Due to the impending threat of severe weather associated with potential Category 4 Hurricane Florence, the National Rifle Association has made the decision to cancel the second annual NRA Carry Guard Expo, scheduled for September 14-16, 2018 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, Virginia, in the interest of public safety.

The arrival of a Category 4 hurricane would certainly result in a state of emergency for States in the mid-Atlantic region expected to be hit, including Virginia where the Expo was to be held. The NRA arrived at the decision after careful deliberation and concern for the safety of attendees, exhibitors and others involved with the event.

Though severe weather events are beyond anyone’s control, the NRA will be providing refunds to those that purchased event tickets or tickets to paid workshops.

The 2019 NRA Carry Guard Expo is scheduled for September 6-8, 2019, in Fort Worth, Texas
