Got to wander the gunshow for both days at no charge with camera casually slung around my neck. I was the "official" photographer. Did manage to pull a ladder out of the back and take some overhead "big" scene shots. Big crowd. Lots of people.
I did shoot a bajillion files of TSRA folks and events. Might post a few but ought to let my client have the first krackatoa at those. Got to actually hold four Olympic Medals, which was kind of neat. Saw Jay Novochek, the Dallas Cowboy tight end. Convention and meetings full of wonderful gun-owning people who keep the rest of us actually SAFER from oppression by...well, those folks who would oppress and deny human rights. Kind of funny. The government goes on and on about protecting and preserving the Constitution, but we have to fight them tooth and nail or they will regulate it...pretty much to where it is now. As much as we love the LEOs...basically they are muscle for the big bureaucracies. Weird. But the TSRA ACTUALLY PROTECTS AND PRESERVES GUN RIGHTS. You a member?
Only thing I bought was a 3.50 cent Apricot fried pie that was worth 2.75. I did get chased off a used book table when I got engrossed in an account of the Finns and Soviets in the snow in WWII.
If you aren't a TSRA member, just keep in mind that gun rights in Texas need your support. Put a little money where your heart is. Everything that has gotten done in the last 30 years concerning Texas gun rights has been done by the TSRA. Nobody else, not the Statehouse folks down in Austin, the vast bureaucracies, the feds, the LEOs or anyone else is doing anything except whittling away at us.
Update: Alan Wilson won a gun safe. That was kind of impressive. Katie won a 50.00 certificate to Bass Pro Shop.
