NWSSE – North West Shooting Sports Expo

The Pacific North West is one of the brightest hot spots in the country for Shooting Sports, Firearms Manufacturing, big name gun shops, etc. So it is no wonder that Rainier Arms, one of the biggest names in the industry, decided it was time the PNW had their own expo. The first inaugural NWSSE or North West Shooting Sports Expo will be held next month at the Tacoma Convention Center in Tacoma, WA and is open to the public with FREE ADMISSION.
