The view from the Stratosphere Tower Air Bar, 108 stories above the desert floor, is one of the most spectacular in Las Vegas. It’s also the site of the CSSA’s 7th annual Canadian Firearm Industry Reception, held January 22, 2020.
Over 240 people representing 161 manufacturers, retailers, media and advocacy groups enjoyed appetizers, refreshments and the best Canadian firearm industry networking opportunity of the 42nd annual Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show.
CSSA Director Mike Duynhoven founded the networking social as part of the CSSA’s commitment to unite Canada’s firearm industry and the larger firearm community. This year his hard work paid off once again as the National Firearms Association (NFA) became a Platinum Sponsor of the event for the first time.
“NFA is pleased to work with CSSA to sponsor the Canadian Firearm Industry Reception at the Stratosphere Air Bar,” said Blair Hagen, NFA Vice-President of Communications. “The Canadian firearms industry makes it possible for Canadians to pursue their shooting sport passions, so it’s important for our organization to support networking events like this.”
The significance of the NFA’s Platinum sponsorship cannot be understated. This spirit of cooperation between Canada’s two oldest firearm advocacy groups is the tangible expression of what our members have long sought – Canada’s firearm advocacy groups working together to defeat our common foe – the Liberal Government and Trudeau’s proposed semi-automatic rifle and handgun bans.
We hope to see the day where all advocacy groups will join CSSA and NFA to work together toward our common goal as well.
Once again, we thank the following companies and individuals for making this annual event possible. The CSSA could not host this celebration of the Canadian firearm industry without the generous financial donations of our sponsors.
