The LF party last year is the stuff of legends! I don't think Club Rio or the Hard Rock Pool will quite compare.....

I've got some feelers out, but I don't think anything is going to shake loose....

All I'll admit to knowing is that someone went to SHOT 2004 and 9 months later.....

It wasn't me, I wasn't at SHOT 2004.

The Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Tradeshow (SHOT)
The National Shooting Sports Foundation
is the worldwide annual gathering that unites manufacturer and retailer and all other industry stakeholders to trade, source and learn about the latest products, innovations and trends in the shooting sports industry.



In other words it's a tradeshow/convention for gun stuff.

Thats the spirit, trust me no matter what you spend, its worth it!


Have you looked at the registration page?

I thought you had to be sponsored by a manufacturer, dealer. I didn't think joes of the street can pay their 15 bucks and get in.

You do have a related business don't you?

Link Posted: 1/5/2006 1:16:07 PM EDT
There are all manner of ways to get in. Hell, just go to Kinko's and make up a fake business card! Have a non-profit for NFA stuff? It has a UBI number, which is the same number issued to business in WA. Good to go there too. A little creative ingenuity and you can get through the doors.

Law enforcement? That can get you in too. It is generally reserved for industry types, and it ISN'T like the WAC shows with everything for sale right then and there. Some booths will have deals running (got a Wilderness belt last year for $20) but mostly it is a showcase of new stuff, as well as specials for dealers to order stuff (my main reason for going.) Late on Sunday some of the vendors will begin selling off their stuff so they don't have to drag it home. There is generally all kinds of cheap-ass scwhag being given out as well.

It is worth the trip though!

Looking Good, Now I have to find a room.....


Anyone think I will have any trouble going under my Brother In Laws Costom Manufacturing business, or should I ask Devon if I can be a employee for the weekend?




Where is everyone getting rooms?...(my wife is going also, I guess she wants a tatoo from some place there).
