SHOT Show 2016–Did you visit the AGI Booth?

I hope many of you were able to visit the 2016 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. There were so many booths and displays that it would be impossible to spend time at all of them in the 4 days available.

I did try however, to see as much as I could. In fact the “Health” app on my smartphone shows that in the 2-1/2 days I was there I walked 15.25 miles! No wonder my dogs ached! In fact NSSF said there were 13 ACRES of product displays and booths.

2016 SHOT Show Report

NSSF_LogoThe 2016 SHOT Show happens in Las Vegas starting Tuesday January 19 and lasts all week. This once-a-year event, organized by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, is a trade show designed to highlight new products and developments in the shooting and outdoors industry. Unfortunately it is not open to the public, but those in the firearms or related industry (including FFL gunsmiths!) are eligible to attend.

Guns and Gunsmiths will be there Tuesday and Wednesday along with our sponsors, the American Gunsmithing Institute and the Gun Club of America who will be there all week, to gather interviews with industry leaders, new product reviews, and as much other information as we can to pass on to you. The AGI/GCA booth is #2110 on the first level so if you are attending, make sure to drop by. AGI Instructors Ken Brooks, Bob Dunlap, Gene Shuey, Darrell Holland, Jack Landis and maybe others will all be there and you can talk to them, ask them questions and have a photo taken if you like.

Updates and articles will be added here over the week, so be sure to revisit Guns and Gunsmiths over the course of the show to see what we have uncovered that may be of interest to you.

“See you at SHOT!”
