Within the “new exhibit area” the place images are usually not allowed we noticed (Tactical legos, gun rack techniques, thermal scopes , physique armor and Bison Jerkey.

ShotShow is a good place to community , create offers, and attend unique after events the place the offers are finalized for instance on the Grayman and Firm after occasion, what a good time in that venue filled with spirits, dancing, and acrobatics and let’s not overlook the chandeliers upon coming into the venue swayed such as you had been in a timwarp as you sweep shoulders with the likes of Ian Mcollum from Forgotte Weapons, David, Myself and naturally different heads of the trade mingaling and speaking store whereas sipping on pineapple rum (captains of trade. )

Shotshow for me (Rad) is at all times a great time, final couple years with the pandemic made shot present a baron panorama of empty sales space area, lack of innovation , and only a stale odor within the air, this yr 2023 was the precise reverse. I did discover a little bit of a smaller Vary day maybe it was compressed for our strolling/legs nevertheless, the present ground was a sea of individuals in plaid , khaki , and crew polo shirts that are again in full drive (take a look at my private loadouts within the vlog)

I’ve attended shotshow since 2008 I am at all times desirous to see the subsequent innovation or cool idea for my very own wargame world and 2023 confirmed me one thing sensible but Tactical and that’s the new Bolle Anti Fog Security glasses and goggles system which we check out in my ShotShow vlog. Chances are you’ll say wow a pair of glasses , Sure, what good are you in case you fog up throughout intense coaching or climate circumstances the place seeing is believing. Do you prefer to fog whereas taking goal cheeking your buttstock? Do you prefer to fog whereas engaged on a lathe machine? Your eyes are priceless so then why threat not seeing?

We additionally talked at Revsion Eyeware who has introduced eye safety to the present ground and in case you are a pilot or cope with lasers at your face , revision makes a lazer resistant lens that may be a should for you , take a look at their phase in my shotshow Vlog.

We spoke to the Spiritus crew who’ve gone from one desk on an obscure ground to the principle ground with a chill sales space the place everybody was begging for many saught after swag, the notorious iceking spiritus patch and we discuss batman and muff numerous muff discuss.

We had been approached by Hearher Lynn BRCC on the glock sales space and did an interview along with her an inturn we interviewed her (sorry heather concerning the audio however we left it in and you’re superior!)
