Viridian Weapon Technologies at NRA Annual Meeting


Minneapolis, MN—April 23, 2017 – ( – Viridian® announced today the list of guest speakers joining host, John Sheahan, on the company’s JUST THE FACTs™ stage during the National Rifle Association Annual Meeting and Expo on April 28-April 30, 2017 in Atlanta, GA.  “The NRA expo is a special show,” said Viridian Director of Marketing, Mike Dinndorf. “We felt compelled to create something truly unique for the NRA members in attendance this year and I believe the content we produce will be nothing short of amazing.”

In addition to showcasing the weapon technology products Viridian is so well known for at the company’s NRA Expo booth, the booth will include a stage featuring top-level industry insiders, trainers and thought leaders who will share their personal insights and commentary on a wide range of topics purposefully chosen for the NRA member audience.  Hosting each segment will be John Sheahan; a 25-year veteran SWAT operator, Sergeant and Deputy Director of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department.

“I’m so excited to be hosting such an amazing list of guests,” said Mr. Sheahan.  “How often do you have the opportunity to take part in 1:1 conversations with the likes of Massad Ayoob, Rob Pincus and Mark Walters…to name just a few!  The real bonus is that all of these on-stage conversations will take place on Viridian’s JUST THE FACTs™ stage, which will allow hundreds of NRA members to listen in and take part in the discussion as it happens.”

Viridian’s JUST THE FACTs™ stage will be located on the main aisle at booth #5234 and will feature guests Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the NRAAM and Expo.  Each session will include a brief Q&A opportunity for NRA members to ask related questions; and video of each segment will be filmed and shared on Viridian’s website at the conclusion of the expo.
