Rendezvous Speaker

I'm still working on details for the Gunblogger Rendezvous to be held in Reno this Fall, and I'd like some input from you all on possible after dinner speakers.

Some of the speakers I'd like to hear at the dinner charge for their speaking engagements, and since we have no money to hire a speaker, we have to limit ourselves to someone who would enjoy being there for the fun of it and would enjoy meeting all the gunbloggers in attendance. If they just happened to live not too far from Reno, that might make it easier to get them to attend.

We want someone involved in the gun community that when you think of them, you think "Man, I'd love to get a chance to meet that guy!". He should be someone fairly well known, so his name will be recognized by most of us. He could be a manufacturer, a shooting sports competitor, a pro-gun politician, an entertainer, or maybe even something else completely.

I have ruled out other gun bloggers, since most of us read each other's blogs regularly anyway. He (or she) must also be someone that there is a way for us to contact them, so we can see if they are interested in attending the Gunblogger Rendezvous.

Put on your thinking caps, and leave your ideas in the comments below!

Thanks!

No response from the Nuge

How about:
Condoleeza Rice.
George Will,
Dick Cheney (on "Muzzle Discipline?") or
Jeff Cooper
?

I suggest inviting Professor Glenn Reynolds.

He might actually attend!

Eugene Volokh might be easier to get, since he is in Los Angeles and could drive to Reno in a day.

Another good choice would be John Lott.

I may be able to get in touch with author Brad Thor or his agent -- I'll forward this post and see what we can do.

Stephen Hunter would be another great author to ask.

Volokh is an excellent choice. I'm not so sanguine about Lott, but that's just me.
