The Gathering is a special event presented by Palmetto State Armory that allows gun writers and regular shooters to try out a variety of firearms and accessories. This year’s 2023 edition of The Gathering was held on March 24-25, 2023 in Clinton, SC. There were live-fire demonstrations along with opportunities for potential customers to try various products. Guns on display included firarms from SIG Sauer, Glock, Springfield Armory, Taurus and more.

The Gathering is a Firearm Range Day and Expo presented by Palmetto State Armory. The Gathering brings together the firearms community, media and public to showcase new and existing firearms, optics, and accessories. This year’s event was held at The Clinton House Plantation, a 2000-acre facility that houses 17 live-fire shooting bays, two clay courses, a 1000-yard range, and a mile-long range.

One welcome addition for 2023 was a live-fire demonstration of silencers (suppressors), organized by Silencer Central. “Providing the opportunity for customers, media and everyday shooters to experience live-fire suppressor demonstrations is crucial in showing the benefits of shooting suppressed,” said CEO of Silencer Central, Brandon Maddox. “We’ve reinvented the process of buying a silencer and are thrilled to showcase… our products at The Gathering this year.”

One major shooting industry impact of the COVID Pandemic was the cancellation of the 2021 SHOT Show and range day. That inspired Palmetto State Armory to launch its own Industry Range Day called The Gathering. The first Gathering was a big success in 2021. In 2022, PSA had its second Gathering which was even bigger and better — see the video above. And just this week, March 24-25, 2023, the third edition of The Gathering was held with great success.
