    Pass. Unless you are truly industry or press, it's just a bunch of sweaty dudes reeking of booze fondling guns, looking for freebees, and pretending to be someone. And don't forget the Asians taking photos of guns for their airsoft knock offs.

    Yeah, I passed the last two years. Only reason to attend any more for me personally is to attend the demo day ( Tuesday.) Nothing I am excited enough about this year to miss a couple days with my family.

    After 6 consecutive years, I am passing. It has gotten very boring. Last year I only spent 3 hrs or so in the show.

    I've found that in the past 12 years attending off and on, it's not so much about the show but getting to see old friends and making new ones. That and the mil/LE range day.

    That said, won't be making it in 2019 due to other commitments but will try to make it in 2020.

    I was recently awarded a patent and a patent pending status for a device that I came up with. I and going to Shot Show, not to promote my product or even to discuss it but just to see this industry as a whole. I wanted to get a good feel for this industry before I commit to further product development or future capital injections to keep funding this project. I'm hoping to meet some people, and see what others have to offer. I've never been before, so this will be my first time. I do have connections in Vegas so my suite is on the house as well as any show I want to attend. So I am only paying for flight and $70 for convention.

    Having said that, what would you recommend for me having no experience? Where should I start? What should I concentrate on? I'm really wanting to come back with a lot of knowledge on this industry as a whole.

    Iím probably only going to catch media day this year, but I might be able to swing a day or two at the show.

    Itís a huge convention and even after 4 days you may not see it all, so wear good walking shoes! Also load up on vitamin C as the shot show crud everyone seems to catch is no joke.

    The main floor is where all the big brand name booths are, and as fun as it is going to see the huge booths and stuff, the smaller rooms on the sides and the bottom floor give you more chance to interact on a personal level with the vendors and the people behind the products. The after show parties are another good place to make excellent contacts.

    If I could get in, I would go. But I am not industry or FFL so I can’t get in.
