    Sweet!



    Until you get there and realize that you are just one of several hundred and wait in line forever and get to shoot one or two....


    Same type thing happens when the motorcycle manufacturers have demo rides at the mc shows..


    Hope your experience is different.

    They are going to have a 50 cal rifle there to shoot tomorrow. Price tag $17,000.00
    Be cool to shoot one that expensive.

    I didn't get to shoot the 50 cal. The line was to long. That thing was a beast!!! Made me smile just watching them shoot it.
    Handgun vendors there- Glock,Sig, Ruger, Kimber,Springfield, Smith Wesson. And I know I'm missing a couple others.
    Fun time shooting!!! Maybe 10min wait to shoot a gun. Except the 50 cal.
    2nd pic is only about 1/3 of the area. I would say consistent 300 people there the whole time.

    One thing I noticed, there was a lot of women shooting guns....even that big 50.

    Sorry for the not so good cell phone pictures.

    Summary of the event from LGS
    I want to send a big Thanks out to everyone who attended or helped at this year's Shooting Expo! All of you successfully and responsibly sent tens of thousands of rounds downrange with no safety issues. With 29 manufacturers and over 1400 registered shooters at the Expo, you have solidified the event as one of the largest free admission firearm demo days in the country. And yes - we have over 55,000 rounds of ammo left over which is now on the rack! So come check out the gun you fell in love with over the weekend, and know that you can head straight back out to the range with it. Thanks again!
