Rolla, MO -(Ammoland.com)- Making my way across the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, I noticed a small black feather on the floor.

After passing a few restaurants and some slot machines, I noticed a fine white feather afloat. Yes, I was heading in the right direction. This year, the 3rd Annual Women’s Outdoor and Shooting Industry Dinner chose “Birds of a Feather” as its theme. Several industry sponsors joined the headline sponsor, LaserMax, to present this much-awaited affair.

Platinum Sponsors:

  • 2 Vets Arms
  • Flashbang Holsters
  • NRA Women’s Network
  • XS Sight Systems
  • Benelli USA
  • Hawke Sport Optics
  • Ultimate Upland
  • SIG SAUER

Gold Sponsors:

  • Galco Gunleather
  • Remington Arms
  • Timney Triggers
  • FrogLube
  • Pròis Hunting & Field Apparel
  • Unique-Ars
  • Gunsite Academy
  • Devil Dog Arms
  • STI Firearms
  • Prima Outdoor

The buzz started on Facebook as the ladies discussed their outfits for the event. Once again, attendees went all out with their attire. Feathers could be seen everywhere, from boas and eyelashes to wings and hats — creativity at its best. While dining on delicious appetizers, the ladies caught up on the past year’s events and made future plans. They exchanged business cards and new ideas, and raised more than $15,000 for a charity, Task Force Dagger, through a silent auction and raffle.

We hope you enjoy our photo gallery that attempts to portray the evening in pictures.
