2005 SHOT Show in Las Vegas
Friday Jan 28 – Monday Jan 31, 2005
Our editors visited the 2005 SHOT show as official media, and were able to take pictures and notes on many of the new and interesting items offered by manufacturers this year. We took part of some press conferences and talked to many manufacturers and vendors at the show for the full 4 days taking notes and photos of much of the new equipment available for 2005.
The 2005 SHOT show was in our estimate 20-30% larger than last year. We rate this show a full 10 out of 10. This is the biggest and best show in America. Only Manufacturers, distributors, retailers and the press are invited to this show. We will do our best to relate the best parts of our approx 30 miles of walking through the show in those four days.
You can browse our featured booths by day, or browse through the Photo Gallery of over 300 pictures from the show
We drove to the show in a rental car.
We stayed at the Motel 6 on the strip (a very scary place)
