Roberts Defense Honored by Ballistic Magazine

Roberts Defense recently attended the 147th NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits in Dallas, TX.  This year’s event boasted a record turnout, with 87,154 attendees and over 800 exhibitors. Participants were treated to a jam-packed schedule of seminars, workshops, special events. Additionally, for the first time in the organization’s history, both a sitting President and Vice President of the United States addressed NRA members during the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum. 

Roberts Defense was also honored to have been selected as a finalist in the 1911 category for the premier issue of Ballistic’s Best. The crew at Athlon Publishing put on an outstanding event at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science for the awards banquet to honor industry leaders in all categories of firearms.

Overall, NRAAM 2018 was a great success, and we look forward to seeing everyone again in Indianapolis for the 2019 meetings! Be sure to look for the “Ballistic’s Best” issue, which will be hitting news stand soon!

About Roberts Defense
