I just got back home from six non-stop days spent with 65,000 of my closest friends. The annual Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) show is the place where over 1,800 manufacturers show all their latest gear to media and gun retailers. If it’s not there, you don’t need it. Range days at the beginning offer hands-on opportunities to shoot new guns and ammo while four straight days of inside convention hall activity allow plenty of time to get more info, assuming you don’t want to see everything. That’s because if you planned to stop at every single booth, you would only have 65 seconds for each. Yes, the SHOT Show is that big.

Here are a few photos to highlight some of the new gear and show happenings.
