Getting 65,000 firearms industry types together in the same place for the SHOT Show means the annual Las Vegas confab also becomes the venue for a host of annual award presentations. That included honors like the 17th annual Golden Moose Awards, the Emmys of outdoor programming. This year rifle and bow hunter Junie Pack took home a Moose for the Sportsman Channel’s ‘Just Junie’, all about a mother of two who knows how to put her own food on the table.
Entertaining as these shows may be, our guess is that their audiences are primarily made up of those already included in the Venn diagram of gun owners and hunting enthusiasts. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. While we’d like to broaden the appeal of firearms ownership and Second Amendment rights to non-gun owners and those on the fence, The People of the Gun deserve entertainment, too.
