The National Rifle Association’s Personal Protection Expo, previously titled NRA Carry Guard Expo, is slated to return Sept. 6 through Sept. 8 in Fort Worth, Texas.

The three-day educational event centers on providing access to gun owners interested in furthering their knowledge and skill as it relates to personal protection and concealed carry. Designed to address both those new to the gun owning world and seasoned veterans to gun ownership, the event will showcase products and provide 120 seminars from which to learn. Seminar topics to be offered include self-defense, home defense, preparedness, situation awareness, concealed carry and medical training.

The NRA says the main exhibit hall of the Fort Worth Convention Center will bring firearms and accessory companies together to offer self-defense and concealed carry gear and guns. Additionally, a Concealed Carry Fashion Show will be held to show gun owners various ways to conceal guns.

“The NRA Personal Protection Expo is the firearms education event of the year,” the NRA said in a press release. “Visitors can attend more than 120 seminars and workshops featuring the best personal protection and concealed carry practices taught and demonstrated by leading experts and instructors from across the country, including NRA staff from Competitive Shooting and Education & Training.”

No information has been provided on the cost of tickets or registration for the event.
