2015 Shot Show, Last Day.

Gun manufacturers tell me that, when they announce a recall, updating 25% of eligible guns is considered a “success.” I had no idea the figure was that low.

Blackhawk’s famous (and controversial) “Serpa” holster is being superceded by the new “GripBreak.” The Gripbreak is thumb operated. This addresses several issues (real and imaginary) associated with the Serpa.

The “Boardpack” is a soft scateboard pack that fits an M4 (no breakdown) perfectly. I now have a copy!

Attendance was down slightly from last year. Some vendors tell me it was slow. Others tell me they had good action.

Next year was going to be the last in Las Vegas. However, I’m told a new contract has been signed that will keep the SHOT Show in Las Vegas for the next six years. Many East Coast and Midwest vendors are unhappy!

We walked between four and five miles per day! When you want to get the most out of the Show, it is exhausting!

The Show has been at the Sands Exposition Center for several years now, and it is pretty well organized. Adequate staff. Adequate restrooms, food, and amenities. We’re used to it now!

Tonight, I’m going to find a poker game!
