The Gun Club of America (GCA) today announced its exhibitor incentive package for GunStock. This event is the fourth national gathering for the GCA’s over 6,000 members and will feature shooting events, live fire demonstrations, seminars and hands-on training for GCA members.
GCA has reserved the Stillwater Firearms Association Range exclusively for GunStock and will have it available for firearms manufacturer demonstrations, test firing of sample guns by attendees, and special training sessions. GunStock also encompasses an additional five acres next to the range which will be utilized for vendor tents and booths, an entertainment stage, and other outdoor activities.
In addition, the Fallon Convention Center is reserved exclusively for GCA GunStock seminars, events and the GCA Silver Member’s banquet.
“We’ve been told by one of our returning exhibitors who attended a previous GCA event with 100 attendees that he sold 13 of his $5,000 takedown tactical rifles, which is MORE than he sold at the NRA National Convention with 40,000 attendees the same year,” remarked Gene Kelly, President of American Gunsmithing Institute and the Gun Club of America. “Clearly our GCA members know quality firearms when they see them and aren’t afraid to buy them!”
Exhibitors can expect to receive exposure to 300+ attendees, including gunsmiths, competitive shooters, firearm industry professionals and high-end hobbyists, all of whom have major influence with their shooting communities.
Additional Exhibitor Benefits:
- The GCA will have two camera crews on hand who will capture footage that will be featured in GunTech, GCA’s monthly DVD magazine, which is received by thousands of paying members. A copy of this footage will be available to exhibitors for marketing purposes.
- Postings to GCA’s exclusive member’s only website, AGI/GCA youtube channel, and ongoing postings to GCA’s social media channels.
- Booth and shooting range space to demonstrate products to attendees. Seminar space for sessions available.
- Product Profiles in HOT BRASS, a magazine that is mailed to 20,000+ people and is featured on the GCA website.
There is no cost to manufacturers to exhibit; however, the GCA does ask its exhibitors to provide demonstration firearms and ammunition for attendees to use (if applicable). The GCA also asks its exhibitors to consider donating prizes for drawings which will benefit this year’s non-profit partner, The Pathway Home. The Pathway Home is a non-profit, residential recovery program for veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars who deal with the challenges of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS).
GunStock is a three day event to be held at the Stillwater Firearms Association (SFA) Shooting Range in Fallon, Nevada from June 15th through 17th, 2012, where GCA members will attend numerous hands-on, how-to firearms training sessions, clinics and seminars.
