I found good info last year that made planning for getting around NRA show in Indy fairly easy so I found some info to post for this year's show. I hope to get to go check it out this year. Hopefully this helps out others too.
Music City Center parking info is at http://nashvillemusiccitycenter.com/parking
The site says they have 1800 spaces with 24/7 security with automated pay in/out so you don't' need an attendant. Site says "garage is located on 6th Avenue and Demonbreun, directly across from the south entrance to Bridgestone Arena, and we are within easy walking distance to all downtown attractions. There are three entrances to the garage: one on 7th & Demonbreun and two on 6th Avenue between Demonbreun and Korean Veterans Boulevard.
0-4 Hours $7
4-10 Hours $12
Daily Max $18
Lost Ticket $18
so you'll probably end up getting hit for $12 a day

CCW is OK at the NRA Show but not where the concert is.  This is the response that they are sending out when asked
Good Afternoon,
Thank you for your email. During the 2015 NRA Annual Meeting & Exhibits, lawfully carried firearms will be permitted in the Music City Center with the proper license in accordance with Tennessee law. Bridgestone Arena prohibits the possession of firearms. When carrying your firearm, remember to follow all federal, state and local laws.
Have a great day,
NRA Shows and Exhibits Staff

Sounds like a good time.  It seems odd that Glock chose here to introduce G43 instead of SHOT since it seems like a lot of officers would want one for a BUG

We spoke with a number of companies at SHOT Show 2015 who had new products that were not ready for show time in January but were planing on unveiling them in Nashville.

GunLink staff has plans to not only cover the G43 from the NRAAM show floor, but also to get some trigger time behind the new pistol.

What else should we cover?

Is there anything that may interest other female shooters out there?

It looks like they are recommending people park in lot D at LP field across the river. It is $10 for all day and there is a free shuttle back and forth from the LP lot to Music City Center that runs 6:30a-7p on Friday and Saturday and 7a-6p on Sunday. If it's nice, there's a pedestrian bridge across for a 3/4 mile walk. It's currently 90%, 0%, 40% chance of rain on fri/sat/sun.

Ladies will want to check out the Lady's Zone at the Remington Booth. Examples of hand guns, rifles and shotguns are available that are better fitting for women.
