SHOT Show has renamed Media Day to Industry Day at the Range. Invited media (yes, I was) are allowed into the Boulder City Rifle and Pistol Club at 8:30 a.m. Other invited industry members (buyers, dealers, distributors, and retailers) are welcomed at noon. Media are allowed to stay until the event’s closing at 4:30.
I was told that of the 2,500 media members granted press passes, only 1,000 were allowed into Industry Day. It certainly seemed less crowded this morning.
Unlike past years, remembering the 2013 battle with frostbite, this year’s weather was very mild, indeed. It was in the low 50’s when I arrived then warmed up to nearly the 70’s. Fantasic views were had of the surrounding desert clime.
I enjoyed shuffling around on the gravel and dirt to see and shoot a few new guns. There will be forthcoming articles here and a few videos up on ThinBlueFlorida’s YouTube channel when I get back. I posted a few photos on Facebook at the end of the day and I plan to continue snapping and posting during my stay in Sin City, so you can follow there, too.
