Anyone got a link to this years SHOT show in Vegas? I searched around the board and didn't have much luck. I'd really like to take a road trip in Feb, but I don't know the details of the show (tickets, exact location, etc). Also, I'd like to get an idea of how many Arfcommers will be in attendance this year, and where is everyone staying? I've never been, but judging from pics posted here in the past, it looks like a good time.

thanks in advance!

Its an absolute incredible place to check out if you are into firearms.
check out www.shotshow.org
This will get you all the information that you need, be aware though that you either have to be part of the idustry(FFL) or be creative to get tickets.
Im staying at Mandoly Bay on Weds and thursday night, then downgrading to Circus Circus on Friday and Sat nights.
Better get rooms quick though, there are some places that are selling out and rates are going up a bit

Thanks Snorkel_Bob, got any ideas how one might creatively find one's way into the show? Any industry folks or FFL's that need a free hand?? I make a mean hamburger (I even use ground beef!). I'm open to ideas here...

TIA

Just so happens that I have a Press Pass this year and will be able to take pictures.

I'll post some when I get back.

If any of you guys would like to meet up to say hello, just stop by AmericanSnipers.org's booth and leave a message. We'll be using it as a home base.

I know it's short notice...but. Any chance anyone has tickets for the Shot Show? I live in Henderson, NV - next to Las Vegas. I was not smart enough to get the tickets when the were $15. a piece. Now they are $50.

Could someone check out the Schmidt and Bender table and ask them about the reported third generation short dot?

I am really excited to see what Sig is releasing this year. If it was important enough to warrant a special, highly confidential dinner for only Sig Forum members (who apparently were all very impressed), it's important enough for me to get excited about.

I would love to go to a SHOT show someday. Is there ANY way non-business-cronies can get in?

It's a relatively kid friendly place. The more the merrier, but remember the crowd you're going to be introducing them to.

You have to be industry-affiliated. Easy enough, IIRC, someone mentioned that a business card is sufficient proof of such affiliation.

Isn't there a law enforcement allowance as well?

I'm a reserve at a local dept., I don't suppose that could get me in...

Don't forget to bring your Sharpie marker, so you can draw all over the Ebay computer monitors that they set up at the entrances of the show.

Here's the info from their site:

"NOTE: Only individuals doing business in the shooting, hunting or outdoor trade or affiliated with the trade may attend the SHOT Show. Attendees may be required to provide additional verification of their trade-related business or affiliation (e.g., FFL or other supporting documentation) prior to or during the show. Individuals should carefully review the show's exhibitor and attendee rules prior to registering. Registration and subsequent admission constitutes full and unconditional agreement to and acceptance of all show rules."

Usually they require an FFL, or some such documentation.

For years, I attended as a "part-time employee" of a friend that has a gun shop and an FFL.

This year, I applied for a "Media Badge" basis my internet site and was accepted.

All it takes is a little determination.

Some people may want to see the new MGI Modular AR15 system, and yes, we will be showing the world's first 308(7.62x51NATO) AR15 system there(part of the MGI Modular system). You read right, that's a real 308 AR15 with quick-change barrels, quick-change magazine wells, and all the bells and whistles. Takes M14 magazines. It also happens to be the world's first fully modular AR15 for many other calibers as well. Many other features too. How did we do it? You'll have to come and see for yourselves!

We'll be carousing around visiting the places you will be partying in the evenings!



So, are your modular receivers compatible with the Cobb modular AR's, or are they an entirely different animal?
