Gun Safety At SHOT Show 2018

SHOT Show Gun Safety

When dealing with firearms the most important issue is gun safety. Being able to hit the target is nice, but gun safety is paramount. With thousands of people, and hundreds of booths set up at Industry Day At The Range, this could have been a recipe for disaster.

Industry Day At The Range was Monday, January 22, 2018. It was an amazing day that brought all types of shooters to the range. What was Industry Day At The Range like? It was like a shooting range a quarter of a mile long. Rather than bringing your own firearms, manufacturers had booths set up for people to shoot at.

There were all types of shooters at Industry Day At The Range – casual, professionals, three gun competitors, target shooters… etc. I consider a casual shooter.

For the most part, just about everyone was professional and displayed a degree of professionalism. That is not to say I did not see some questionable behavior.

Trip To The 2018 SHOT Show

The 2018 SHOT Show has come and gone. I had a great time, there was a lot to see, and there were also a number of disappointments. For those of you who do not know what the SHOT Show is, it is the largest Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show in the world. It is hosted every year in Las Vegas, Nevada. Attendance is estimated to be at least 60,000 people.

For 2018, the show started with Range Day on Monday, January 22nd. To attend range day, you had to be invited, and/or had to be part of an established media organization. I am not sure of the exact details, but people could not walk off the street and attend range day.
