Each year, members of the firearm news industry gather in Daytona Beach, FL for the Big 3 East Media event. This year, Patrick Sweeney, writer for Firearms News/Guns & Ammo received the Exceptional Media Award.

Firearms News was present at the very first Big 3 East Media event back in 2007, and we have attended every one since. A very important and constantly growing industry event, it brings together writers, bloggers, videographers and industry people from around the world.

‘Big 3’ stands for Tactical Guns, Tactical Gear and Tactical Training and consists of three days of presentations, seminars, shooting, food and fun. Held twice a year in Daytona Beach, Fla., it has become the ‘Woodstock’ for the hardcore gun media.
