Shooters Paradise: SHOT Show Media Day 2008 Quick Report
Most serious shooters know that the Shooting and Outdoor Sports Trade Show, SHOT by any other name, is the annual showcase for new guns, ammunition, accessories and more. But for a select few gun writers, editors, TV producers and hosts, the day before the SHOT Show is a chance to shoot the latest and greatest from gun makers from around the world. In fact, a typical media event offers an opportunity to shoot up to 50 different firearms, although a typical participant cant tally more than a couple dozen. The key is the variety of firearms that manufacturers have on paradeeverything from sweet-shooting 20-gauge O/Us, to belt-fed .50 caliber machine guns that reverberate throughout the stark but beautiful Nevada hills that ring Las Vegas.
