The NRA Foundation’s ever-popular Wall of Guns returned to the Great American Outdoor Show, held in Harrisburg, PA, February 5-13, 2022. The Wall showcased 40+ firearms for the picking, with the most popular firearms selected being the Springfield Mil-Spec 1911, Weatherby Vanguard Synthetic .270 Win, and the Sig Sauer P320 9mm.
NRA Foundation staff was anxious to return to the Farm Show Complex after a successful pre-pandemic show in 2020, and there was no doubt the Great American Outdoor Show crowd would come out to show support of the Foundation’s mission. In 2020, the Wall sent 180 lucky attendees home as winners, and in 2022, the Foundation is proud to announce they beat that number with 181 attendees taking home the prize.
“Thank you so much to everyone who came out to the Great American Outdoor Show to support the important work of the firearms and outdoor industries. We were blown away by your enthusiasm and excitement, and it was refreshing to be among so many friends and patriots. The Wall of Guns ran nonstop and was a huge hit, raising $70,000 for The NRA Foundation. That money will go a long way in furthering our mission to Teach Freedom,” noted Tyler Schropp, Executive Director, NRA Foundation.
The NRA Foundation would like to thank Savage Arms, Kahr Arms, FMK, Taurus, Ruger, and North American Arms for donating firearms to this year’s Wall. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Nine Line Apparel for designing and donating our exclusive 2022 Wall of Guns T-Shirts.
Mark your calendars for next year’s Great American Outdoor Show, February 4-12, 2023 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, PA.
