So Long St. Louis

The convention is over, and I’m sitting here back at home now.  It was my first convention, but I have to say, it was pretty neat getting to meet so many interesting people and seeing the industry’s latest offerings.   I’m already looking forward to next year in Louisville!

My impression of St. Louis was overall positive, though I was disappointed that downtown around the convention center is mostly devoid of any evidence that anyone lives there.  Still, the people are remarkably friendly for a large city.

I’d love to see the convention come to Philadelphia someday, but I’m not sure it’s a good strategic location for the NRA, and I’m pretty sure the cities smoking ban would cause problems with some members.  Despite the fact that The City of Brotherly Love is the birthplace of the constitution and the second amendment, it’s surrounded by places that aren’t strong for NRA, like New Jersey, New York, and Maryland.
