NSSF Shot Show vs Reed Exhibitions

After attending the Shot Show we found out about the Eastern Sports and Outdoor show.  We at shotemandcaughtem found through the NSSF that this stuff was going on and thought we would pass along the information in case our members had not heard the news.

Per the NSSF:

We have just learned that Reed Exhibitions has decided to postpone the 2013 Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show.

In the days following Reed Exhibitions’ announcement that modern sporting rifles would be prohibited from the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, the leadership of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has been in intense, frank discussions with Reed Exhibitions management in an effort to reverse this unacceptable decision. These discussions reached an impasse.

NSSF is in no way affiliated with, nor does it participate in or exhibit at this show in any way. Reed Exhibitions does, however, manage the NSSF-owned SHOT Show (though Reed manages the SHOT Show, all SHOT Show decisions, policies and actions are made at NSSF’s direction).

Because of Reed’s recent actions, NSSF is considering all options regarding the management of future SHOT Shows.

They along with a large amount of sponsors will not be attending the Show which happened to be this weekend and has now been postponed due to the outcry.
