    So How's everyone able to go to Shot Show?

    I've seen several people on this forum going to Shot Show. I thought Shot Show was just an industry event, how does someone get allowed in?

    Some of the stuff trickling out from various sources are making my mouth water and wish I could go next year.

    You have either be somehow associated in the shooting/outdoors industry, be an exhibitor, LEO or military person, or press.....or know someone that can get you in that is one the aforementioned.

    Oops....I gotta go! (To SHOT that is.....)

    I have not checked but had been told that I could go if I showed my NRA Instructor card. Never checked that out - and anyways, Show is nowhere near close enough!

    I'm there with a press pass covering the show for the handgun club. There's a lot of cool new stuff here. Taurus really went for it this year with new models.

    Another way to get in is if you have a buddy thats an FFL holder. They can sign you up as an employee. Thats the way I got to my first SHOT show 5 years ago.

    Orlando is a nice change from vegas. The sound of slot machines kill me after 4 days.
