SHOT Show or BUST!
Better than the Super Bowl, the World Series, and maybe even opening day of deer season. Well, it is if you are a serious gun person, as I am.
It’s the SHOT Show — where the world comes to see what’s new, what’s cool, and … well, everything in the gun world. And it’s next week in Las Vegas. If you can’t attend, don’t worry. We’re bringing it to you.
The Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade show is put on by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) each year, but attendance is restricted to those in the firearms industry. Manufacturers, distributors, and dealers make up the bulk of the attendees. It’s not open to the public, but there will be more than 60,000 people roaming close to 700,000 square feet of exhibits.
New guns, scopes, rangefinders, cases, ammunition, safes, calls, decoys, tactical and hunting gear, and a zillion more things will be on display. It’s huge. And it’s cool.
The Gun Talk crew will be streaming LIVE throughout each day, interviewing interesting people, showing the new gear, and grabbing outdoor celebrities so they can share what they are seeing. Tuning in is easy. Follow our Facebook page (CLICK HERE) and YouTube page (CLICK HERE). If you plan on following along, go to your settings to receive an alert when we go LIVE. However, if you are a hard worker who takes no breaks, don’t worry. The videos appear each evening so you can catch up after the grind.
Not only will you see new products, Ryan and KJ will bring you a behind the scenes glimpse into what goes on after the show closes. Our Instagram page (CLICK HERE) provides followers an opportunity to see new products and the adventures of Gun Talk.
You’ll be able to make comments and ask questions while the video is streaming, and we’ll answer as many as possible during the stream.
You may not be able to cruise all 700,000 square feet (truth is, no one can!), but you’ll get a good taste of it through the Gun Talk LIVE feed. ~ Tom
