Thumbs (Joe) & I loaded up the van and headed up to Las Vegas on Friday night after the Daily Gun Show
We arrived Saturday morning and met up with Marco & Pink for a breakfast buffet then headed to the Antique Gun Show, International Firearms & Knife Maker Show at the Westgate Convention Center
Smeggie arrived at the airport early Sat, so he saw the Gun Show too
Thumbs & I took Sunday morning off to relax a bit, hang out, and BS about the last 12 years of our SHOT Show adventures
Sunday evening we picked up Clover & Ghost from the airport and got them to their hotel
We all loaded up Monday AM for the Media Day at the Range, pre-SHOT event
It was Marcos third year, Pinks 2nd and Smeggie, Clover & Ghosts 1st year at the shoot. I think I can safely say everyone had a good time, even if they had to cram into the van for the commute
We managed to run the Daily Gun Show LIVE podcasts each night of SHOT, thanks to Jimmy and Bob
Tuesday I walked 9 miles
The first day of the show, I walked every isle in the four (4) Main Floor (upstairs) Law Enforcement Rooms
Just about every isle in the Big Room (upstairs).
And the new Manufacturing & Products Room up on Level 5 (Good Stuff)
Yankee arrived Tuesday and everyone met up for a Gun Channels photo in the media room
Wednesday we ate a late breakfast buffet with Marco, Pink and Smeggie then headed to the show to wonder around. I managed to record, edit, and post a few SHOT videos and even go live on gun channels from the parking lot, with the guys LIVE inside the show !
Wed night almost everyone met up for a Gun Channels dinner
I got sick on Thursday, but everyone else had a good day at the show. Clover & Ghost left for home.
The rest of us went out to the Edge Steakhouse for an incredible $1,000 meal. (My salad was only $14 and Yankee paid for mine, Thanks) But, we ALL ate VERY well, and you are going to love this story, we’ll try to do a LIVE chat with everyone who was there to describe it
Friday, Yankee left for home (and passed out on the plane??), while we all attacked the show again.
I walked the entire basement level Law Enforcement rooms (x3) and the main (large) basement room, another 8 miles
After the show we visited Hanns Military Surplus again and filmed a tour of the entire store and an interview with the owner of the store. Bought some patches for the Gun Shop Stuff Perks and left some money at Hanns !!
Saturday we all met up in the morning to take Marco to the airport. Pink joined us for a 2nd Nevada Gun Show at the Las Vegas Sports Center
Talked to the show promoters about the show and got permission to photograph and we bought more cool stuff for the Gun Show Stuff Perks !!
After a last lunch with Pink at the Gun Channels house we drove the 7 hours back to Tucson
