The SHOT Show is described as "the largest and most comprehensive trade show for all professionals involved with the shooting sports and hunting industries."  and the world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, archery, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, camping and related products and services.  SHOT brings in attendees from all over the US and from more than 100 countries around the globe. The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), a firearms industry trade association formed in 1961, is responsible for bringing this valuable resource to the industry. NSSF's mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports and their membership includes more than 6,500 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen's organizations and publishers.


The Big Show
SHOT is the largest trade show of its kind in the world, with nearly a half-marathon worth of aisles where exhibitors show off the latest and greatest that the industries have to offer.  Just how big is the show?  Check out this infographic to find out.  The 2014 SHOT Show saw record breaking attendance and the 2015 Show could be even bigger!

 
Come on Down
Attendance to the SHOT Show is restricted to those in the shooting, hunting and outdoor trade and commercial buyers and sellers of military, law enforcement and tactical products and services (and you must be able to prove it).  No attendees under age 16 will be admitted.  Be sure to read the additional attendance rules before heading out to the show.


The 2015 show runs from Januay 20-23, 2015 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.

Show hours are as follows:


Tuesday, January 20         8:30am-5:30pm
Wednesday, January 21         8:30am-5:30pm
Thursday, January 22         8:30am-5:30pm
Friday, January 23         8:30am-4:00pm

I look forward to seeing what's new.  Hopefully it wont just be 30 new companies making generic ARs or some new ccw pistol that gets recalled as soon as it's released.

This is the year that GLOCK will come out with their single stack 9MM.  I just know it after that .380 bs g42 that they did last time.

Ya right.  It will never happen.  I bet there will be more expensive gadgets and tech to make bad shooters better without developing shooting skills.

Is anyone else tacking on a side trip to the Army Navy Military Expo ANME while they're in town?

We were kind of sad when we found out that the 3GN National Championships weren't during SHOT this year.

2015 SHOT Show - Media Meetup
« Reply #12 on: January 17, 2015, 08:09:16 PM »
We received word from Kevin at Misfires and Light Strikes about this year's media meetup.

Thanks either to conflicting schedules and/or growing interest in hanging out with all of us cool people that go, there are two meetups this year for the 2015 SHOT Show:

Monday at 8:30 in the Venetian Café Lux &
Wednesday at 8:30, same place.

Kevin is a member here, so he may be able to weigh in with more details as they come, word on who is coming either or both nights, etc.  I know last year I spent most of my time hanging out with Hank and Lola strange, Tac Daddy, Vigilant Spectre and a few others. 

If you're going, be sure to check in here and let us know.

H&K's striker-fired VP9 was a blast at range day and looks great on the SHOT Show floor.


It even has little ears to help rack the slide.



Taurus took ears to the next level and has added flip-out wings to their .380 TCP.

Two finger:

Taurus is coming out with some interesting ideas.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so we'll reserve judgment on the curve, although it is a neat concept.






The non-View (yes, last year's View with the lexan side plate replaced with a normal opaque metal one) also incorporates an assymetric design that allows the revolver to ride close to the body but still be comfortable to hold and fire.

The convertable hammer allows it to have a hammer spur for SA shooting or a snag-free bobbed hammer.
