President's Message:  Thank You for Supporting the 2018 NASGW Expo

Posted by Kenyon Gleason on 11/13/18 10:01 AM

I want to start this month’s column by offering a hearty thank you to everyone who joined us in Pittsburgh for the NASGW Annual Meeting and Expo. We had another super-successful show and feedback has been very positive. The show is very busy but I always try to walk the floor a few times to say thank you to all of our exhibitors and get their feedback. But if I missed you, or if you haven’t yet had a chance to tell us your thoughts, we’ve included a link in this InSight where you can do so. Let us know what we can do to make the Expo better moving forward.

It is sometimes said, if the firearm were invented today, it would be required by law to have a muffler. Today we understand the risk of noise-induced hearing loss much better than ever before. “Hearing loss affects more than 28 million Americans, including more than half of those over age 75. Hearing problems—including tinnitus, which is a ringing, buzzing, or another type of noise that originates in the head—are by far the most prevalent service-connected disability among American Veterans.”[1] In the shooting community, we’ve frequently heard that suppressed gunfire that is below 140dB is considered “hearing safe.” How was this threshold derived? First off, in actuality, we would be wise to avoid the term “hearing safe” and instead use “hearing safer.”

Posted by Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation on 10/26/18 4:06 PM

The Hunting and Shooting Sports Conservation Council (HSSCC) provided the Department of the Interior (DOI) with recommendations to advance two longstanding priorities of the sportsmen’s community: access to federal lands and restoration of sage habitat. The recommendations were developed and approved during the HSSCC’s October 2 meeting held in Charlotte, North Carolina and represent the collaborative work of sportsmen’s community leaders tasked with providing formal recommendations to the Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture on issues related to wildlife resources, hunting, and the shooting sports under the Federal Advisory Committee Act. Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) President Jeff Crane serves as Chairman of the HSSCC.

Chairman's Message: Expo Recap

Posted by Brad Burney on 10/26/18 3:51 PM

Wow, what a week! If your time in Pittsburgh was anything like mine, it was full speed then over in a flash. So much time is spent planning and preparing for a week of meetings that it really seems to go by almost too fast. Regardless, our time spent in Pittsburgh propels us into 2019. I want to personally thank each and every one of you who attended the NASGW Expo. I hope you had a productive week. Between the NASGW staff and I, we heard numerous great comments and reports about Range Day, the Awards Dinner, and the Expo venue. Our team at NASGW couldn’t be happier. And, congratulations to all the Leadership and Caliber Award Winners for being recognized by your peers and the industry. I think next year will be fantastic venue and I’m looking forward to see you all there. Mark your calendars for October 22-25 and plan to join us in sunny Orlando, Florida.
