Below are a series of one line thoughts I had while walking the aisles at SHOT Show. None of these are worth a post of their own, but together they present an inside look at my thought process while wandering around.
There are too many people here. – There were 67,000 people at the Show this year. That’s a lot.
Is that Steven Seagal? He’s so tan it looks like Steven Seagal in blackface.
Does it count as day drinking if it’s a bloody mary?
There’s a longer line to get a slice of pizza than there is to meet Ted Nugent. Must be good pizza.
Where the **** is the booth I’m looking for?
No, seriously where am I? Is the booth in Mordor?
How come you never see some members of the press on the show floor? All they do is hang out in the press room and do…I don’t even know.
That’s your actual marketing plan?
Oh yes, perfect. Stop walking in the middle of the aisle to gawk a booth babe. It’s not like people are trying to get somewhere.
If I set that rolly cart on fire, would you even notice?
Yes, I know the gun isn’t loaded. I still don’t want you to point it at me.
Seriously, please stop pointing guns at me.
So many tactical beards. It’s like I’m surrounded by hipster-operators: My ops are so black you’ve probably never heard of them.
I had a great time at SHOT this year. I didn’t get to see much product, as these days my time at SHOT Show is spent in booths having meetings with people. That being said, the people watching this year was AWESOME.
