UPDATE: This was originally entitled “53 pounds & 17.25″“, but my wife discovered another bag of press kits that I had overlooked when first unpacking.
That’s how much literature I brought back from the 2006 SHOT Show. There would have been more, but we flew and I started taking it real easy on the second day as I watched it pile up. There are a few duplicates, but not much.
I saw a lot of good stuff and probably missed ten times as much as I saw. I talked to a lot of great guys and few guys that weren’t quite so great. I saw and handled enough small-arms to equip a small third-world nation. If there would have been a couple of booths for RPGs, it would have been just like a typical Iraqi village.
As I was there as a writer for Shooting Sports Retailer magazine (Murdoc’s first “Press” pass), we’ll have to see how things fall out before I post the goods here on MO. Don’t fret, I’ll make sure no good story goes unpublished.
Anyway, Murdoc is back in the Badger State and should resume regular posting tomorrow.
I pretty much missed the news over the past couple of days, but I gather that I should be thankful Dick Cheney wasn’t at the SHOT Show handling the SHOTguns. It might have turned into the BEENSHOT Show…
