Just wondering if anyone here is going to the SHOT Show. I have an FFL buddy who might be able to hook me up with a pass, but I wanted to know if anyone else was going. I could chip in on hotel accomodations, gas money, etc...

Besides, I'm sure the show is kick-ass, but being there alone would be kinda strange. What if I got lost in all those guns?

Not this year...

Liver still recovering from last night year.

If you have never been it is sensory overload to the max. I would suggest, if you want to see the whole show, to go at least three days. Last year we walking around from just about open to close on Saturday and Sunday and didn't get to everything. Luckily it was almost free to stay the Monday and we got to check out the stuff we missed.

I might need someone to split a room with. Do you plan on going all 4 days? I was thinking of leaving Wednesday night to fly down. I would return on Monday morning. I will get a little more info. Someone else was going to look into the accomodations to see if they only had two bed rooms or some suites with a couch or something.

Anyway, shoot me an email and we can work out the details.

Just thinking about it at this point. Basically, I would plan to leave PDX on Thursday afternoon/evening and be back on Sunday night. ( I have classes Thursday until 1 PM)
I have no problem sleeping on a couch if I have to.

I'll get in contact with my FFL to see about getting registered.

Unless they changes things from last year they will almost take a note from your mom for credentials. Print out a gun related business card and send it in with your money and its done....

This guy is reserving a tables for a AR15.com get together at a restaraunt in LV. Sounds fun.

Say "Hi" to Wolfpack for me, when you get there. Hook up with him in the Nevada Forum. He normally works to get some people together at the 777 brew pub, in Main Street Station. Also, last year, many people got together for lunch at "Quarks" in the Hilton.
Wish I could make it this year, all I would have to do is drive or fly down. But I can't get the time off from work.

Edited to add: I reall guess I shoud read the whole thread, before I post. I should have figured Wolpack would have already posted something somewhere.

I ended up finding someone to share a room with. If anyone is still looking to go it is probably not too late but the flights will probably fill up in short order.

Here is a cross-post of the WA Hometown SHOT show thread in case anyone still needs to find someone to split the cost of a room:

Just got my guest pass registered with the airline. I'll be flying standby, but the tickets were $60 bucks. It's good to know people in the airline industry...
Link Posted: 1/16/2006 2:56:49 AM EDT
Damn, I don't know if I could handle the SHOT show. It's hard enough browsing these forums on a college budget. If I went to this expo I'd probably be walking around in tears, then leave trying to figure out how quickly I could complete my degree and start making money.
Link Posted: 2/6/2006 10:19:39 PM EDT
Ah shit! Here's my deal: I'm flying standby, but all the flights out of Vegas on Sunday are overbooked. I can definitely get to Vegas, but getting back before Monday ('cause I have school)will be a gamble. How's that for irony?

Shall I risk getting stranded there?
Link Posted: 2/6/2006 11:07:48 PM EDT
Of course you should risk it!
Link Posted: 2/7/2006 7:10:31 PM EDT

Umm...your skrewed

And if you don't go, damnit, my room costs just went up!

Got a thumb you can use?



Ah screw it. I'm going anyway. Been waiting too long to just stay home. Besides, I'm already out a whopping $85 for plane tickets and registration...

Sweet. Ignore the stupid roller coaster, but make sure to do the "chair launching thingy" at night. It's a rush.
