SHOT Show 2017: Day 2 Video

SHOT Show stands for Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show, It is held at the Sands convention center at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas NV USA. It is a private INDUSTRY ONLY show. As media, we are invited to come out and see all the new firearms in the Industry so we may bring you the viewer new content.

DAY TWO

This quick 5 minute run thru of what we saw today.  Includes a quick interview with Dead Air Armaments.  I heard that if we wanted to see every booth in this show we could only spend one minute 18 seconds in a booth.  Bad news guys!  We aren’t going to see every booth.  But trust me when I say that we are spending time with the good guys.  Gotta go, lots to see……….

First Look at EOTech’s New Scopes at Shot Show 2016

Atticus saw some of EOTech’s advanced weapon accessories for defense, law enforcement, homeland security, hunting and recreational shooting at Shot Show 2016.

  • Holographic Weapon Sights
  • Tactical Lights and Lasers
  • Thermal Vision Devices
  • Night Vision Devices

Top Five Things We Liked at Industry Day at the Range

  1. The CMMG Mutant MK-47 KIMG_0039
  2. The Barrett MRADIMG_0006
  3. H&K MR762A1 Long Rifle Package IIIMG_0052
  4. Zenith Roller Locker MKE Z-5KIMG_0019
  5. Springfield M1A SOCOM16 CBQIMG_0024

Notable mentions:

The crew shot 960 meters for the first time with a .308 and rang a 16″ gong.

Silencerco had a .45-70 lever action suppressed, which was fun.

We used the Geissele AK enhanced trigger and made it our new favorite AK (sorry but this trigger is amazing and I need it for all of my AKs).

Otis Tech mentioned they are redesigning their line of cleaning kits. (You know me and how much I love collecting new and exciting cleaning kits.)

That one booth that had mints and they were tasty….

Kriss is talking about releasing new calibers such as the 10mm, 357SIG, .40S&W and .22lr.

My burrito was fairly tasty, minus the fact they put all the guac in the bottom and it wasn’t mixed in. (sad face panda).

 

 

Final Thoughts of SHOT 2014

This is my second year to attend the show and I still haven’t gotten over how big the show truly is. I don’t want to throw a ton of numbers at you but I will share a few numbers like 1600 booths and 67,000 attendees and $73 million injected into the Las Vegas economy.

67,000 people seems like a lot but the best way I can think of to share how big the show really is to tell you about the city I live in which has a population of about 48,150 (as of 2012) in a 10 square mile area. My city is almost 19,000 shy of being the same size as what goes through the halls of SHOT which is a five floored convention center.

At the Kriss booth at media day at the range checking out the guns

 

 

After 4 full days, I wish I could say I saw the whole show but I know that I saw maybe half of what there was to see and do. I spent my time making the contacts I need to, to get the products we review on this website at SHOT Show. The crew is  good at visiting as many booths as they can with the very limited time we have and bring back as many pictures and info on the new products for 2014.

DSCN1619

I am hoping that the crew will be shooting some SCARS in 2014

 

On the first day of the show from 8:30am until 5:30pm I had walked only half of the big room and  felt that was a big accomplishment seeing as the show is 12.5 MILES of walk way.

 Picture 170
This was from 2013 SHOT but I think it serves the purpose to show you a small look into the shows walk ways.

 

DSCN2412
As I flip through my show photos I seem to have found a lot of pictures like this one. It is hard to always get the perfect picture here with so many people walking  the show floor.

DSCN2408
This simple photo took about 2 minutes of waiting just to get the browning logo.

 

Final thoughts:

The show doesn’t run perfect with so many cogs all moving at once but for the size and amount of people who show up every year the NSSF Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show is one awesome show.

I am not a big fan of Las Vegas since I don’t gamble and I drink very little but with that said I am willing to put up with it once a year for one of the most impressive trade shows in the world.
