2013 Gun Blogger Rendezvous
VIII Information Sheet:
Once a year Gun Bloggers, Gun Blog Readers, gun writers,
shooters, gun association folks, and industry representatives from around the
country gather in Reno at the Silver Legacy Hotel & Casino to visit,
socialize, compare notes, discuss everything firearms related, and get in three
range days covering everything from long range rifle, steel shooting, Cowboy
Fast Draw, and more. At the Gun Blogger Rendezvous there is something going on

The Rendezvous also raises money for Project Valour-IT, a
division of Soldiers Angels, through a raffle of firearms and shooting sports

sponsors, in return, get a lot of positive Internet exposure through the Gun
Blogs and stories about the Rendezvous.

MKSSupply/HiPoint, Crimson Trace, Comp-Tac, Springfield Armory, Dillon
Precision, Brownells, National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), The NRA, The
Second Amendment Foundation, and more.
Last year we raised approximately $6,000 for Project
Valour-IT, and this year, we hope to do even better. Every penny we can make
from the Rendezvous goes to Project Valour-IT.
Even the event organizer (that’s me) pays to register for the
