Banning modern sporting rifles ultimately led to the cancellation of this year’s hunting & outdoor show in Harrisburg. For nine days, from February 2nd through February 10th, the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg ran dark. An estimated $80 million dollars was lost. It won’t happen again.
Thanks to an agreement between the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center and the National Rifle Association, people will be welcomed in 2014 to the Great American Outdoor Show. Running February 1st through the 9th, the Great American Outdoor Show promises to bring back the same flavor and style as last year’s event and more.
“The NRA’s deep-rooted heritage in the outdoor lifestyle makes this partnership a perfect fit,” said David Keene, National Rifle Association President. “We look forward to expanding this event by inviting national firearm manufacturers to join over 1,000 hunting, fishing, and camping related vendors as well as outfitters from around the world.”
