Rick Perry Thanking and Speaking About The NRA



and this from January 19, 2011

Gov. Rick Perry will take a day to travel to Las Vegas and attend the National Shooting Sports Foundation's SHOT (Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade) show, his spokesman said Wednesday.

The governor is going only for the day to attend a book signing for his book Fed Up!, which argues that Washington is out of control.

The show is being held at the Sands Expo and Convention Center and is expected to draw 50,000 industry professionals.

Perry had stationed his promotional booth right in front of a Texas based specialty weapons manufacturer LaRue Tactical. In the little spare time Perry has he has been known to show up at LaRue Tactical to do a little shooting. LaRue Tactical is well known in the high end AR-15 platform gun enthusiast circles.

I bet Perry will also be signing more than a few of his namesake gun, the Ruger .380 True Texan Coyote Special. Although the newly released Smith & Wesson Governor revolver would also be an appropriate gun to get signed by one of the most gun friendly Governors in the country.


Wild Thing's comment........

It would be so great to have a President that felt like Perry does about guns. Instead of 70 plus rounds of golf like Obama does. To have a President out there target shooting. heh heh

Perry on guns:

"Perry said, "Thankfully, we have organizations like these that are devoted to defending our essential Second Amendment rights and protecting the pillars of our democracy. I honestly believe in an individual’s right to carry for the way it helps a citizen with self-defense and for the deterrent effect it has on other violent crimes. This keeps us all safer."

Yes! I am tired of the Harvard golfers that we have had for presidents. A Texas A&M shooter sounds much more Americana.

Going to the Shot Show to garner votes is like preaching to the choir. The Shot Show is a trade show for dealers and manufacturers of firearms and related equipment(camping gear, optics, ammo, etc,). I would venture a guess that 99+% of these folks would be Perry voters.

Back when I was a gun dealer and the Shot Show was held frequently in Dallas, I would go to the show. It would take up the entire Dallas Convention Center and would literally take me two days to see all of it. Talk about a kid in a candy store.

Tom, I agree, Perry had gone to the show to promote his book Fed UP.
Thank you so much for sharing too about the gun shows in Dallas as a dealer.
