with 80,000 attendees and more than 800 exhibiting companies. The three-day show includes more than 10 acres of displays featuring firearms and shooting and hunting accessories, so we're going to be walking the show floor each day to take it all in.

The NRA says every major firearm manufacturer in the U.S. will be represented at the Annual Meeting, but it doesn't stop there. The show also includes knives, tools, shooting accessories, hunting gear, ATVs, and even wildlife artwork. There's even a gun collector area with priceless collections of firearms on display.

Aside from browsing the booths on the show floor, NRA Annual Meeting attendees can experience seminars, workshops, and celebrity meet-and-greets. The 2017 NRAAM also made national headlines recently when President Donald Trump announced that he will be speaking at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum. Trump’s appearance at the show will mark the first time a sitting president has appeared at the event since Ronald Reagan.
