The 2014 SHOT Show kicks off Monday with Media Day at the Range. After that testing and evaluation OD, there’s four days of industry madness. Once again, some 60k firearms folk will gather in Sin City to do deals, chew the fat and try to convince their wives they’re schmoozing with gun guys while they’re at the Hard Rock for the AVN porn conference. And TTAG will be there. The SHOT Show, I mean. In force. I’ve got our A-Team on the job: Chris, Nick, Dan, Jeremy, Barry and Joe. OK, Joe’s more of an epic poet than a blogger. I’ll blog a bit but I’m gonna be busy signing-up exhibitors for the Texas International Firearms Festival. Suffice it to say, content and lots of it. Meanwhile, I’m pleased to report that TTAG ranked 44th on wideopenspaces.com‘s list of the top 50 firearms industry Twitter accounts to follow. [Click here to do so.] As always, thank you for making all this possible. As Paul Harvey said, stand by for news!
Home Housekeeping Housekeeping: TTAG Takes Its Best SHOT
A-Team. Which ones nuts? Which one did you have to tranq to get on the plane? Gun guys comparing themselves to the A-Team doesn’t inspire confidence. I don’t think those guys ever hit anything they shot at.
Whatever happened to Frank? He was a nice guy…
I’m a nice guy.
Then why did the other boys go to Vegas and leave you behind?
Someone needs to stay close to a computer to fix the grammar and spelling after the other boys drink in some Vegas night life.
Honestly I am really sad you aren’t going. I was hoping to get your fresh and honest take on the whole shot show. Robert missed out on the everyman experience content you would have provided and we missed out on the real world believability of the gear and guns SHOT show provides.
I appreciate the thought.
Indeed Matt. You are a nice guy. Surprised you’re not attending.
And where, pray tell, in Texas will this glorious sounding festival be taking place? Please say San Antone so I don’t have to drive anywhere.
Austin. Weird wonderful Austin.
As much as I hate the liberal haven that is Austin, I might have to make the drive.
WTF is that hideous crap on the floor? Is the interior decorator a unicorn?
Look up “unicorn meat” if you’ve never seen it.
What, no Matt in FL? I think one of the best on TTAG got left behind.
Haha, I guess I don’t rate.
On the other hand, you have to write under your real name to get credentials, and I’m not prepared to do that yet. Too many people close to me that aren’t aware that guns are my thing, and I’m in the job market at the moment.
I also would have loved your take (I was one of the voices calling for you to be added as an contributor), maybe RF will pony up for an extra ticket next year.
Sad that’s the case but I certainly understand.
I was so hoping to make it to SHOT this year but alas I will be glued to TTAG instead.
Could it be that Matt in FL is FC (FirearmConcierge) on Reddit???
We live in the same state, but that’s as close as it gets. He’s on the east coast, I’m in Orlando.
1. Where is base camp for you guys?
2. I get in around lunch.
3. what time are we drinking?
…..Really? It’s a trade show in Vegas.
To answer number 3, see number 2.
Just send me some pics from the AVN. I really have taken a liking to amber rayne. She reminds me of a horny shannon watts and has a body that won’t quit. . .
Hmm… April O’Neil.
AYFKM? This is the biggest gun show of the year, and they advocate REGISTRATION? I want my entrance fee back, I’m going to whatever is across the street from here.
