I’m still early into the planning process for the 2014 SHOT Show. I’m looking at flights, hotels, and budgeting for all of the activities when I am out there. I’m also talking with some other writers about some of the best ways to coordinate this whole crowd sourcing style of reporting. Let me just say that (1) I am excited about the plans I am laying down and (2) this is turning into a huge project!
Some of the people I have reached out to pointed me to the guys at GunsHolstersAndGear.com. They have put together some really great coverage of the past shows and have already started a web page all about the exposition and how to get really great info while you are there. If they run it like they did last year, it is going to be a great resource for news on new guns and other gadgets being shown.
When you can, go and take a look at the site above. Let me know what you think. Should I set things up for SHOT Show reporting like they have done? Should I do something similar…or completely different?
Meanwhile, I am going to keep on planning on my trip and getting ideas on what to do from you guys.
By the way, Del-Ton announced they are now selling three different configurations of lower AR-15 receivers. Available as stripped, complete, and a complete lower with buttstock, these receivers retail for $120-240. User options are available on the complete lowers. I don’t know how many of you might be interested in new guns like that, but there ya go. We should see these at the SHOT Show also.
