Tri-State Outdoor EXPO
USP decided to try the new Tri-State EXPO held at the David Lawrence Convention Center on January 29 - 31, 2016. The Tri-State Outdoor Expo was much better Show for us than the Allegheny Sport Travel & Outdoor Show. We had very good interest from those attending the show providing sports related information.
All those in attendance were upset with the PGC (Pennsylvania Game Commission) on their handling of our hunting interest as result we gained several renewals as well as new 1 year, 2 year, a lifetime, and a FOAC (Firearm Owners Against Crime) membership.
USP raffled off a Mossberg Tactical caliber 22 with 6 position adjustable stock. The winner was Chuck Girdwood, congratulations Mr. Girdwood.
USP thanks all those visiting our display.
