NRA to host personal protection expo in 2017

The National Rifle Association announced plans this week for a three-day expo focused on personal protection for next year in Milwaukee.

The gun lobby said the NRA Personal Protection Expo “will equip visitors with the products, training and mindset necessary to prepare and defend themselves and their loved ones when threats arise.”

The three-day event will focus on personal protection, concealed carry and defense tactics. Classes will range from one hour informational seminars to multi-hour, in-depth instruction and hands on training, the event’s website says.

The NRA Personal Protection Expo kicks off Aug. 25-27, 2017, at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee.
