The SHOT Show begins in Las Vegas in less than
a month 3 days and I will be there!
Normally, SHOT is scheduled when I would be teaching. I usually teach my class on Monday nights. However this year, it is the week that includes Martin Luther King Day which means no class for me. I am really excited to be able to go as this will be the first SHOT Show I’ve attended in 19 years. The last one I attended was in Dallas and was a fraction of what it has since become.
To say that the SHOT Show is huge is to understate it. The show will utilize 630,000 net square feet of display space within the Sands Expo Center. There will be 1,676 vendors displaying their wares. And you have only four days to see it all. If I went non-stop from the moment the doors opened until they closed and visited each and every booth, I would have barely one minute to devote to each booth.
That just isn’t going to make it.
Thus, I’m asking you to make suggestions about what you’d like me to cover. Are there certain vendors that you’d like me to make sure that I don’t miss? Are there product areas that you’d like to see covered? Moreover, are there questions that you’d like me to ask? For example, I could ask Remington just when they expect to have the R-51 pistol fix available. Another example is that I could ask Glock when we can expect a single stack 9mm now that the Glock 42 seems to be a success. You get the idea.
You can make suggestions in the comments below. You can also email me directly at jpr9 AT earthlink DOT net.
I really do want to hear from you. I think it will take a good deal of advance planning to make my trek to the SHOT Show a success. Your suggestions will make this more doable. The SHOT Show website is here and the list of vendors is here.
One final thing – if you are going to be attending the SHOT Show, let me know by email and we may be able to meet in person.
UPDATE: This is a last call for items you want me to check out. Email is above. I have a short list and will do my best to check everything out.
