Here is an overview of some of the guns and gear that were seen around TriggrCon 2017. Some products were announced at the show and others have been around for a while.
If you were unable to make it to the 2017 TriggrCon that occurred in Tacoma, WA between July 27-30, here is a quick walk around the range and the show.
TriggrCon resembles a mini-version of SHOT Show with a much more intimate setting. The public is welcome and the crowds were manageable.
(NOTE: The photos shown do not cover the entirety of either the range or the show, but should give you a sense of what both were about. Additionally, some of the shots from the show were taken before the doors opened and do not reflect the size of the crowd that attended.)

In case you do not receive email updates from Rainier Arms, they just put out an update on TriggrCon Events that are taking place at the Tacoma Convention Center (located at 1516 Commerce Street, Tacoma, WA) and surrounding area from July 27-30, 2017.
If you are not familiar with TriggrCon, this is how it is described on their website, triggrcon.com: “Triggrcon is a 4 day event in Tacoma, Washington. It will include a range day and industry day open to media and industry attendees and the final 2 days for enthusiasts. Triggrcon will showcase the newest, most innovative companies and products in the tactical firearms industry. The conference will be capped in exhibitors and attendees to maintain an intimate and exclusive environment.
Triggrcon builds on existing relationships while fostering new partnerships. With several leading companies coordinating major product launches for the show for 2017, the buzz created will be epic for the show. Media and industry attendees will experience a coordinated effort of manufacturers not seen at other shows while firearms enthusiasts will have a gateway into a show that normally is only offered to industry professionals.”
Think of TriggrCon as a publicly accessible, no-cost, mini-version of SHOT Show.
Here is a breakdown of some of the events surrounding TriggrCon:

The following is a Press Release from TRIGGRCON:
**For Immediate Release**
NW Shooting Sports Expo becomes TRIGGRCON – Tactical Research Innovation Guns and Gear Review Convention
After the hugely successful inaugural year of the NWSSE with 4000 registered attendees and nearly 80 vendors, the most frequently asked question was about its future.
With all of the positive feedback we received during the show, we’re not at all surprised that all of the vendors we’ve contacted that were in attendance this year have already recommitted for 2017 such as; Mega Arms, Vortex Optics, Falkor Defense, Agency Arms, Battle Arms, Noveske to name a few. We will also be welcoming AXTS Weapons, Phase 5 and many new participating manufacturers for 2017.
We will be changing the name from NWSSE to TRIGGRCON (Tactical Research Innovation Guns and Gear Review Convention) to better reflect the atmosphere and purpose of the event. TRIGGRCON is an exclusive selection of the top, innovative small arms companies and auxiliary manufacturers showcasing their new products and accessories. Manufacturer selection will be by invitation only and limited to an intimate number not to exceed 150 companies. There will be a media range day for live fire demonstrations and show times that are reserved strictly for media. TRIGGRCON is also open to the general public during all other show times so enthusiasts can have direct access to the elite manufacturers that participate in the show.
For 2017 and its immediate future, the convention location will be in Tacoma Washington. However, we are exploring possibilities for other cities for possible expansion.
- New product showcase from the top innovative companies in the small arms space
- Intimate exclusive list of manufactures by invitation only
- Open to the public
- Media events throughout the show
