Re: shot show
Dates are 11-14th. Orlando, FL is correct, then back to Vegas next year. Mike Rock's booth is a great hang-out - always very interesting when the bearded-one is about. He has some sharp guys making barrels, sure enjoy learning from them all. Have to shoot on the 10th all day, then the show is the next day.
Lots of new stuff this year, going to be a dandy. Leupold's 100th anniversary so they are not sitting still I assure you. New rifles, ammo, scopes, lasers - so much to look forward to.
SHOT is a trade show so mostly industry and retail/wholesale folks there but also a lot of interested shooters find ways to attend. It is essentially the ultimate toy show for shooters, simple as that. Usually about 10+ miles of aisles I believe if you walked them all, over 17-1800 booths. Sure is a fine time to see old friends and meet new folks in the shooting world.
