The SHOT Show
Or as FoxNews says:
Smorgasbord of firearms: SHOT Show has 12.5 miles of shooting, hunting and outdoors gear
The world’s largest gun show kicked off Tuesday, providing a first look at new products before they are revealed to the public on retailer shelves.
From Jan. 14 through 17, more than 60,000 industry professionals are convening in Las Vegas for the 36th Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show), where more than 1,600 exhibitors are showcasing their latest and greatest.
Owned and sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the SHOT Show provides an early view of new products and services used by target shooters, hunters, outdoorsmen and law enforcement professionals.
Walking among 630,000 square feet of products, it’s clear that vendors have brought a wide range of new and existing goods for the full spectrum of Americans: There’s a gun for all income levels, for men and women and for those from rural areas to big cities.
What’s on display? SHOT Show is a Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory for firearms. It is a smorgasbord of guns, ammunition, gun safes, safety locks and cases, optics, shooting range equipment, targets, game calls, decoys, tree stands, scents, lures, hunting accessories and much, much more.
