SHOT Show 2011 – Wrap Up

White wizard approves.

Did a lot of walking, some eating I probably shouldn’t have.  Fascinating.  The week following SHOT Show was well deserved recovery time.

After the cluster-love last year, I was more prepared to network and talk.  I think I took less photos as a result, however.  Though I wasn’t necessarily impressed with the firearm announcements this year, and especially disappointed with GLOCK’s troll, I had a wonderful experience walking around the show and meeting a small segment of the gun blogger/writer community.

Richard and Aaron, Guns, Holsters and Gear.

Caleb and Shelley, Gun Nuts Media.

Babbs, Women Outdoor News.

Gil, a Freelance Writer.

Magali,  http://www.crepin-leblond.fr [Maybe TPR will go international?]

Michael Bane.

Kathy Jackson, Cornered Cat.

Tom, My Gun Culture.

Regarding firearms, I look forward to shooting the Ruger LC9 and Sig Sauer P290Kimber Solo Carry looks appealing, but I have little hope of getting my hands on one.  It’s likely I’ll have my hands on an LC9 sometime in February, and I cross my fingers for an opportunity with the P290.

If I were to buy one thing from SHOT Show 2011, it would be the Nemesis Arms’ Vanquish rifle.  Coolest gear I came across was Original SOE Gear’s micro rig.  Close second was my discovery of the LokSak [I’ve lost a phone to water].

The business cards were a success.  It pays to get it done right with a good design.  One of the lovely ladies might get a tattoo of one!

Next year, I may want to try more with video.
