NAPA, CA (January 2012) - The Gun Club of America (GCA), an exclusive fraternity for people who love firearms, is excited to welcome Kerry Earnhardt, eldest son of the legendary, 7-time NASCAR Champion, Dale Earnhardt, and former NASCAR driver and avid outdoor enthusiast, to their fraternity. Earnhardt will be joining the GCA at the 2012 SHOT Show held at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV January 17 – 20th, 2012.
"It's always great attending the SHOT Show and it's going to be even more fun this year to be involved with the folks at GCA,” commented Earnhardt. “I'm more of a traditional outdoorsman and have always wanted to be more educated on gunsmithing. I love guns of all kinds and even my wife has her Concealed Weapon license, so I guess you could say it's a family affair.”
Earnhardt’s same passion for racing is reflected in his commitment to the great outdoors. Today he has swapped the driver’s seat for the tree stand. He is an avid outdoor enthusiast committed to supporting and educating the importance of land and animal preservation and conservation.
Earnhardt continued, “I'm delighted to partner up with Gene Kelly and GCA to bring awareness to this time-honored craftsmanship. It's always a pleasure meeting fans who have supported me throughout my racing career, but it's really something special getting to meet people who share the same passion for outdoor adventure."
Earnhardt will be signing autographs at the AGI / GCA Booth 2110 at SHOT Show on Tuesday, January 18th from 10 am – 12 pm and 2 pm – 4 pm, and again on Wednesday, January 19th from 10 am – 12 pm and 2 pm – 4 pm.
