Amid a bustling show floor, a concert featuring Charlie Daniels, and over 100 seminars and classes, it was the Friday night Concealed Carry Fashion Show that drew the most media attention and hubbub. Throngs of national media outlets lined the ballroom to see carry-specific products and firearms from over 25 companies.
Sponsored by both 5.11 and Crossbreed Holsters, the NRA put its own spin on a traditional fashion runway with its first ever fashion show.  The “models” were actual everyday citizens, company owners, or product reps who support– and know how to use–the products they were showcasing.
With both men’s and women’s options on display, the Wisconsin Center Ballroom was filled with folks both watching for products from their fave companies and gaining ideas for serious concealed carry options.
