MISSOULA, Mont. --(Ammoland.com)- Due to recent decisions instituted by Reed Exhibitions regarding the disallowing of legal modern sporting rifles, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation will withdraw as an exhibitor and conductor of the elk calling contest from the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Pennsylvania.
RMEF believes the actions taken by Reed, a British company, are detrimental to the Second Amendment and our right as Americans to bear arms.
RMEF reached this decision after careful deliberations and taking into account the stance of our members, volunteers, industry partners and fellow hunters.
We urge Reed Exhibitions to reconsider its policies to avoid a divisive and political atmosphere so RMEF can take part in an event that generates needed revenue for important on-the-ground conservation and hunting heritage projects in the region.
About the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation: Snowy peaks, dark timber basins and grassy meadows. RMEF is leading an elk country initiative that has conserved or enhanced habitat on over 5.7 million acres, a land area equivalent to a swath three miles wide and stretching along the entire Continental Divide from Canada to Mexico. RMEF also works to open, secure and improve public access for hunting, fishing and other recreation.

Looks like someone is giving a gun show and no one is showing up!
Congrats to the RMEF.
Who all has pulled out? I know Ruger, Smith and Wesson, Glock, Hello Kitty, and Remington are no-shows.
Hahaha, that’s cute! ;^)
That was in Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania legislature already has a bill imposing a five bubble limit. < /sarc>
Oh, I am safer already!
Unless another show takes place without reed,
This Will be a success for anti gun groups.
On the bright side, for Reed Exhibitions, the airlines say they’ll be glad change your flight back to Britain to an earlier date.
Yeah, right, it’s a major victory for them! /s ROTFLOL
They will see it and report it that way.
It’s a 2nd amendment victory.
Another show sponsored by a pro 2nd amendment group would be a great follow up.
I don’t hunt nor shoot or even care anything about guns but there is one big terrific outdoor sportsmen show in Spokane Wa in March and you won’t find any censorhip there....big guns, little guns, bows and arrows, all are welcomed...
As opposed to the way the MSM usually reports things?
Right you are.
Everyone here is mad at the NRA for not taking a stand. Instead the organization is asking that everyone just try to get along for the sake of keeping communication lines open - the same cowardly argument used the Catholic Church in the abortion battle.
The NRA has pulled out as of Tuesday.
