People love celebrities, and while many of us in the gun community decry the celebrity culture throughout the country, we still fanboy or fangirl over Jerry Miculek or Julie Golob.

CCI apparently gets it. That’s why it plans on hosting a number of firearm-related celebrities at the NRA Annual Meeting taking place now in Dallas.

CCI Ammunition invites attendees of the 2018 NRA Meetings & Exhibits Show to the Vista Outdoor booth 7530, to meet online trick shooting superstar 22plinkster, plus legendary alligator hunters Troy and Jacob Landry. The event runs May 3-6 in Dallas, Texas.

YouTube shooting sensation 22plinkster is a familiar face to fans around the world. His incredible rimfire trick shots and other entertaining shooting demonstrations have to date drawn more than 66 million views. 22plinkster will appear in the CCI booth on Saturday, May 5, from 11 a.m. to noon.

From the hit series “Swamp People” on the History Channel, Cajuns Troy and Jacob Landry, bring a taste of the wild world of Louisiana alligator hunting to the CCI booth from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 5 and from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 6.

Booth 7530 will also highlight all the latest CCI Ammunition. Attendees are encouraged to stop by throughout the show to learn more about these exciting new technologies and the advantages of choosing CCI Ammunition.

Yeah, it’s not exactly Keanu Reeves in all his John Wick training glory, but still. For some folks, those are pretty cool people to meet up and chat with.

For those who could care less, the NRA Annual Meeting has plenty of other interesting things to see and do. Plus, if you’re there, you get to annoy the anti-gun activists who have promised to protest the meeting. You can do that simply by existing and not bowing down to their childish demands for you to give up more of your rights so they can further their delusion that it’ll make anyone safer.

So, there’s that too.

Or, if you’re like me and stuck far away from the fun in Dallas, you can watch whatever you want and try to pretend you have no interest in attending one of the biggest firearm-related events of the year.

I’m sure CCI would rather you take a range trip and burn through some of its ammo.

Frankly, that doesn’t sound like a half bad way to vent your frustration at not being in Dallas. Plus, it’ll help you become an even better shot which is always a good thing. I don’t think any of us really get enough training.

But, if you’re there, stop by CCI’s booth and have a chat with some of your favorite gun celebs. You can ask those questions you’ve always wanted to know about their shows and YouTube channel and do it in an environment where they’re ready and expecting questions like that, so you’re not likely to be “that guy.”

So check it out if you’re in town.
