Well everyone I know who went has been sick since they got back. Maybe he's drinking NyQuil from the bottle?

No news, photos or reviews from SHOT 2017?IMO, it was pretty underwhelming.

I don't think SHOT has anywhere near the clout that it did at one time. The internet has stolen its thunder. A company can now release good pictures and info, instead of having blurry horrid images and incorrect info cluttering up search engines. The costs associated with SHOT don't help either.

There was a ton of precision rifle stuff. Actions, chassis, triggers, ammunition, etc... I can hardly look at an AR there. But I agree the internet does take some of the wind out of SHOT's sails. However, you still get to handle product and get questions answered which helps gauge a particular item. I really think the range days are the most beneficial...it's just that they have only a sampling of what's at the show. All and all I still enjoy the atmosphere associated with SHOT.

Oh I enjoyed going and you are right, for some not typical gun store stuff, it is great to get hands on with it. But a good 80% of people there are just sightseeing, hooked to some FFL or media organization that doesn't do much. I personally appreciated getting behind a ton of quality optics to see them firsthand.

My buddy went and said it was by far the worst SHOT show he's been too. He said he has specific appointments with a few vendors and they constantly pushing his appointment out or cutting it short due to YouTubers and other media doing reports and blogs. He said that was his last time going due to all the rudeness he encountered.

I don't disagree with you at all. It's definitely a who's who of the YouTube world! I think it would be a terrible venue to do business in (at least how it is now). I'm fortunate I get to go every so often and bring back information to my department and or setup T&E's.

I have never been to one....should have went to the one that was in Indianapolis, but I had to work. The other shows, that are further out, are just too cost prohibitive for me.

I'm not sure but there were some negative posts in the 2016 section (may have been cleaned up) and maybe he just said f#ck it - not worth my time. Same kind of stuff that ran off other great contributors to the M4C forums.

I understand that, and I'm sure Lee will post on here when he is wrapped up with the events at SHOT.

Funny thing is I see those photos and it only makes my feet hurt, remembering all the walking of a SHOT Show. And it's not so much the walking, as all the standing. Slow people. Pull carts full of cheap freebies. Everything you want to see is at opposite ends of the show. And of course you are hung over and need to turpentine bath to wash Vegas off of you.
