SHOT Show crowd

The  38th annual Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show – SHOT Show – runs from Tuesday, January 19 through Friday, January 22 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.  This is the largest show of its kind, drawing tens of thousands of attendees.  The 2015 show drew approximately 64,000 attendees – second only to the 2014 show’s 67,000.  The heart of the show that brings such a massive crowd?  The 1,600 exhibitors who cover more than 13 acres of exhibit space to showcase their wares.

SHOT Show Media DayAt Industry Day at the Range on January 18 in Boulder City, we will have the opportunity to visit with manufacturers and see the latest firearms in action with some live-fire trigger time – which is always a “blast”.  Featuring over 170 manufacturers exhibiting, and over 500,000 rounds of ammunition shot, Industry Day is the premier shooting event in the industry, giving outdoor media and buyers the opportunity to shoot and test new products for the upcoming year.  This year’s exhibiting companies include firearms, ATV and truck demos, knife throwing, archery and more.

SHOT Mobile AppFor those of you lucky enough to be going to the SHOT Show to see it for yourself, there are a number of tools to make your visit easier.  Plan meet-ups, talk about what you’ve seen, get pointers, and more in the SHOT Show thread on the GunLink forums.  Find exhibitors, schedule meetings with vendors, take notes, and plan your show with SHOT Show mobile, available as an app for Android and iOS devices and as a mobile site for Windows and Blackberry devices.  This will, no doubt, make it easier to navigate the 630,000 square feet and 12.5 miles of aisles on the show floor!

Of course, all of this great coverage of the best new products that shooters care about wouldn’t be possible without our valuable partners.10713594-1424378571838
