2012 SHOT Show by NSSF Januay 17-20, 2012
« on: July 22, 2011, 11:29:36 AM »




It's time to start thinking about the next SHOT show already.  Take a break from your winter "blah's" and unwind after your holiday stress with a trip to fabulous Las Vegas for the annual NSSF SHOT Show.

The annual Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show and Conference (SHOT Show) is billed 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.  The trade show draws attendees from all over the US and from more than 100 countries around the globe. The show put on by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), a firearms industry trade association formed in 1961 whose stated mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports.  NSSF has a membership of more than 6,500 manufacturers, distributors, firearms retailers, shooting ranges, sportsmen's organizations and publishers.


The Big Show
This year's SHOT Show drew record numbers with a total attendance of 57,390 including nearly 2,000 exhibitors displaying their wares in 630,000 square feet of exhibit space.  With over 2,000 media personnel also in attendance, this is the perfect place to show off your products.

A list of exhibitors as of 7/21/2011 is available here.  Be sure to check the SHOT Show website for updates.  The 2012 floor plan is also available here.


 
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 proove it).  No attendees under age 16 will be admitted.  Be sure to read the additional attendance rules before heading out to the show.

If you're not a member of the trades but you would like to attend, ask around among your friends who are in the industry.  Depending on the type of registration package purchased, many exhibitors and attendees may have "guest passes" available.


More Information
For more information and updates, be sure to keep an eye on the SHOT Show website and the SHOT Show blog.

I'll be attending SHOT Show because of my software MyGunDB.  I wanted to have an exhibit but it was too late, so I'll attend this time and get a booth for the next year. Should be a ton of fun!

It looks like the SHOT show android app and the online My Show Planner can't be synced  ???



Chris Dolnack responded to me on Twitter about this and all is well now.  The mobile app is logged in to using your SHOT Show badge ID while the online show planner is logged in to using an email/password combination.

Apparently, the app syncs with the online planner by means of looking up the email associated with the badge ID.  If you create your online planner account with a different personal email than the one associated with your badge ID - no syncing.


The app looks great and quite useful.  A big thanks to Armalite for sponsoring it!

We plan on this being the main location for SHOT Show updates during the show.

well, since gunlink asked what exhibitors we want to see from the show, you might have guessed my answer...anybody that makes ar15s.  i would be interested in hearing some firsthand news about the new mossberg AR and if it's anything special.   maybe some of the "next gen" guns that are similar too like ACR type rifles

Guess what we found in the mailbox today...

SHOT Show credentials!  We're getting excited; only a week and a half until the show opens.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a badge to try on!   ;D
