About the S.H.O.T. Show (FROM THE WEBSITE)

The SHOT Show is for the trade only and is not open to the general public.

Retail sales in the exhibition space is specifically forbidden and is cause for seizure of the booth and its closing.

There are NO retail booths..they are all exhibitor booths.

The complete exhibitor manual is available on line should you want to check your facts.

The NSSF is not very friendly about violations...they wanted to shut my booth down for showing a pair of handcuffs prior to the LE section.
I told management to follow me...we went to the Colt booth where there was a photo with handcuffs also....and insisted they shut down Colt first....or leave me alone. They went away.

I'm trying to talk the boss into two tickets for me and my baby for the upcoming show. I was in Vegas a few years back staying at the Stratosphere during the Shot Show and couldn't find anyone that would smuggle me in. I really just wanted to tell Ted to suck my wango-tango.

Dude, I am getting the drift that you are trying to undermine what I know to be true.

Look, SHOT is a big show, but there are SEVERAL people who are at the show to make sales.

I can't speak for all the dealers, but I know that A LOT of people are looking to make money by way of sales. Hence THEIR reason for being there.....

Since I am going this year, or "next" year, I would be DELIGHTED to post my purchases.....

I'll be there. But if you are coming, wear comfy shoes that you can walk about 10 miles in . Dress in comfy, yet business casual clothes if you want to get anyone to speak with you.

And if you can't dedicate at least 2 days, don't bother to come or you won't sleep until the next SHOT. Ha.

And bring a briefcase with a shoulder strap, as you will collect more brochures than you knew possible.

Oh! Oh! Oh!

Dear JD
I'd like an Aimpoint an ACOG, and a little plastic rocket ship!
