Pictures from SHOT 2012

A lot of our SHOT Show pictures have already made it to the Interwebs along with stories we ran, but we took a TON of pictures that we have almost no use for. Other than their  aesthetic value, of course. I’ve decided to dump the best of these useless pictures here in one post, hoping to give you guys a flavor of what SHOT is like. BTW, the photographer for every picture I’m in is Flanker from SA (pictured at top in my bed – don’t ask). The man did an amazing job. Taking pictures.

        I’m over 60 and the only thing about me that’s 18 is some of my clothing.

        Stuff from Walmart never goes out of style, because it was never in style to begin with.

    Thanks for posting. I know annotations would have been a ton of work … but the pics raise so many questions.

    What are the bolt guns in P1120569?

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      All 8 rifles in the photo are by Merkel. L-R, the first six are all variants of the RX Helix, including the one hidden by the display frame. It’s a linear bolt-action take down rifle. RX Helix

      The last two on the right are the K3 and the K3 Stutzen (with scope). Merkel K3/K3 Stutzen

      Bring your wallet. And a spare.
