Reno Gunblogger 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!

Off the top of my head:

Ronnie Barrett
Michael Marks (Fifty Caliber Institute)
Massad Ayoob
John Farnham
Kayne Robinson (former NRA pres)
Sandra Froman (current NRA pres)

Dunno who of those charge - I'd be surprised if Ayoob and Farnham don't. Target speakers who have alot to contribute, but who also may see the speaking engagement as an opportunity to advertise as well, that way it's well worth their time.

Also - the NRA has a speakers bureau that you can contact to find speakers for events.
