SHOT Show 2010 Recap

Well, I’m back from the 2010 SHOT show. We left after day 3, tired, wet and bedraggled, to head back to headquarters and compile our findings so that we could share them with you.

SHOT Show 2010 Day 3 Recap

We’re just wrapping up day three of the 2010 SHOT show. This has definitely not been the Vegas weather I’m used to: it’s been raining all week! Everywhere I look there are new and exciting products on display, but I also noticed some buckets on the second level of the show catching drips from leaks in the roof. Apparently all this rain is putting the new convention center to the test. Still, inside the new center the weather is fine, and there’s excitement in the air after Steve Sanetti’s “State of the Industry” speech at the dinner last night.

SHOT Show 2010 Preparations

The 2010 SHOT Show is rapidly approaching, and we’ve been preparing for the event for months. The annual event, hosted by NSSF, is easily the largest outdoors, hunting, and shooting expo. Manufacturers prepare all year for the event, and hundreds of new products will be able to be seen by retailers and distributors for the first time. This year’s SHOT show is being held January 19th – 22nd in Las Vegas, Nevada.
