    SHOT Show 2008 - who's going?

    The SHOT Show will be in Las Vegas, Feb. 2-5. I've already got my plane tickets and hotel down. Who else is going?

    I ran into a few of you last year and maybe we can all meet up again.

    Sorry, Carnaval in Rio and Salvador... It's a tough life I've got, isn't it?

    (Honestly, I'll be working looong hours doing protection during Carnaval, but at least I'll get to see other people having fun...)
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I thought about going this year (first year in the industry, holster maker), but never got around to putting the trip together.

    I could go this year. I'm getting my 06FFL. Probably can't talk the wife into it. Maybe 2009.

    You, know a great giveaway that a gun site or gun mag to do is would be to give an all expense paid trip to Shot show to us mere mortals that don't have press credentials.

    Plenty of "peons" have figured out how to get in. It's called "having a buddy with an FFL." Hell, you're DC staff, you can get in that way as Media.

    It's an industry trade show- a private event, not a public one.
